🗑️GENERAL WASTE BIN🗑️
While the 120L and 140L bins have been phased out for businesses, residents are able to continue using either of these as their general waste bin ✅
Once your 120L green-lidded general waste bin is no longer usable (damaged/deteriorated beyond repair), residents will need to purchase a 140L red-lidded bin to replace it 🆕
The larger volume of the bin not only allows for more waste, but it’s shorter and wider build reduces the chance of it falling over and leaving your rubbish all over the street! 😨
For more information about our Kerbside Collection Service and the upcoming switch to a FOGO system for residents on 1 July 2021, visit bit.ly/CCWasteRecycling ♻️ ... See moreSee less
So we have to buy another bin right....dont know why just dont all have 240lt especially if they are talking about going to make pickup f/n...
And why the old bins can’t be used. We still have an old green bin with a dark lid and they won’t collect it. Only council I know where we have to buy our own bins 😡. What are council rates for???
I recycle everything I can & my red lid bin is still full each week ....fortnightly pick up for "general waste bin" is going to be absolutely ridiculous !!!!....not to mention how badly smelling our bins all will be sitting there for a fortnightly collection....this is the dumbest thing the council is about to do ....this is only going to create people dumping their extra rubbish in places where they shouldn't !!!!....well done council for being absolute idiots in this decision....you should've asked each resident their thoughts on this before you decided to bring it in ....whomever thought of this fortnightly collection obviously lives alone, doesn't have babies with shitty nappies or dogs that shit ....watch the rubbish build up on edge of our townships when this comes in ....& how much extra money is the illegal dumping of rubbish that more than likely will happen is going to cost the council (us rate payers) to clean up in the end !!!!....public consultation should've been done first because there's a lot of residents out there that will be badly affected by your dumb decision....

👧PROJECT BASED LEARNING STUDENTS👦
Council is pleased to be in partnership with Kadina Memorial School to provide students the opportunity to learn while volunteering in the community ❤️

👷PORT HUGHES BOAT RAMP DREDGING👷
Users of the Port Hughes Boat Ramp can now gain access without delay, following completion of dredging works today 🎣
These works were completed ahead of schedule due to a good run of weather ☀️
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused and we thank you for your patience 🙂 ... See moreSee less
What about all the weed that is still there by the wharf guess that will stay there and only get worse by the way I know the council monitors facebook eagerly awaiting your response
Ongoing yawn...always will be at this ramp.
Not sure what part you dredged as my sounder shows 0.5 meters coming in and that was an hour before low tide and I had to lift up my motors as the weed in the middle was getting into my intakes 😡

Looks as though you are treating the ones on Moonta/Wallaroo road toward Poona Mine,! I can remember when District council ordered ratepayers to kill and remove African Boxthorn but there are still a number on the same road some 50 odd years later!!😬
The before and after pictures appear to show the work of the cactoblastis moth as there are no visible tell-tale signs (white 'shelters') of the cochineal. If these are pictures from dead mans hill road then that looks like it was the cactoblastis moth that did the damage there.
The cochineal that exist in the Copper Coast appear to be the species that prefer the Opuntia ficus indica. What species are you going to release within the Copper Coast Council area?. Noting that O. ficus indica is NOT a declared plant anywhere in Australia and it is being grown by many people in their home gardens, who is going to be held responsible when these insects kill non-declared plants growing in peoples gardens as features, source of food or commercial crop ? ? ?

🌾YP FIELD DAYS BBQ🍖
The Yorke Peninsula Field Days is Australia's Oldest Field Days, and there is a reason for that—the people behind the scenes
Their last biennial event in 2019 was one of the hardest yet, with their administration complex burnt down only months out from the event 😞
Their volunteers, committee and administration still managed to pull together and celebrate the event's 125th birthday that year 😮
In appreciation of their efforts throughout the years, and even as they prepare for this year's event, Copper Coast Council threw a traditional BBQ lunch today as a chance for our Mayor and CEO to socialise and thank them all in person 👏
Yorke Peninsula Field Days CEO Peter Anderson and President Martin Kenny were present, with Mr Kenny presenting both our Mayor and CEO their own Field Days caps—even modelling them for a photo 😉
Once again, we thank all that help with the Yorke Peninsula Field Days and hope people will continue to volunteer their time and support the Field Days to keep this longstanding event going 🥳 ... See moreSee less

Copper Coast Council is seeking public comment on whether the North Beach Foreshore Speed Limit should remain at 30km/h or be reduced 🤔
This Public Consultation is part of our resolution following February's Council Meeting, where a request by a resident to reduce the speed limit was received 🙋♂️
Want to have your say on what the speed limit should be? Simply answer our one question survey 👉https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NorthBeachSpeed
For more information and other ways to submit your feedback 👉http://bit.ly/CCNorthBeachSpeed
All submissions on suggested speed limits are to be received by 4pm on Wednesday, 31 March 2021 📅 ... See moreSee less
Can’t go any slower because of the ruts and bumps it’s walling speed anyway. below 30 k’s/hr or are they trying to keep cars off beach completely
Any one with a brain would do 30 or slower
I dont think changing the speed limit will slow the people who speed on the beach down.
When ya get some old bat insisting to walk on a designated track that the cars have made, and theres a 50 meters of clear walkway next to her... stating it is a public area and I can walk where I want.. deliberately walking in front of cars to get her point across....this Karen is the problem!...common sense??
There is so much to see slower is better hey Jordan Rivett
Have completed the survey and have suggested reduction to 10km let’s make it safer for everyone to use it.
30 is too quick
40 is kool
Leave it as is. Majority follow the limit.
School crossings are 25 so 25-30 is fine If you go 10 you may as well walk the beach
council dont allow a couple of idiots to ruin it for the majority, leave it as it is.
If it's not policed, what difference does speed limit make?
Increase too 60
Leave it at 30 ks
I voted to keep it at 30kph
I don’t think any vehicles should be allowed to go on beaches, they drive up and down as do the motorbikes, kids around, absolute disaster
Leave it at 30
Leave it alone you are just going to encourage more speeding how about fixing the road into Wallaroo what a disgrace.
leave it where it is it's only the knuckleheads that need educating
“A request by a resident”? So out of all the residents it’s only 1 who wants it changed? Why is this even a discussion? Leave it as is but maybe police it more in peak periods when the tourists are out trying to ruin it for everyone.
yes, fixing roads would be a better move
20 would be better but no one's going to take notice so may as well leave it at 30 the idiots will still do there own speed

🔥CONDITIONAL PERMIT BURNING SEASON📄
Conditional Permits are issued every year to farmers who are needing to burn off their land to prepare for the coming season 👨🌾
These Conditional Permits will be implemented from 1 March until 30 April 2021, and anyone without a permit will not be allowed to light a fire 🙅
Permit holders are still prohibited to light fires:
🚫 on any Total Fire Ban day
🚫 on Saturdays, Sundays or Public Holidays
🚫 before 10am and must be extinguished by 9pm
🚫 when prevailing winds will create smoke hazard to road users or a nuisance to townships
As part of the permit conditions, Council must be notified for each intent to burn. This is made easier by our new system which alerts Council and the public of prescribed burn-offs happening nearby (bit.ly/CCBurn-offs) ✅
Council encourages the community to check this system before contacting emergency services about a fire 👀
Permits must be obtained at the Kadina Council Office. For more information, visit bit.ly/ConditionalPermit 🖱️ ... See moreSee less

👷PORT HUGHES BOAT RAMP DREDGING👷
Council wishes to advise dredging works will be commencing from Monday, 22 February until Friday, 5 March 2021 (weather permitting) ⛏️
These works are being carried out in line with Council’s licence from the Environment Protection Authority in an effort to give boat users easier access to the water 🛥️
The boat ramp will remain open as usual, however, there may be delays to access the ramp 🕒
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and will try to minimise the impact on users 🙂 ... See moreSee less
I haven't been able to launch or retrieve at the new ramp in anything under a .5 low. This also prevents emergency rescue services using it. Hope it's dredged a bit deeper this time for safety sake.
Michael Coppe - Way overdue! Let's hope they do a better job than last time!
Ryan Smart finally
Frank Fontanelli Gino Petruzzella
Can the ramp still be used while being dredged
All the money spent on the new ramp and it is a disaster
Just build it properly from the beginning.
And that surprises you why!
Is the whole basin being dredged or just the entry between the breakwaters 🤔 The weed build up within the basin is becoming dangerous, many boats having to clear the weed from their water intakes from their motors 😳😳 should there be damage to our property in anyway ,is the Copper Coast Council going to pay for repairs🤔🤔
It needs to be “dredged” not “excavated” the council is only excavating the ramp unfortunately.
Good work building that ramp 😂😂 heard nothing but bad reviews about it!!
it needs to be filled in and put the ramp in deeper water
AGAIN is that all they do is dredge that place i thoght the new boat ramp and all the money spent was ment to fix that problem just a bunch of muppets
Poorly designed from day one. No consultation with those who actually use the ramp regularly not just day trippers.
You think with all the money the council rip's off the ratepayer this would have been built properly from the beginning!

MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER - MAJOR UPGRADE OF BAY ROAD, MOONTA TO COMMENCE
Extensive consultation was undertaken regarding the upgrade of Bay Road from Moonta to Moonta Bay. Works are scheduled to commence in late February, with actual ground works starting on Monday, 1st March 2021. Council considered the tenders received for the major upgrade on the 10th February 2021. We then had to wait for the two businesses awarded to sign the contract documents and the unsuccessful tenderers to be advised. This occurred on the 16th February. Information on the Bay Road Upgrade is now being provided two days later.
• Consultation entitled – “Your Bay Road Wish List, Be Part of the Big Picture” commenced on the 11th April 2019 and closed on the 17th May 2019. This involved VMS Boards, Facebook posts, and an advertisement in the Yorke Peninsula Country Times. A total of 315 comments were received from the public. Some of the major feedback received included bike lanes, walking paths, underground powerlines, a median strip with trees and stormwater/kerbing.
• Council also met with a range of organisations in Moonta from the 21st to 24th October 2019 to obtain their views – Copper Coast Residents and Ratepayers, Moonta Lions Club, Friends of Port Hughes, Moonta and District Progress Association and the Moonta National Trust.
• Council also sent letters to all residents of Bay Road inviting them to public information sessions on the 23rd and 24th October 2019 at the Moonta Town Hall Supper Room to receive feedback and comments.
• A presentation was made by the then Director of Infrastructure on the 23rd October 2019 on the consultation undertaken, feedback received and the various options for Bay Road. A report was submitted to Council on the 6th November 2019 outlining the feedback received incorporated into the design of the works.
• Council obtained an opinion from Greenhill Engineers Pty Ltd on the probable construction costs of the major upgrade of Bay Road. This was estimated at $10.987M. This was reported to the March 2020 Council meeting, together with a detailed design for the major upgrade of Bay Road, Moonta.
• Extensive tender documentation was then prepared and tenders were called in September 2020. Tenders closed on the 26th October and four tenders were received ranging from $5.794M to $10.327M. The tenders called were for 3 Stages of Bay Road. The tenders were thoroughly assessed by a panel of four, including an independent person from Local Government Procurement. The assessment also involved obtaining clarification on pricing submitted at least six times. By undertaking this, the final price accepted was over $1.3M less.
• Following the assessment of the tenders received, the contract has been awarded to CME Civil to undertake stormwater drainage works for $3.091M and Downer EDI to undertake the roadworks, sealing and other associated works at a cost of $2.831M.
• The project is funded as follows:-
• Stage 1
• Federal Local Roads & Community Infrastructure - $172,199
• Federal Local Roads & Community Infrastructure - $475,000
• Council Contribution 2021/22 - $674,801
• Stages 2 & 3
• Council Low Interest Loan - $2M
• State Government Local Government Infrastructure
• Partnership Program (still to be approved) - $2.189M
• Council contribution 2021/22 - $411,579
• Stage 1 is from Robert Street to Kitto Road, Stage 2 from Kitto Road to Hughes Avenue and Stage 3 from Hughes Avenue to the end of Bay Road.
• The project is also subject to weather conditions and any delays that may be experienced from finding rock and dewatering.
• Council also applied to the State Power Line Environment Committee (PLEC) for funding of the undergrounding of power lines for the whole of Bay Road from Moonta to Moonta Bay. The undergrounding of electricity lines is in 6 stages and PLEC have approved Stage 1 and Stage 6. Stage 1 undergrounding is from Caroline Street to George Street and Stage 2 from Bowden Street to the end of Bay Road, Moonta Bay. Council will receive $970,400 and will contribute $485,200 for these works. These works will be scheduled to be undertaken in accordance with PLEC requirements in 2022/23. These works do not impact on the major upgrade of Bay Road. Council will also apply for funding of Stages 2 to 5 this year for further undergrounding of electricity.
• We will also be appointing a Project Superintendent who will oversee all of the works undertaken. The works will be inspected and required to meet all contractual obligations, relevant Australian Standards and requirements. Should this not be undertaken, the Superintendent will stop works, have the authority for works to be redone and invoices for works will not be paid until all works have been undertaken in accordance with the contract and Standards. We will also have a Council Project Manager that any resident or person can phone regarding the works being undertaken. Details will be provided shortly.
• Public information sessions are intended to be held at the Moonta Town Hall for each of the 3 Stages, with any interested residents welcome. A separate briefing will also be provided to all of the Moonta organisations, so that residents of Bay Road and organisations are aware of the construction details of the project. Letters have been sent to all residents of Bay Road and organisations for this.
• Further updates will also be provided to the residents of Bay Road as works progress, as well as Moonta organisations and the general public.
• Council would ask for your patience and understanding as the work progresses. We will be trying to minimise any inconvenience, particularly for residents of Bay Road as works are undertaken.

Finally good news, about time. Fingers crossed all goes well and the outcome is what everyone wants and works most importantly.
Thanks for the info. I wish other local councils would be this transparent in their posts.
Owen Ando Andersen
Fab update CCC cheers
So all of the new surface will be completed then some bright spark will decide a trench will need to be dug from one side to the other and stuff the surface up. Its like clock work.
Just resurface the roads PROPERLY and plant big trees, tis all Moonta requires. No fancy town needed here, Kadina is a huge stuff up as it is now.
Finally hope it all goes to plan it really needs it.
Great information As already written let’s hope bits of the road not dug up to lay cables etc AFTER the new road is done Every thing should be done prior to new road being laid
Have you still got the unwanted, stupid 4 metre medium strip in the design
This is first time our Council has provided very detail such important project in our community. In my understanding the encouragement offer to ratepayers “have your word to say”also provided to the ratepayers from time to time. Since I have been involved more on public issues, hope when Council seeking this type of public options or ideas, please always remember there are numbers of ratepayers especially elderly residents have less opportunities or physical facilities to involve or express their interests. Perhaps papers submission should be provided in local supermarket which that is the spot everyone will access weekly or fortnight.
Why does the design have a bike lane on the town going side and non on the other plus a walk & ride path and crosses the road where the bike track does now without a break in the median stip great for wheelchair and gophers to negotiate. Eliminate the crossing and keep it on the same side ALL the way to the Bay this will prevent a future FATALITY
Very informative well done
Wasn't it came who did the effluent infrastructure at moonta bay? Hopefully they do a better job with bay road.
