Many residents are requesting to place bows on street trees during the Christmas season. At Charles Sturt, we are happy to see bows being placed on street trees ensuring that bows are attached to the trees by either tying the ribbon or taping only and no damage is inflicted on the tree in the process of attaching the bows (no nails, staples etc).
Please ensure bows are removed from the trees by no later than 10 January. Your cooperation in adhering to the conditions would be greatly appeciated. For further information please contact 8408 1198.

working for you.
At the 2013 Safe Works Awards in November, Charles Sturt won the Best Solution to an Identified Workplace Health and Safety Issue Award for its Prototype Asphalt Patching Vehicle. You can view a short video about this project here.
The Asphalt truck was scheduled for replacement and we created a new truck which reduces the impact on staff and the number of staff needed. The new truck also increases productivity so we can be efficient in the way we patch our roads. For more information on the award or the Asphalt Patching Vehicle, contact Customer Service on 8408 1111.
Council’s Environmental Plan (Towards One Planet Living 2008-2013) is in its final stages and is due to be replaced with new directions to guide Council in environmental management. In this early stage of consultation we are seeking feedback on what issues and actions are important to our community.

The Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure have advised an aquatic activity licence may be granted to Council in an effort to increase the safety for swimmers using beaches in Councils most heavily used areas. The trial, which is proposed to run from 1 December 2013 to 31 March 2014 will restrict jet skis operating within 200m of the shoreline just between Grange Road and the River Torrens Outlet at Henley Beach South.
We are seeking community feedback during the trial period. Do you think the trial has been successful? Have your say at http://yoursaycharlessturt.com.au. Consultation closes 31 March.
