This Day in History: 2010-12-01

2010 December: The Shire of Toodyay proposed to establish a Tidy Towns Committee. Individuals, businesses and community groups keen to participate in promoting the Shire of Toodyay as a neat and sustainable community were encouraged to register their interest. In addition to promoting a positive visual aspect, the Tidy Towns initiative incorporated environmental challenges and considerations, litter control, wildlife habitat preservation and restoration of historical buildings, all which are significant characteristics of the Shire of Toodyay. The Committee would oversee, co-ordinate and report on activities in the Shire and also be the link between community, Shire, the Keep Australia Beautiful Council and the Department of Environmental Protection. Kerry Skinner at the Shire of Toodyay was the staff member to contact.
