Midwest Times - - FRONT PAGE -

The res­i­dents of Yal­goo have earned them­selves the 2017 Tidy Towns Sus­tain­able Com­mu­ni­ties Gen­eral Ap­pear­ance award af­ter a con­tin­u­ing town-wide ef­fort to keep the neigh­bour­hood clean and lit­ter free.

Yal­goo Shire chief ex­ec­u­tive Sil­vio Brenzi said com­mu­nity ef­forts have re­sulted in sev­eral ad­di­tions to the town, in­clud­ing new stone path­ways, colour­ful mo­saics, fruit trees, shaded seat­ing and veg­etable beds.

“This year the Yal­goo com­mu­nity, from young chil­dren and MEEDAC work­ers, to school and Shire em­ploy­ees, have been work­ing hard to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of the Shire’s com­mu­nity hall,” he said.

“Due to fre­quent clean-ups and lit­ter ed­u­ca­tion, the street is lit­ter free and the na­ture strips are well main­tained.

“This is recog­ni­tion of which the whole Yal­goo com­mu­nity can be proud.”

The Tidy Towns award ac­knowl­edges re­gional towns that sus­tain their clean­li­ness, en­vi­ron­ment, in­fra­struc­ture and over­all aes­thet­ics.
