Sup­port pub­lic health and safety

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

I would like to thank all who have so far signed the White­heads Creek pe­ti­tion and en­cour­age oth­ers to show sup­port by also sign­ing. The num­bers are en­cour­ag­ing from the com­pleted forms that we have re­ceived back so far.

What the pe­ti­tion is ask­ing Par­lia­ment for is to al­low the flash flood wa­ters di­rect ac­cess to the river. Thus prevent­ing fur­ther loss of life and dam­age to prop­erty. Also to stop the sew­er­age water run­ning though the town caus­ing bad smells and pos­si­ble heath is­sues. Not to men­tion the mos­quito breed­ing.

This is an im­por­tant is­sue to the present and fu­ture health and safety of Sey­mour res­i­dents and the com­mu­nity.

I be­lieve that Par­lia­ment has been made aware of Sey­mour’s cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and so I can’t ex­press how im­por­tant it now is for res­i­dents to have their say by sup­port­ing this pe­ti­tion.

Pe­ti­tion forms can be found in var­i­ous busi­nesses around town and ev­ery­one above 18 years of age who lives in the post­code 3660 may sign. Please help make our town a pleas­ing en­vi­ron­ment for lo­cals as well as visi­tors to the area.

— Peter Chap­man, Sey­mour
