The Fire Season is nearly here! It is everyone’s responsibility to prepare for the fire season and maintain their properties during the fire season and all year round.
Council’s Municipal Fire Prevention Officer will be commencing inspections in October and these will be ongoing until March 2019. We will issue fire prevention notices to properties that have not been maintained or prepared for the season.
More than 50 properties received infringements of over $1500 each last year. These fines, set by the State Government, will be issued when property owners fail to comply with fire prevention notice conditions. Residents will also incur costs for clean-up by contractors and administrative costs.
