June 2018 

As winter fast approaches it is not uncommon to suffer from ailments such as a cold to more severe illnesses such as pneumonia and flu. I encourage residents to book in to have their flu shots with their local GP. 

Budget 2018/2019

Recently, at a Full Council meeting I supported a resolution to consult the community about a rate increase of 2.97% for 2018/2019. The increase will help fund $1.7 million worth of major projects including the Way2Go Program, Community Advocacy, Fund My Neighbourhood Projects and $285,000 towards necessary improvements such as new footpaths. A rate increase of 2.97% means on average a rate increase of approximately $47. Financial savings and efficiencies of $500,000 for 2018/2019 have been identified and I am pushing for further savings. 

Domestic Assistance

Mitcham Council provides domestic assistance, home maintenance and home modifications to residents in need of such services. The feedback received from residents is that Mitcham Council delivers an excellent service. The residents build a relationship with the staff and volunteers who provide the service. I have consistently advocated for Mitcham Council to provide this service. 

Recently, at a Full Council meeting I voted against a resolution that Council’s direct service provision to people seeking domestic assistance, home maintenance and home modifications end at 30 June 2018. Unfortunately, the resolution passed is that Council tender out these services for the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2020. 

Repatriation Hospital

I have consistently advocated for the Repatriation Hospital to be maintained as a health precinct. Fortunately, the new State Government has announced that the Hospital will remain as a genuine health precinct. There are many people in the community who welcome this news as many individuals or their family members have received a high level of personal service in the past from the Hospital. 

Community Events

This is the third year I have had the pleasure of presenting awards to children and teenagers at the skateboarding and scooter competition at Avenue Road, Skate Park, Cumberland Park. It was great to see a large number of competitors participate in this community event. I would like to thank the family and friends of the competitors who gave their support, as well as the hardworking and committed Council staff. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any issues or concerns.
