You may have heard that today the Premier said that the proposed increase to vehicle registration fees may not proceed if there was a significant level of objection from the electorate.
This increase would affect everyone but would have more impact on farmers and those on fixed incomes.

For Lake Clifton residents:

There has been a good response to our offer of free attractant to help control Mediterranean fruit fly but we need more people to help themselves and others with this dreadful pest. The Department of Agriculture (DAFWA) says that without control, it would infest 100% of stone fruit. Just bring a container and pick up some Flavex at the hall on Saturday 15 November or 6 December between 0930 and 1130 or phone 0407 175 564 any time. This is free for members of LCHPSA; non-members will be charged $2.
