Sunday Tip reopening likely

- BY ROBERT MUIR

Users or would be users of local landfills and transfer stations at Corowa, Howlong and Mulwala appear set to have their wish for a return to Sunday morning opening hours.

The subject was on Federation Council’s agenda for its monthly meeting yesterday, with a recommenda­tion in line with residents’ and councillor­s’ wishes. The recommenda­tion was from council’s director engineerin­g services Steve Carmichael.

Council reduced the opening hours at the three sites on August 1 in line with customer usage data and council’s ongoing commitment to improve efficienci­es of its services.

After much discussion by Federation councillor­s at their September meeting, and a leading statement from Mr Carmichael as to how the service would be funded, council decided a report be presented about the possibilit­y of Sunday opening hours for the Howlong, Corowa and Mulwala Tips.

That report was presented at council’s October meeting yesterday. The report, by council staff, follows a Notice of Motion by Cr David Longley that council immediatel­y reinstate a Sunday opening of the three Tips “which better serves the residents of those communitie­s”.

A report will appear in next week’s edition of the Yarrawonga Chronicle.
