Re­served for the dead

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THE name of Mos­man Park Men’s Shed founder Alf Snell can­not be used for a road to the com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity at Tom Per­rott Re­serve, McCabe Street be­cause Mr Snell is not dead.

At last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, coun­cil staff said the State Gov­ern­ment Ge­o­graphic Names Com­mit­tee would only ac­cept the names of those who had been dead for at least two years.

The Men’s Shed wanted to name the road so emer­gency ser­vices and po­lice could re­spond to a spe­cific ad­dress. Coun­cil­lors de­cided to rec­om­mend the Ge­o­graphic Names Com­mit­tee con­sider Per­rott Close.
