TODAY Council is extending a warm welcome to the Premier and his Cabinet as we host a State Cabinet meeting. As part of this meeting we will be briefing Cabinet members on the key priorities for Burnie. This includes projects we believe will provide benefits to the community. These include the Emu River Flood Study, Coastal Pathway Project, Montello Soccer Grounds upgrade, Burnie Magistrate and Supreme Court redevelopment and the Australian Sustainable Hardware Timber Mill proposal.

It is very important for Government to engage with and understand the needs of our community, and today we will be able to provide a comprehensive outline of the future aspirations for Burnie.

COUNCIL has been advised that A1 Tree Services, who are contracted by TasNetworks, will be clearing power line vegetation around the Burnie municipality over the next couple of months. Don’t worry if you see a build-up of prunings on nature-strips, A1 have advised us that they will endeavour to have all prunings picked up or chipped by the end of each working day, or if the volume is too large, by the end of the working week.

REGISTRATIONS are now open for the 2017 B&E Burnie Ten which is being held on Sunday 22 October. Once again competitors will have the choice of competing in the 5km or the 10km event. To register, please visit www.burnieten.com.au.

CONGRATULATIONS to Anne Wilson, Mavis Rowlands, Jill Stuttard and Kate Wainwright on your recent long service awards with the Burnie Guides. Anne and Mavis have achieved an incredible 40 years of service, and Jill and Kate have achieved 30 and 10 years respectively.
