Superannuation scheme needs changing
The draft Municipal Fire Management Plan (MFMP) has been endorsed by the City of Greater Bendigo Council and is now available for community comment on the City’s website at www.bendigo.vic.gov.au
City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Alec Sandner said the plan will make citizens better equipped in the event of a fire.
“The MFMP will show people how to take responsibility for their own safety. If everyone does their part, the whole community will be informed and prepared.
“This plan was created to identify fire risks, local issues or concerns and specifies how risks are to be treated and by who. The draft will now go through phase two of the community consultation and the final plan is required to be adopted by Council prior to October, 2012.
“Cooperation and planning will mitigate and manage the impact of fire on communities and the environment,” Cr Sandner said.
Over 200 community surveys were received and the second phase of the plan will involve the information collected from the community to ensure the final plan reflects key stakeholder participation.
“We value the local knowledge and input we have been given and are pleased to see a solid and achievable fire management approach,” said Cr Sandner.
Five information sessions will be organised across the municipality to explain where the data has come from, how it has been used and to gain local input into management strategies. Dates of these sessions will be advertised.
