We have been working to ensure that there is a robust Works Request system in place at the shire. We do ask that Works Requests be put in writing, and this can be done at the shire office, via post/fax/email or through our website (which you can access on your smartphone).
It is not a Councillors role to be receiving works request, and as per Council’s Policy, any works requested by a Councillor is treated exactly the same as a request coming into the office, so it is quicker just to come straight to the office!

What happens to your recycling?
Speaking with our recycling contractor, plastics that are 1-2 are being recycled in China and everything else that is not plastic is being recycled in Australia. Currently China has stopped taking plastics that are numbered 3-7. Our contractor is stockpiling these until a solution is found. As this is a problem across Australia, there will hopefully be a local solution developed.
Below is a story from Katanning Landcare. They conducted a tour of our recycling contractors facility.
Fundraising Opportunity – Catering for Council Meetings
Community/Sporting Groups or Individuals are invited to put their names forward for catering for one or more of the 2018 Council Meetings. (If we have a large number of responses then it may mean that some groups/individuals may only be able to cater once and dates are awarded on first in best dressed.) Caterers are asked to provide a main course and dessert for a minimum of 10 people and are paid $32 per head for February through to November. The December Christmas Dinner can be up to $40 per head depending on the menu and expressions of interest are sought for this closer to the date. If you are looking for a little extra income then this is a simple and easy opportunity for local groups to raise funds.
We require caterers for the following meetings:
- 17 May 2018
- 18 October 2018
- 15 November 2018
North Nippering Locality Sign – Download / Check Draft Version
Please see the download link for the North Nippering Historical Locality Sign DRAFT VERSION, it will be 90cm x 60cm in size when printed. I have received some feedback and corrections for the sign, which have been updated, but if you notice additional mistakes or missed information, please let me know by 5pm Wednesday 25th April 2018 so corrections can be made prior to printing.
As a bit of a recap on the project, we are working with the concept of the photos being of settling families, sporting groups and some interesting farm practices and structures. 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.
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.
You are welcome to forward this to anyone who may be interested in a final read.
Don't forget we now have a new history site where you can help by uploading your family photos and information, visit https://www.dumbleyung.wa.gov.au/history
Thank you and have a fantastic day.

The shire will be undertaking cement stabilising on:
- Fence Rd, near the Kulin Shire boundary

Repairs to the flood damage, from over a year ago, are still continuing. So far works have been completed in the Datatine and Bullock Hills areas and are almost completed in the Nippering/North Nippering Areas. They will then head to the Dongolocking area and complete all projects West of the Fence Rd. The contractors will then move to Kukerin to begin works in the Eastern section of the shire. Thank you to everyone for their continued patience while you wait for the damage to be repaired in your area.
