City and Shire give to bush­fire ap­peal

Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - ■ Tom Zaun­mayr

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.
