August 2017

I trust you are all keeping well in this very cold time of the year. 


During the last few months the rainfall has been much lower than the same time in 2016 and therefore there has not been, to this time, the alarm of floodwater threat in and around our Ward. 

Day Reserve stormwater detention basin is still proceeding well, and appears to be becoming close to completion. We are hoping this construction will reduce the flooding that has happened in Rockville and Day Avenues. This Reserve area will look quite attractive when the water plants and new trees are established. 

Budget 2017/2018

Considerable staff and Elected Member time has been spent bringing the 2017/2018 budget to Council. Administration has once again been able to find further financial savings for this budget and this in turn reduces the rate applicable to rateable percentage increase for the next year. With these financial savings this has reduced the rate increase this year to 2.90 percent. This rate has been approved by Council on 27 June. The rate increase is in keeping with Council's philosophy to keep rate increases as low as possible. 

Daws./Goodwood/Springbank Roads Intersection

The City of Mitcham has been fortunate to have had a recent State Government announcement that the above intersection will finally be funded to enable the construction to allow Daws Road to pass through portion of the Bedford Industries land direct to Springbank Road. This will also assist Goodwood Road traffic flow much smoother only having one stop of traffic lights instead of two. 

We wait on the final funding outcome which will assist all motorists! 

Repatriation General Hospital

We still do not know the official outcome of the sale of this treasured Hospital site or how the site will be configured and for what purpose! 

I have been on leave for a while, if you missed me on the phone, please don't hesitate to contact me so I can be of assistance on Council matters on 8277 1884 or 0402 517 945.
