City and Shire give to bushfire appeal
City of Karratha and Shire of Ashburton councillors have both voted in favour of donating thousands of dollars to the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund for victims of the South West bushfires.
The City of Karratha will donate $10,000 to the fund.
It follows a similar vote by the Shire of Ashburton to also provide $10,000 to the relief efforts.
The Shire originally intended to donate $5000 but councillor Peter Foster successfully moved a motion to double the amount.
The decision to increase the amount of the donation was carried unanimously.
