By March 24, 2010March 29th, 2010No Comments

Mayor of Maroondah, Cr Alex Makin, has wished the community a happy and safe Easter holiday period.

“On behalf of my fellow councillors and everyone at Maroondah City Council, I would like to extend best wishes to everyone for the Easter period,” Cr Makin said.

“The Easter holiday provides us with the opportunity to catch up with family and friends and enjoy a few hot cross buns and Easter eggs,” Cr Makin said.

“Many people use this time to take an extended break before the cooler weather sets in. With a high volume of motorists expected on our roads during this period, I urge people to take care and drive with caution,” Cr Makin said.

Cr Makin provided a reminder of Council Opening Hours for the Easter period

Council offices in Braeside Avenue, Ringwood and the Eastland and Croydon Civic Service Centres will be closed on Good Friday (2 April), Saturday 3 April and Easter Monday (5 April). Council’s service centres will also be closed the day after ANZAC Day – Monday 26 April.

The next Council meeting after Easter will be held on Monday 19 April from 7.30pm at the City Offices, Braeside Avenue, Ringwood.

To report after hours emergencies requiring immediate action such as road-based hazards, flooding, fallen trees, a dog roaming/dog attack, or illegal burning off, phone Council on 1300 88 22 33.
