On Sun­day 27 Au­gust I was proud to of­fi­cially open the Dol­phin Olympics, one of my favourite events of the year. Held an­nu­ally at Wan­neroo Aquamo­tion and now in its 18th year, the event saw more than 80 special needs par­tic­i­pants from across Perth take part in the fun-filled swim­ming com­pe­ti­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions to ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pated and to our won­der­ful swim team for their out­stand­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion of the day. I am also de­lighted to share that the City of Wan­neroo was awarded the inaugural 2017 WALGA / RSL WA Anzac Day Award at the Western Aus­tralian Lo­cal Govern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing last month. The Award is in recog­ni­tion of the City’s strong col­lab­o­ra­tion and en­gage­ment with the Wan­neroo RSL Sub-Branch and com­mu­nity, in re­la­tion to the co­or­di­na­tion and man­age­ment of the Branch’s 2017 Anzac Day Ser­vice. Well done to all who worked so in­cred­i­bly hard to en­sure the suc­cess of the event.

With the weather warm­ing up more peo­ple will be en­joy­ing time outdoors; there­fore it is timely to re­mind dog own­ers to en­sure they are re­spon­si­ble. Please re­mem­ber to keep dogs on a lead un­less you are in a des­ig­nated off-lead area and AL­WAYS pick up af­ter your dog. Ir­re­spon­si­ble dog own­er­ship re­flects badly on ev­ery­body, in­clud­ing those who do the right thing!

The 2017 Lo­cal Govern­ment Elec­tions will take place next month. The City is con­duct­ing this elec­tion as a postal elec­tion with the Western Aus­tralian Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (WAEC) and elec­tion pack­ages will be de­liv­ered to homes from Wed­nes­day, 27 Septem­ber 2017. All elec­tion pack­ages must be posted to the Re­turn­ing Of­fi­cer us­ing the re­ply-paid en­ve­lope pro­vided. Please en­sure you al­low suf­fi­cient time for your pack­age to be re­ceived be­fore close of polls at 6pm sharp on Satur­day, 21 Oc­to­ber 2017. The Wan­neroo Civic Cen­tre will be open on 21 Oc­to­ber from 8am-6pm if you re­quire re­place­ment or pro­vi­sional vot­ing pa­pers. Please visit the City’s web­site at

wan­neroo.wa.gov.au for more in­for­ma­tion. Mayor Tracey Roberts JP
