PROJECT BACKGROUND: The Historical Locality Sign project is an initiative of the Shire of Dumbleyung Historical Committee. The aim of this project is to document our history in a way that is also interesting to our future generations and tourists as part of a drive trail.
The concept is for photos being of settling families, sporting groups and some interesting farm practices, structures and facts. We are also documenting all families past and present in the ‘Families’ list. The majority of the sign content has been compiled from previous history publications.
We realise that not all historical information will fit within these guidelines so further stories and family information can now be uploaded by anyone on our new historical forum under the relevant locality herehttps://www.dumbleyung.wa.gov.au/history.

SEE Something? WANT Something? SAY SOMETHING.
We rely on and encourage residents of the shire to report faults, as we don’t have the resources to ensure that every road, building, park and garden in the shire is free from defects. If you see something, please report it keeping in mind the following:
1. Reports are to be made via the shire website: www.dumbleyung.wa.gov.au, or if you don’t have access to a computer, or prefer not to, you can make a report via the front counter of the shire, either in-person, by telephone, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Reports are not to be made to the Manager of Works and Services, staff not working the front counter or any staff member in their private time. We are trying to ensure every works request receives the appropriate response, but if you choose to go outside the process, we may not provide a response.
3. Works requests simply need to report what and where the fault is. If you have further helpful information please include it, but we do not require a story behind the fault. From the report, we can determine the correct treatment and if we require further information, we will get back in touch.
Following your report, we will respond to acknowledge receipt of the report as soon as it is received, and then let you know what action we plan to take within ten days. If applicable, we will then let you know when the work has been carried out.
