LIFTING OF TOTAL FIRE BAN TO RESTRICTED FIRE SEASON
The Rules Reduction Taskforce was recently appointed by the Minister of Local Government. The Taskforce represents a drive for positive change. Its job is to listen to concerns about regulations which frustrate property owners and those who use property and make recommendations to the Government.
The Public are advised that in order to underdake work on the Long Gully Bridge (Rutherford Road, Albury) it will be necessary to detour road traffic through the adjacent ford. It is therefore suggested road user vehicles be capable of 4WD during this time.
Date of the detour - Monday 9 March 2015 for approximately 3-4 weeks.
We suggest that if possible you use an alternative route and avoid the work area during this period.
Effective until further notice
NO watering of lawns!
Gardens can be watered for a maximum of two hours per day between the hours of 7pm and 8am. If your street number is even you can do this on even days. If your street number is odd you can do this on odd numbered days.
