A message from our Shire President Cr Paul Omodei
Even with the weather rapidly cooling off we are still enjoying many events in the region. Massive amounts of effort is put in continually and repeatedly by members of the community to bring these events to us each year. I commend you all on your dedication and commitment to the benefit of the community.
Successful Safer Communities Grant
We have recently been successful in securing a grant for $307,085 from round two of the Safer Communities Fund. The funds will be used for the Manjimup Town Centre Revitalisation Project which will incorporate closed circuit television throughout Manjin Park, the Manjimup Heritage Park and the Brockman Street precinct with a direct link to the Manjimup Police station. A direct live link to the Manjimup Police station will reduce crime and anti-social behavior in the park and CBD with image quality being suitable as evidence.
Lots to offer
The weather may be cold and wet but the Shire still has a lot to offer to keep you entertained. Head down to one of the libraries and grab yourself a good book, visit the art gallery, check out some of the breathtaking waterways that are flowing so spectacularly at this time of year, or head down to the AquaCentre for some fitness classes or heated pool fun.
Manjimup Library refurbishment
The Manjimup Library was closed on Monday for a minor refurbishment with the physical change of shelving and layout. The new metal shelving kindly donated by the Albany Public Library, will result in a more accessible library and community space, while utilising modern methods of housing the collection. Until next time …. Paul
