As you may be aware, the State Government and the City of Armadale have lodged a submission with the Local Government Advisory Board to change boundaries of the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale which effectively erases our community.
The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale alongside the community rejects this proposal and has lodged an alternative proposal and submission which widens our boundaries taking parts of Kwinana, Rockingham, Armadale and Wandering.
The Board's consultation phase is now complete. The Local Government Advisory Board will be making recommendations regarding metropolitan Local Government Reform to the Minister by 30th June 2014. The Shire expects to hear news from the Local Government Advisory Board towards the end of the year. Council would like to acknowledge the work of so many residents who lodged a submission, with a special mention to members of the Save SJ Shire Group who volunteered a significant number of hours for the cause.
Mardella, Serpentine, Hopeland and Keysbrook is scheduled for pick up between 21 April to 25 April 2014
Further details can be found here.
The Shire offices will be closed from Friday 18 April to Monday 21 April, inclusive for the Easter break.
