2.     Rubbish bins:

       The actions taken to date were noted, but it was also noted disappointingly that there has
       not been an apparent improvement in the behaviours of many shopkeepers in relation to
       leaving their bins on the street. It was agreed that a further round of letters would be sent
       to the shopkeepers in the Warragul CBD advising that sanctions will be taken if behaviour                           End December
       doesn’t change.                                                                                 Tim Frederico       2009

3.    Smith Street traffic flows:

      It was noted that the action is complete in relation to this. That is, that the Council has
      completed the consultation with the community and has taken a decision to install
      pedestrian facilities in Smith Street. The meeting noted that those facilities are scheduled
      for installation in January 2010 to avoid conflict with the Christmas business period. At the
      request of the representatives of the Warragul Business Group, it is recorded that the
      decision by the Council to include pedestrian crossings within the roundabouts is not           No action
      consistent with the submission of the Warragul Business Group.                                  required

                                                                                                      BBSC (to

5.    Tourist information centre:

      There was some discussion around the notes that had been prepared in response to this
      item at the last meeting, with the outcome that the Warragul Business Group would value
      a relevant member of staff being able to attend a WBG Executive Meeting to discuss these        WBG (to send        Prior to 20
      matters. That meeting is scheduled for 20 January 2010.                                         invitation)         January 2010
6.    Undeveloped sites, possibility of converting to parking:

      The meeting was advised that the possibilities of this are being investigated but that under
      current understanding the parking demand and the cost involved both in developing the
      undeveloped sites and securing access to them, that it is unlikely to be a viable proposal in
      the foreseeable future. It was noted by the meeting that there may be periods when the
      demand on parking is higher than that which has been identified in the surveys that have
      been undertaken. It was agreed that the Shire will continue to monitor car parking                                  End January
      occupancy rates.                                                                                Jyoti Ghosh         2010
