'Green Team' to start work soon

One of my priorities is making the City clean and attractive by investing in infrastructure and introducing new programs.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday 23 February, I proposed the introduction of a "Green Team" to manage the upkeep and beautification of our City's main roads.

This multi-skilled, proactive team will focus on cleaning major Council roads and streets as they travel throughout the City and act as a "one stop shop" for basic maintenance and cleaning services.

The work of this team will nvolve slashing overgrown verges, pruning trees, tidying up our roundabouts, weeding, cleaning up rubbish and increasing street sweeping on major thoroughfares.

The team will also collect shopping trolleys abandoned on or near our main roads. 

Residents can expect to see improvements in the City's streetscape from next month as the "Green Team" starts work.

I encourage everyone to be part of keeping our City clean and attractive by not littering and placing their rubbish in the correct bins. 

Suburb banners Council is placing banners at the entry to the City's 13 main suburbs to give them a colourful and distinctive look.

The rollout of the suburban banners is being done in stages and many sites have already had banners installed - Canley Vale, Bonnyrigg, Edensor Park, Carramar, Abbotsbury, Cabramatta (Cumberland Highway golf course), Cabramatta (Cabramatta Road and Hume Highway) and Wetherill Park.

The banners identify the Council, suburb and relevant historical information and are a way of making people proud of where they live by giving our suburbs a clear identity. 

These two initiatives aim to make our City a more attractive and cleaner place to live.
