Owner onus on power

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

NED­LANDS ratepay­ers will help pay for power to go un­der­ground, it was de­cided at a coun­cil meet­ing held last week.

Ned­lands Coun­cil au­tho­rised three pro­pos­als for un­der­ground power, with two-thirds to be pro­vided by af­fected lot own­ers and one-third State Govern­ment grant fund­ing.

Own­ers from some 2400 lots will pay $1050 a year for 10 years, a to­tal of $2,328,889 a year.

Coun­cil also moved to con­sider $50,000 in the bud­get for un­der­ground power ex­per­tise.

Mayor Max Hip­kins said coun­cil wanted all power in the City of Ned­lands to be un­der­ground and had about one-sixth of the area left to com­plete.
