MEDIA RELEASE

Street maintenance is to be stepped up around Hunters Hill with additional resources devoted to street sweeping services.

Hunter’s Hill Council at its meeting tonight (Monday 21 February, 2022) resolved to dedicate additional funding to Council’s street sweeping service.

This will include increasing the hours of service and adding additional resources to clear behind vehicles parked on streets.

Additional sweeping is to occur around shopping strips, priority streets and car parks during peak periods for trees dropping leaves.

It follows community feedback raising concern about the amount of leaf litter in gutters and on the roads.

A Council report said additional street sweeping would also reduce leaf litter and other waste from entering the stormwater system.

Council will also seek nominations for community representatives for advisory and steering committees, following the adoption tonight of a structure for these committees and determination of Councillor membership.

A number of committees will be established for this term of Council, providing opportunities for community members to join with Councillors in making recommendations to the whole of Council on key subject areas.

Following local government elections, Councils are required to adopt any committees of Council, including determining councillor and community membership.

Councillors also tonight recognised the dedication and achievements of the late Dr Joan Croll AO and the late Margaret Ann (Meg) Marshall, both of whom passed away in February.

Dr Croll was a well-respected member of the Hunters Hill community, in both her professional and personal lives as a former breast physician and radiologist and conservation activist.

As part of the all-female group ‘Battlers for Kelly’s Bush’, Dr Croll and others campaigned to protect Kelly’s Bush from a housing development in the early 1970s.

Meg Marshall served as an officer of Hunter’s Hill Council, from 1967 to 1994, with most of that time spent as the personal secretary to the Town Clerk.

She was a highly respected member of the Hunters Hill community contributing her time through various organisations including the Hunters Hill Historical Society, Hunters Hill Probus, Hunters Hill Respite Care, and the Anglican Parish of Hunters Hill.

She was recognised for that service by being named Hunters Hill Citizen of the Year on Australia Day 2014 for her valuable contribution to the community.
