New street trees sneaked in

n IT SEEMS council staff have tried to sneak some street beautification works in with a plan to create a parking bay for disabled people on Milligan Street.

A staff notice to council showed the proposal’s cost was $3,000. However, before the matter was considered, council staffer Peter Monks said the cost of the proposal was now $15,000.

It seems council staff found the opportunity to add another tree and some fancy kerbing to Milligan Street to hard to resist.

Council CEO Garry Hunt recommended the matter be deferred as he had no prior knowledge of the change of plans.

n A PROPOSAL to build an eight storey, forty-two apartment building virtually on the corner of Wellington and Hill Streets in East Perth has been deferred.

Councillor Laurance Goodman raised concerns about the impact traffic from the development could have on an already busy intersection.

The site, close to other major apartment developments, is currently vacant.

n FEES at the Citiplace Child Care Centre are tipped to rise again. Council is proposing the weekly fee be raised $183 from the current $178 for the 2000-01 year.
