Wednesday, November 11th, 2009 - City of Cockburn
COCKBURN Mayor Logan K Howlett has welcomed the State Government announcement that the infill sewerage program for Spearwood is back on track, stating that people power and commonsense had finally prevailed.

He congratulated Water Minister Graham Jacobs for moving to re-establish the program for City of Cockburn residents, following his visit to Spearwood and Coogee in July and continual lobbying from interested parties.

“The biggest accolades go to the residents who took up this challenge with the support and leadership of the Spearwood Community Association,†Mayor Howlett said.

“John Cunai, Len Glamuzina, Carol Taylor, David Mirco, Mary Jenkins and Tony and Franca Fedele, along with many others, continued lobbying with a passion when all appeared lost.â€

Mayor Howlett also thanked the Member for South Metropolitan Phil Edman, Member for Jandakot Joe Francis and Member for Cockburn Fran Logan for providing the local political will and lobbying that gave the community confidence things would eventually happen.

“All that is needed now is the arrival of contractors on site to finish the job that many have been waiting for 40 years to occur,†he said. “It’s a great outcome for our community.â€
