Expressions of Interest for Community Representatives
Wednesday 27 June, 2012
Hornsby Shire Council is seeking expressions of interest from Shire residents interested in participating in its Wellum Bulla Materials Handling Facility Monitoring Committee in a voluntary capacity as a Community Representative.
The Wellum Bulla Materials Handling Facility is located off the Pacific Highway at Mt Kuring-gai.
The facility was established in 1998 by Council to enable the reuse of excavated material generated from the maintenance and improvement of local roads, footpaths and drains within the Shire.
A significant portion of the excavated material is made suitable for re-use in Council's works programs by stockpiling, separating, sorting and sieving the material. Excavated materials such as sand, soil, gravel and profile material are sieved and graded to provide a variety of reusable materials; sieved concrete and asphalt material are sent for reprocessing at an external commercial crushing facility and returned as re-usable material as required.
The facility is managed by Council's Asset Management and Maintenance Branch staff in accordance with an Environmental Management Plan that incorporates the requirements of the Department of Environment and Climate Change and the Department of Primary Industries. The Environmental Management Plan contains extensive environmental safeguards to protect the amenity of the surrounding natural and built environment.
The Wellum Bulla Materials Handling Facility Monitoring Committee consists of four Councillors, five community representatives, two Council staff and an environmental representative. It has been established to overview and monitor the operation of the facility.
The Monitoring Committee meets every four months on site at the facility from 4pm for approximately 1.5 hours and a report is provided to Council.
Your written expression of interest should be addressed to Peter Powell, Manager Asset Management and Maintenance Branch, or emailed to email@example.com. For enquiries, contact Peter Powell on 9847 4803.
Closing date: 31 July 2012
