Mayor's Message - 19 January 2019

It’s great to see stage one of the Wild Mersey Mountain Bike Trails network at Warrawee Reserve, Latrobe being well utilised by community members and visitors of all capabilities.  Even at this early stage we’ve had visitors from both interstate and overseas and the feedback has been extremely positive. With the increase in patronage also comes an increase in traffic along Hamilton Street so please be mindful of the larger traffic volumes when in and around this area.  Information on the trails can be found at www.ridewildmersey.com.au  or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wildmerseymountainbiketrails


Council’s resealing of selected urban and rural roads is scheduled to commence tomorrow.  Council’s contractor will be undertaking works on Smith and Others, Greens Creek, Valleyfield and Oppenheim’s Roads over the next few days.  Following completion of the rural roads, Percival, Stanley (south), Perrin, Ready, Lochner, Memory Lane and King’s Lane in the Latrobe Township will be next on the program.  Selected roads in the Port Sorell and Moriarty areas will be done in several weeks’ time however, Council will keep residents updated as details come to light.  Please contact Council with any queries regarding the scheduled reseals.
