New lights set to brighten Stringybark Road

As many of you may know, I have been extremely passionate about upgrading the lighting along Stringybark Road given the high number of people using this key link between Buderim and the University, particularly during the evenings. Whilst lighting this area will make it much safer at night time, I am also hoping to push for the upgrades of pedestrian and cycling facilities to further improve safety and access to our local area. Work is scheduled to start late September, with installation expected to be completed by late October. As always I appreciate your patience and co-operation during construction.

Be storm ready

When severe weather is approaching, flood waters are starting to rise or there’s another type of disaster on the Sunshine Coast, Sunshine Coast Council aims to provide important alerts to the community as quickly as possible. That’s why council has made it even easier to get the alerts you need, straight to your phone or tablet, with its CoastAlert notification service. The push notifications, linked to information on council’s award-winning Disaster Hub website, are a new feature of council’s SCCApp. To receive the alerts, simply download the SCCApp from the AppStore or Google Play and emergency notifications will be automatically sent to your smartphone and any other mobile devices with the app installed.

Pet registration

Now is the time to register your furry friends. Cat and dog owners started receiving their annual animal registration renewal notices in the mail last week. Renewal is due by September 30. This is also a good time to update your pet’s details if they have changed.
