Intro

Local Government Minister David Templeman today wrote to all Mayors, Shire Presidents and Commissioners across the sector and thanked them for their work to date in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis.

Mr Templeman urged the sector to focus on a number of initiatives over the coming week, including:

  • Re-opening libraries and other local government facilities that comply with the new requirements
  • Helping the restaurant and hospitality sector by being as flexible as possible in letting businesses open up again, particularly regarding alfresco operations
  • Moving back to conducting council and shire chamber meetings in person - while observing social distancing at all times - and with the public attending where possible
  • Promoting the new regional travel guidelines
  • Re-opening sport and recreation facilities where practicable.
