SAFER PLACES AND EVACUATION ZONES: We have had multiple questions in regards to where residents should go if there is a bushfire in our area.

A Bush fire Safer Place, is a place of relative safety where people can go during a bushfire or extreme weather days. These area/locations are decided by the SA Country Fire Service. To see the designated areas for each township within the Copper Coast, please go to www.coppercoast.sa.gov.au/services/fire-prevention/are-you-bushfire-ready

Lastly, the Bushfire Last Resort Refuge within the Copper Coast region is the Paskeville Football Oval.

We hope everyone stays safe during catastrophic conditions tomorrow, and are prepared in case of unforeseen circumstances.

BAY ROAD CONCEPT PLANS ADOPTED: Of the 3 original concept plans for Bay Road and the Frances Terrace intersection, Council has adopted Bay Road Concept option 3, and Bay Road/Frances Terrace Intersection Concept option A.

If you haven't seen the designs in detail and wish to, you can view them at either the Moonta Tourist Office, or the Kadina Council Office. Alternatively, to view the plans in High Resolution, please go to www.coppercoast.sa.gov.au/services/major-projects/bayrd as the pictures are far too big for viewing in detail on Facebook.

The concepts will now progress to the detail stage of the process, where residents will again have the opportunity to comment further on the concepts. There will be more information to come on the date for this consultation session when it is confirmed.

For now, if you have any questions, please contact Dennis Kariuki on 88281200.

Just resurface the road and plant gum trees all the way from one end to the other, turning this place into a show pony, fancy bits n bobs we don't need, wow think you might save MONEY and then actually bitumise the dirt roads around her. Hey, thats a thought.

We spoke with Dennis on Thursday and found him very helpful and informed on the project.

How about you bitumise the dirt roads around Moonta Bay and putting proper curbing and footpaths...

Creating an excellent road for the future will create a wonderful future for the town.

So not putting power underground when you’ve got a great opportunity to do so. Most of the houses have already got underground power. I know you’re all going to say about the cost but I’ve lived on bay road for almost 40 years now and in that time it hasn’t even been resurfaced so it’s time some real money was spent on it and do it properly so it’s good for another 40 years

FOOD SAFETY WEEK - EGG HANDLING: This week (9-16 November) is Australian Food Safety Week and the theme is 'Excellent eggs - handle them safely'.

Eggs are a simple, cost effective and nutritious part of our diet. Handle them safely by following these tips from the Food Safety Information Council:

🥚 Don't buy or use eggs that are cracked or visibly dirty.
🥚 Wash your hands after handling uncooked eggs.
🥚 Store your eggs in the fridge away from ready to eat foods.
🥚 Your eggs will keep best if stored in the carton they came in.
🥚 The elderly, pregnant women, small children and people with poor or compromised immune systems are at serious risk if exposed to food borne illnesses and should not be served uncooked or undercooked egg dishes unless those eggs have been pasteurised.
🥚 If you are going to eat raw egg dishes, prepare just before you are going to eat them and if you need to store the dish, refrigerate it immediately at 5 degrees Celsius or below. Or consider using pasteurised eggs.

More info on handling eggs safely go to 👉 linktr.ee/sahealth_ or to test your food handling knowledge, go to imalert.com.au/v6/?sub=coppercoast #afsw19

In the stores, make certain that you can wiggle each egg in its socket of the egg carton, to make certain it isn't cracked and has stuck to the bottom.

MAKE YOUR PLAN: With recent fires close to home on the YP, Port Lincoln, and continuing across the East Coast, we urge all residents to take extreme care, and take pre-emptive action to ensure that your property is maintained for the Fire Danger Season.

A message from the SA Country Fire Service: As summer progresses and the landscape continues to dry out, growth from winter and spring rains creates an abundance of fuel for bushfires. If you live in, travel through or visit bushfire risk areas it is critical that you recognise the need to have a plan and be prepared. We know the risk is real, we know the consequences can be both devastating and terrifying, so why risk it? Make your 5 Minute Plan today.

REMINDER: 2 FREE 6x4 TRAILER LOADS OF GREEN WASTE REINTRODUCED✅🌳💚: As part of the new waste changes adopted by Council in June, Copper Coast Residents will again be entitled to take 2 FREE 6x4 trailer loads of green waste per financial year to the Resource Recovery Centre at Wallaroo!

In previous years, vouchers were included on the rates notice or in the Copper Post. However, THIS YEAR, we have simplified the process to make it as easy as possible for property owners. You can now either;

(A) Bring in your rates notice, or
(B) Your driver’s license with properties address, and we will keep track of the vouchers on our system.

Below are a few points to help clarify how the free loads of green waste will work for residents:
• If you have organised someone to do the works, there needs to be something in writing (i.e. a gardener delivering on behalf of residents)
• Cannot be a copy of rates notice, must be the ORIGINAL
• Renters need to have permission from the owner, however, driver’s license with property address will be sufficient
• 2 6x4 trailer loads of green waste per financial year (the 2 loads apply per property, so, if a person owns say 2 properties, he/she will get two free loads for each of the properties)

Resource Recovery Centre opening times:
• Monday - Friday 10.30am – 3.00pm
• Weekends 10am – 2.00pm ❗️As of June 2019❗️

This is a great idea but I also think you should allow 1-2 free normal dump trips too. It will majorly reduce the amount of illegal dumping we have it costs a fortune for just one trailer load these days and a lot of people can’t afford that. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Hi Vicki Kendall, the Communities feedback can be found at Appendix 15, page 123-125 (of Appendices 1 - 17inc) and the report on page 63-67 of the Agenda :)

Money can be better spent than on roundabouts & islands that will destroy the appeal of our or any country town. It will not help with inattentive drives . This is a tourist town & the more it is modernised the less appeal it will have .
