FIRE CLEAN UP PROJECT COMPLETE
Following the 2016 Waroona and Yarloop fire, the Shire of Waroona was granted funding from the Department of Premier and Cabinet which was intended to assist with various activities related to fire recovery. A large proportion of that funding was used in clean up and restoration works to over 50 properties in the Shires of Waroona and Harvey. The project, which commenced in March of this year, involved various contractors being engaged by the Shire of Waroona to carry out works on behalf of the affected landowners, including general clean up works, pushing up of destroyed fences and dead vegetation and restoration of damage caused by firefighting efforts. The last of the work was completed in mid-June. The works were the second round of clean up works with a smaller yet more intensive program taking place in late 2017. This was a complex logistical project and the Shire of Waroona greatly appreciates the efforts of all involved.
