Road reseal improvements get underway
The Shire’s annual urban road re-sealing program gets underway on 1 August. Traffic controls will be in place around work areas and the community’s cooperation is appreciated.
Attracting events to Broome
Receiving approval to hold events in public places around Broome is now simpler and more streamlined following a review of the Shire’s policy. The updated Events Policy was developed following consultation with Broome’s events and tourism industry and adopted after a public comment period.
Broome banner headed to Perth CBD
A 3m-tall banner in the centre of Perth designed by St Mary’s College student John Bill Quilisadio is representing Broome in one of WA’s biggest annual community art projects from Sunday 24 July to Saturday 6 August.
Lighting up Anne St
Street lighting in a section of Anne St in Old Broome has been upgraded to improve community safety. The section between Dora St and D’Antoine St now has new street lights, brighter LED lamps and longer highway arms that provide a better spread of light.
Rates notices issued for 2016/17 year
Rates notices for the 2016/17 year were issued on 19 July after Council adopted the 2016/17 Annual Budget on 30 June 2016 to provide a full 12 months for the Shire to achieve an ambitious portfolio of significant projects. This provides ratepayers with the required minimum of 35 days from the date of issue to make payment, as in previous years.
