Be Bush­fire Ready!

Guardian Express - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

The City of Bayswa­ter is seek­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from po­ten­tial op­er­a­tors to lease the café/kiosk at The RISE in May­lands.

The RISE mul­ti­pur­pose com­mu­nity hub is a pop­u­lar cen­tre close to May­lands town cen­tre that caters for a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties; with fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing sports courts, gym­na­sium, func­tion and meet­ing rooms, of­fices and a crèche. The RISE is also home to the May­lands Li­brary.

To find out more about this business op­por­tu­nity, call Tim Wright at the City of Bayswa­ter on phone 9272 0979 or email tim.wright@bayswa­

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est close on Tues­day, 31 Oc­to­ber 2017. As warmer weather ap­proaches and the bush­fire sea­son gets un­der­way, now is a good time for res­i­dents to en­sure their property is bush­fire ready. The bush­fire sea­son can pose a se­ri­ous threat to property and it is im­por­tant that home­own­ers take a proac­tive ap­proach to re­duc­ing any risk.

For blocks over 2000 square me­tres a three me­tre fire break should be es­tab­lished around the perime­ter. For smaller prop­er­ties, own­ers should re­move flammable ma­te­rial, such as dead plants and long dry grass, from the en­tire block and lawns should be mowed reg­u­larly.

With high tem­per­a­tures once again pre­dicted for sum­mer, it makes sense to be bush­fire aware and ready.

The bush­fire sea­son runs from 1 Novem­ber 2017 to 30 April 2018.

Con­tact the City’s Rangers for advice on mak­ing your property bush­fire safe by call­ing 9272 0972.
