Council skips consultation on Clean-up Days

Community Board chairperson Gerard Collings will be raising an
unfavourable proposal on Clean Up Days with his City Council
colleagues.

The Infrastructure Services Committee has resolved to continue Clean-up
Days but at those rates that are applied for general solid waste at
the landfills and transfer stations:
• cars $12.00
• Station wagons $20.00
• Cars with trailers, vans and utes $30.00

"I am extremely disappointed that the committee has passed
this resolution without providing the opportunity for comment on the
proposed charging from either the Community Board or the affected
communities," Gerard Collings said. Gerard hopes locals will contact a
Board member to express their views.
