CITY OF BAYSWATER


New CCTV coverage for Noranda



Fighting against rate increases



Great news for pensioners & seniors

Community Newsletter
As one of your City of Bayswater councillors,
I wanted to provide you with an update on
what I’ve been working on since I was elected
to represent you in late 2015.
In addition to being open and accessible to help with
issues residents and business-owners face in dealing
with the City, my three key priorities have been:

1.
2.
3.

GREAT NEWS FOR

PENSIONERS & SENIORS!
Last month your Council decided to take an in-depth
look at how we can provide more relief for the many
thousands of pensioners and seniors paying rates in
Bayswater. After recent attacks on pensioners and
seniors from the State and Federal governments, we
need to do all we can to help with the cost of living.

Keeping the administration accountable by
calling out wasteful spending and rejecting
budgets with high rate increases,

Getting this issue front and centre with your local
council was one of my main election promises in 2015.
We’re a step away from this being reality. During the
final budget process in June we’ll see a decision made
on the amount and details. Stay tuned!

Fighting hard to see that your local
council remains focused on its traditional
roles, by defending common sense and
not backing down on politically correct
issues, and

Lots of credit has to go to my fellow Councillors willing
to prioritise those doing it tough in our community.

Ensuring my promises made to you in my
campaign are given full consideration by
Council.

Hopefully this newsletter provides some
information you find useful. If there’s anything
you want to discuss further, please get in contact
with me by calling 0406 681 432 or by emailing
brent.fleeton@bayswater.wa.gov.au

Great news for dog owners!
With the support of
Council which backed
me on this project, we
allocated a further $20,000
in the 2017/18 Budget to
provide additional drinking
fountains with dog bowls
at the following reserves
(these will be installed by
April 2018):
• Abinger Reserve
• Hampton Square
Reserve
• Upper Bardon Park
Reserve

• Shearn Memorial Park
• Noranda Sporting
Complex
These are in addition to
the drink fountains with
dog bowls which were
installed at the following
sites recently:
• Arbor Park
• Claughton Reserve
• Broun Park
• Strutt Reserve
• Weld Square

My approach to the
Council Budget
At every opportunity I try to
come up with constructive
and innovative ways to reduce
spending so rates and charges
can come down. Ideas such
as reducing the number of
Councillors and administration
staff, scrapping outdated
allowances for Councillors’
clothing, limiting travel, lowering
donation budgets and making
Councillors pay for their own
meals are just some of the things
we should be doing to reduce
costs.
As you can see from this chart,
households have copped huge
increases in a range of costs
over the past few years. Your
Council should be acutely aware
of this and concentrate solely
on efficient delivery of basic
services to reduce costs at every
opportunity. Unfortunately I’ve
had to vote against the first two

BAYSWATER’S
EFFICIENCY
DRIVE
Your Council has
an appetite for
changing the
way we do things.
Old excuses for not
getting things done
are a thing of the
past. Our new CEO,
Mr Andrew Brien, has a huge
task in front of him. Under
Andrew’s direction, the City
is currently undergoing a 12
month bottom-to-top review
of all services and programmes
with a single focus: to make
the City of Bayswater more
efficient.
The savings we find through
this process will help us lower
the burden Council places on
you each year through rate
increases.

$150,000 for new
CCTV cameras in
Noranda

Get

in

touch

During the last Federal Election I
advocated strongly for the Coalition
Government to invest funds to pay
for 22 new CCTV cameras at the
Noranda Sporting Complex and at
Robert Thompson Reserve. You’ll soon
see these installed and in operation.
These assets will be a huge help in our
ongoing fight against crime and antisocial behaviour. Please remember
to always contact Security on 1300
360 333 to report anything untoward
in addition to calling Police for more
urgent assistance.

Make sure you let me know
what’s important to you and
your family by visiting

and leaving your feedback.
