COUNCIL’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 7pm on Tuesday, 5 December 2017 at the TMEC Centre of Manufacturing Excellence, with guest speaker Mr Lee Whiteley, Executive General Manager at Elphinstone Pty Ltd. Copies of the 2016-17 Annual Report are available at burnie.net or from the City Offices, 80 Wilson Street, Burnie. Submissions on any aspect of the Annual Report should be forwarded to the General Manager, PO Box 973, Burnie by 5.00pm on Thursday, 30 November 2017 for inclusion at the AGM.

COUNCIL has completed another successful hard waste collection service in the Burnie area. Drivers delivered anything that could be resold to the City Mission Tip Shop where income from sales is put back into local community support programs. Further sorting was then undertaken to separate as much recyclable material as possible, such as e-waste, scrap steel and scrap timber and then only items with no value go to landfill. Well done to everyone involved in the collection.  

THE launch of the 2018 Performing Arts Subscription Season will be held on Thursday, 30 November 2017 from 6.00pm at the Burnie Arts and Function Centre. This is a free event showcasing a taster of the upcoming season’s calendar, so come along for the big reveal featuring live performances by special guests.

THIS weekend we welcome cruise ships on two consecutive days with the Pacific Jewel arriving with approximately 2,500 passengers on Saturday, then The Pacific Eden on Sunday with 2,000 passengers. A busy weekend for Burnie with passengers on both days exploring the area and all that the region has to offer. A big thank you goes to the volunteers who add to the tourism experience.
