I have represented the Ward in 1995-7 and again from 2006 to the present time. I find being your representative on Council to be very rewarding. Please find out more about current items that I think are of interest as well as my achievements for the Ward and plans for the future.

Pay for garbage
There was a story on this matter in yesterday's paper and a bit of a retraction in today's. Sounds like a great idea and would certainly encourage residents to think about putting their waste into the correct bin. It might even help people to choose what they buy more carefully (considering the wrapping) and for sellers and/or deliverers of large items to take the wrapping with them. It should reduce Council rates if a way of doing this can be created without additional logistics support. I guess this is the catch, just how would Council do this? More importantly, how would you stop your neighbours, and anyone else for putting their stuff in your bin? If you have to lock it the how would it be unlocked? Maybe it is not such a good idea?
