While we often complain about our local government, well, all governments really, we also should acknowledge the huge and varied work they are doing and what a challenge this must be for the elected members and officers.

Here some snap shots provided by the City of Fremantle at the Annual General Electors Meeting last evening:

  • 200 applications for alfresco dining, food stalls, short stay accommodation and liquor licenses

  • 18,015 cruise ship passengers visited
  • 9,682 children’s toys loaned through the Fremantle Toy Library
  • 59,647 phone calls received by customer service
  • 43,327 contributed to local groups through community development grants
  • 1.000+ new trees and shrubs planted in the suburbs
  • 70,744 visitors to Fremantle Arts Centre-a record!
  • 142.5 tones of material recycled at Fremantle Recycling Centre
  • 155 new parking bays at Cappuccino Strip carpark
  • 5,765 callouts for Community Safety Officers
  • 1276 people assisted at Fremantle Community Legal Centre

    I believe that a carpark has been looked at within the site off Ord Street

    As I understand it the carpark is still for sale and I don’t understnd that at all. Can the site be developed and if so where would Leisure Centre visitors park?

    ” in light of the number of attendees at the Leisure centre, could not one assume that the Leisure centre car park has been a major contributing factor for these numbers, and so why is this asset on Council’s list of future sales, or is that not the case?”
