invasive pests are reduced across the entire region.

encourages even more landholders to take part and I urge all landholders to get
their forms in and to also contact Council for advice, assistance or any
feedback where needed.

invasive pests on Council land, so they can be dealt with accordingly.”

time they pay their rates or online via Council’s web page.
