Foreshore tourist park

THE Streaky Bay District Council has made available $2.58 million in the 2018-19 annual business plan to buy nine cabins to be installed along the foreshore, forming stage two of councils commitment to redevelop the caravan park.

This commitment needed to be considered now so the cabins could be delivered during the park’s quieter period in August and September.

Stage one is underway, with three new cabins being constructed for delivery to the site in the coming months.

Recycling

As local residents may have heard by now the Streaky Bay District Council purchased the licence and associated equipment from bay recycling to continue to provide recycling services for the community. 

The council made this decision to ensure the ongoing service to the community with a view to the future and in line with our long term strategic plan, which includes more recycling such as plastics and cardboard et cetera.

The council would like to thank Julian Kelso for his service to the community in the past.

Medical clinic plans

I would like to thank the community for the amazing turn out at the sports complex for the meeting regarding the future of the Streaky Bay medical clinic and for forming the motion to go ahead with the incorporated association.

Our next step, besides advertising for hopefully two full-time doctors, is to organise a second meeting to meet with the interested people who wanted to be involved in this very important incorporated association.

There are still opportunities for those who did not register to do so, so I encourage you to contact council.

Also can I once again congratulate the Australia Day recipients.

It was another great turn out to the breakfast although the weather tested us a little but not to worry as we were saved by Penny and Hoges (again) at the last minute who allowed us onto the pub balcony. Thanks guys.

Also a big thank you to all the staff and volunteers for their hard work and contributions to the day.
