Many wrongly believe ONLY fibro homes contain asbestos. Asbestos products can most likely be found in ANY Australian home built or renovated before 1987 even brick, weatherboard, fibro and clad homes. Asbestos can be found in kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and under floor coverings, behind wall and floor tiles, in cement floors, internal and external walls, garages, ceilings, eaves, fences, extensions to homes, and backyard sheds: it could be anywhere! It’s vital that Australians take the warnings seriously, stop playing ‘renovation roulette’ and protect themselves and their families from exposure to asbestos fibres during renovations and maintenance. Visit www.asbestosawareness.com.au for more information about how to protect yourself and your families from exposure to dangerous asbestos fibres.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR THE PS RUBY COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVE APPOINTMENTS Closing Date: 5.00pm Friday 7 November 2014 A review of the management and operations of PS Ruby completed recently has provided the direction for Council and the community to work together in assuring the future of PS Ruby as an important part of the living steam heritage of the Australian Inland River system. Key to the ongoing success of PS Ruby is a Board of Management with the vision and mix of skills needed to implement the business plan and to work with volunteers. Council is therefore seeking expression of interest from members of the community for the positions of Community Representative (2 positions). Experience in working with community based, not for profit organisations would be an advantage. The PS Ruby Board is a Section 355 Committee of Council, and meets monthly. Interested community members may obtain more information on the role and responsibilities of the Board and an Expression of Interest Application by contacting Bill Nicol on 5023 1485. Applications close on 7 November 2014. GOL GOL CEMETERY Council confirms that we have conducted a geophysical investigation on unmarked graves at the Gol Gol Cemetery. Council has received this report, however this is not available for public viewing as further detailed analysis of the information is required. EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST GRANT WRITING Council is seeking to engage experienced individuals or organisations to identify funding opportunities and prepare complex grant applications on an adhoc basis. Interested parties should lodge an expression of interest with Council detailing experience, availability and preferred basis of remuneration.
