Freo's View

The High Street mall in Fremantle is a very busy place where many people sit and watch the passing parade, read the local newspapers or have a bite to eat, so what a disgrace to see this bench full with bird shit on Wednesday morning. One would assume that the cleaning of public seats is a daily task each morning to make sure people don’t soil their clothes. Maybe the mall traders could also show more pride and check out the benches. It only takes a minute or two to clean them.

I am impressed with the new attitude at the City of Fremantle. Not only do we have a forward looking, very active council, but it seems to rub off on the officers as well. Look what a difference a working week makes.

I questioned why there were two posts needed in the same location in High Street for only two signs, and within five days the second post was removed and the second sign attached to the other one. That is very fast action by any local council standards, I reckon.

It was also good to see lovely Ella from the Parks&Gardens department checking out locations to put some seats near the Round House. I had suggested it to Mayor Brad Pettitt three weeks ago and yesterday the nice young woman with a very positive attitude was already looking into it.

And what about the possibility of lit-up plant pots along the Cappuccino Strip. That would creatively change the street at night.

Well done CoF. We are going places!
