FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

The Town of Clare­mont is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing its res­i­dents with at­trac­tive streetscapes and pub­lic spa­ces. To those res­i­dents who have re­cently been in­vited to have a say on the pro­posed un­der­ground­ing of power sup­plies in the north east cor­ner of our Town I urge you to re­spond to this im­por­tant sur­vey. While we are dis­ap­pointed with the lack of sup­port from the state gov­ern­ment, we are for­tu­nate sound fi­nan­cial man­age­ment has put us in the po­si­tion to con­sider this project. Res­i­dents who have re­ceived the short sur­vey have un­til Mon­day 19 June to re­spond in­di­cat­ing whether they sup­port the project and, if so, their pre­ferred pay­ment op­tion. If ap­proved, un­der­ground power will be in­stalled to a pocket of ap­prox­i­mately 1000 prop­er­ties, re­sult­ing in the Town of Clare­mont be­ing en­tirely free of over­head pow­er­lines and pos­i­tively con­tribut­ing to a safer road­side en­vi­ron­ment and more reli­able power sup­ply. For the project to progress at least 50% of af­fected res­i­dents must re­spond to the sur­vey, with at least 50% of re­spon­dents in­di­cat­ing their sup­port for un­der­ground power. For more in­for­ma­tion on the project, or to ac­cess the sur­vey on­line, please visit our web­site.
