Walpole

Travellers using caravans and campervans should soon have access to a more reliable sewage dump point in Walpole.

The existing dump point has been closed for maintenance from time to time because it kept getting blocked.

Shire spokesperson said this was due to travellers putting items such as wet wipes into the system.

Council voted to spend $30,000 at the last Council meeting to move the facility to a more suitable location east of the public toilets.

Broomehill

Broomehill shire Council has agreed to donate $300 to the primary school’s P&C association.

The money was to be used for their upcoming “Clean up Australia Day” event on Sunday, August 29.

Tambellup

Broomehill- Tambellup residents and visitors now have access to new COVID-19 clinics.

WA Country Health Service will be providing the service at the Tambellup Hall in October and November.

Council has voted to waive the usual hall hire fee.

Jerramungup

Jerramungup Council has voted to purchase a new vehicle worth $40,000 for its Works Department after a shire worker damaged the previous vehicle.

A work vehicle was purchased in August 2018 and was due to be replaced in the 2022/23 financial year, however in July 2021, an employee drove the vehicle through a puddle, causing the engine to break down.

Shire insurers would not cover the repair of the vehicle out of safety concerns and wrote the car off, with LGIS providing a settlement offer of $29,573.64.

The Council voted to authorise the out of budget expense of $40,000, excluding GST, for the outright purchase of a new Mitsubishi Triton.

The purchase of the new Triton will come from the settlement money, with the remaining $10,426.36 to be offset by funds in the Plant Replacement Reserve.

Council voted to note the increase in revenue for the 2021/22 annual budget based on the settlement offer.
