VOTING CENTRES on Saturday 22nd of October 2016
Today is a great day for the City of Port Phillip as we introduce a smoke-free environment at all Council owned and operated buildings, doorways and surrounding grounds. Scientific evidence has established that there is no safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke. Only 100% smoke-free environments provide effective protection.
31 May 2014 (World No Tobacco Day) became the day when we officially removed all ashtrays from Council owned and run buildings, including town halls, libraries, community centres and the Depot. You will notice the installation of new signage, which informs staff, our visitors and community of the smoke free boundaries.
As part of this initiative, businesses with footpath trading permits have been offered the opportunity to voluntarily become smoke-free. A number of local businesses have already submitted their applications and others have made enquiries about switching to smoke free trading. These early applications are a positive sign that this policy is supported by the business community.
Let me know what you think about this?
The Australian National flags were lowered and the Rainbow flags raised at 8 am Tuesday 28th January at all three City of Port Phillip town halls. The Rainbow flags will remain in place until 8 am Monday morning 3 February in support of the GLBTI community leading up to Pride March on Sunday afternoon.
The Pride March is a wonderful way to celebrate the diversity that makes our municipality such a vibrant, inclusive place to live and work and we look forward to residents and visitors coming along to celebrate with us.
The City of Port Phillip is a major sponsor of Pride March and has been for 19 years and the flags have been a part of that tradition.
The Australian flag was lowered in compliance with the City of Port Phillip flag protocol. The Australian national flag is flown at mast head from the highest flagpole on every day of the year from the St Kilda, South Melbourne and Port Melbourne Town Halls in accordance with the Flag Act 1953, with the exceptions of Pride March, NAIDOC week and Sorry Day.
Today, I was lucky to participate in the High tea celebration of 25 years of South Port Day Links(SPDL). A wonderful and inspiring organisation that helps make life better for so many people who are elderly or disabled. Just this year, 400 members of the community have been helped by SPDL volunteers involving over 1,100 trips in cars to medical help, shopping and recreational activities.
It is important that we all work with others to strengthen services that enable older people to stay at home and to provide more relevant, accessible and affordable services to those living with disabilities. This includes the other great initiatives that connect people through gardening, exercise, or caring for pets. Above all it is always about developing strong friendships.
The latest initiative is to raise money for a new car. If you are in a position to donate (tax deductable) contact SPDL on 9646 6362 for details.
The Assist centre will be closed for a few days from Monday to make way for a few improvements and the introduction of self serve library checkouts. I will post some photos when the changes are completed.
For bill paying, permits etc please either go online to http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au or to an alternative Assist desk at South Melbourne or St Kilda Town Hall.
