Coun­cil plans thank-you party

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

SUBIACO coun­cil­lors have joked they might need to book out Subiaco Oval to ac­com­mo­date a thank-you party for those who cam­paigned against lo­cal gov­ern­ment re­form.

Coun­cil unan­i­mously voted to host a cel­e­bra­tion func­tion to recog­nise com­mu­nity vol­un­teers who “worked tire­lessly to en­sure the in­tent of the Dadour amend­ment was up­held” at a meet­ing last month.

“This party is a great op­por­tu­nity to keep up the pres­sure in terms of chang­ing the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Act to in­clude the Dadour amend­ment,” Cr Julie Mathe­son said.

Mayor Heather Hen­der­son said she was plan­ning to hold the af­ter­noon tea at The Palms Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on April 19.

“We thought we would have a lit­tle cel­e­bra­tion and in­vite the key play­ers who worked so hard,” Mrs Hen­der­son said. “I think it is im­por­tant, as Subiaco was at the fore­front of the re­form in the legal case and many of the other events that were held.”
