It’s been great to see the Wallaroo Breakwater back intact after the damage sustained during the storms!
The project was started and completed within the month of June, with toe and armour rock placed along the damaged boat ramp and car park walls.
People can now easily cast out a line, take in the ocean views and have a greater vantage point for the New Year’s Eve fireworks later this year!
Council thanks Australian Government, who funded majority of the project as part of the Drought Communities Programme – Extension.

Councillors Tim Love, Dean Rodda, Brent Walker and Margaret Pope received a tour of the Moonta Town Hall repair and upgrade works.
Copper Coast Council CEO Russell Peate, Director of Infrastructure Services Tim Neumann and John Liedig from Liedig Building Group led the Councillors through the current works on the deteriorated roof trusses.
135 years of existence has taken its toll, with original supports shifting despite being bolted down and numerous holes and cracks within the trusses and other aspects of the building.
Due to the failure of the roof structure and safety being our number one priority, all trusses, hips ends, purlins, ceiling joists and stage framing, among other things, are being replaced.
While new resources are required to restore and make the Town Hall safe for use, rectification work is utilising the existing geometry for the trusses to keep the exterior of the roof looking as it was back in 1885.
This project is partly funded by the Federal Government’s Drought Communities Programme - Extension, Round Two, where Council received $1m in funding for approved projects across the Copper Coast Council area.

can we also address the pidgeon problem in the main street it so nice to dodge pigeon poo on the footpaths. the tourist love it.

Is the council going to use local trades and local suppliers? Or are they going to use trades and suppliers that have no benefit to the community?

Lucky it’s not in Wallaroo, Council would be demolishing it.......

Carol Burford

A grand Town Hall in such an historic town,needs all the loving care it can get.They must have had some excellent concerts there back in the days when Moonta had the largest population outside of Adelaide in S.A.

Pull it down. Will provide more room for parking and allow cars to keep off the dunes.

Great to hear money well spent they are some big beams where do you get quality wood like that now?

Starting today, those entering South Australia can apply for pre-approval to put their minds at ease before reaching the border.
The online pre-approval form will identify whether the person is an essential traveller, needs to self-quarantine or is able to travel without restrictions—streamlining the process when arriving at the border.
People won’t be turned away at the border if they haven’t completed the form, but may be given a direction to self-quarantine, depending where they have travelled.
For more information and to fill out the form, visit www.police.sa.gov.au/border-form

Addressing risk management, improvement opportunities and on-farm implication will ensure a smooth transition from drought into recovery and back to business as usual, or better.
With the State Government subsidising the program by $7,150, the cost to your business to participate will be $825 (GST inc).

Starting tomorrow, July 1, 2020, launching at the Port Hughes and Wallaroo Boat Ramps will become simpler with the use of the Easypark app (app.easypark.net).
After downloading the app and registering, the process is simple:
• Pinpoint your location on the app or enter the parking area code (Wallaroo - 20905, Port Hughes - 20900)
• Select a day ticket (valid up to midnight on day of purchase)
• Confirm your vehicle registration and payment (now $8 per day)
Once you are done for the day, don’t forget to press stop on the app so we know you are no longer using the Boat Ramp.
The option to purchase annual permits will also be available, with recreational permits at $90.
For assistance, call Council on (08) 8828 1200 or email info@coppercoast.sa.gov.au
Please note: Annual commercial permits ($275) via the app are currently unavailable, but can still be purchased, along with all other permits, by calling Council on 8828 1200 or visiting our Kadina Office.

Copper Coast Council what happens if people forget to turn off the app? Are ramp users only going to get charged for one day or are you going to charge people everyday until they turn the app off? I will NOT use this app as I believe if i forget to turn the app off it is going to keep charging me daily until i realize that i haven't turned it off. This app is a SCAM

As of today, the South Australian Government has initiated Step 3 of their Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions.
Businesses and events are now only limited to a density restriction of one person per two square metres, with no limits on the number of people at public and private gatherings.
Further activities and businesses will be able to re-open with a COVID Safe Plan (as per Step 2 and Step 2 Plus). However, activities, events and gathering with more than 1000 people or venues with drinking and dancing both require a COVID Management Plan.

99% of the people who get this virus end up fully recovering without any vaccine. ... Stop the scare mongering and get on with normal life

More people die from the annual flu which has a vaccine than from covid-19 for which there is no vaccine .... Moral of the story being.... YOU DON'T NEED A VACCINE TO SURVIVE COVID-19.

Our contractors are calling on the community for help obtaining more bricks and stones for our Cemetery Wall restoration projects.
Copper Coast residents are being asked to look for not just any old brick, but our historic sludge miners bricks (yellow/creamy coloured), which are pictured below.
The contractors are also after more limestone (pictured below) to replace salt damaged stones, these can be found in old limestone barns and houses.
The goal is to use localised materials to maintain the unique look of our state-heritage cemetery and continue its Copper Coast history.
If you have something that you think may be of interest or are planning old stone building demolition work, please call Chris on 0412 238 398.

North Beach Progress Association has entrusted local Janyne Price with painting a mural at the North Beach Playground and it's certainly catching the eyes of many!
All the paint has been donated and everything on the walls is being suggested by residents (and “sticky-beak” birds flying in! 🐦)—from some of the first prawn trawlers to hit our shores to the Kombi vans onlooking the waters.
Janyne has been volunteering her time for countless days, with the first side of the wall completed.
She is expecting to finish the other side of the wall in the coming weeks (weather permitting!)
Thank you, Janyne, for all your hard work! Be sure to give your horn a toot as you drive past her along Clayton Drive 🚗🔊
