Coastal-Burwood Community Board and city council staff were to meet to discuss costings for installing a UV plant in the Bromley sewage treatment plant. It could cost $3000 daily in power charges. For years, Bromley residents have been surrounded by armies of midges during the summer months, in what has been described by board chairwoman Kim Money as being like a “biblical plague.” Bromley resident Janet Profit is one of those who has been pleading for action. She said she did not know the meeting was taking place and was disappointed not to have had any updates from city council staff or board members. Two months ago, city council staff were asked to come back to the board with short and long-term options to try and solve the problem. •Turn to page 3 Just Arrived Pillows & Wall Art Parklands Lotto & Post 60 Queenspark Drive, Parklands Shopping Centre Ph 383 0303 | Like us on Neighbourly & Facebook Mon-Fri 8.30am-5.30pm Wed til 6.30pm Sat 9am-7pm CoMe iN To See The GreAT rANGe Burwood Road Burwood Hospital Magazines & cards | Stationary | Gifts | Mobile Top Up & Sim Cards Travis Wetland Mairehau Road Queenspark Drive BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
