FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK
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.
