A mes­sage from our Shire Pres­i­dent Cr Paul Omodei

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times Life -


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
