Power Price Parity

The Council in partnership with Flinders Council commissioned the Bass Strait Island Electricity Supply - July 2004 report to investigate issues associated with the electricity supply. Power price parity for the Bass Strait Island's has been an issue for a number of years and is included within the Partnership Agreement with the State Government. Power price parity also features prominently in the Strategic Plan 2004-2009. This report was presented to the Premier in August 2004 and a copy provided to Hydro Tasmania. The Council is progressing the issues with Hydro Tasmania and will continue to advocate the power price parity issue with the State Government.

Do You Have Unwanted Chemicals on your Property?

We all want a cleaner, safer environment to live in. The disposal of unwanted toxic chemicals can impact detrimentally upon the environment and public health. The community on King Island have an opportunity to dispose of these unwanted chemicals from agricultural and commercial livestock production. ChemClear is a national industry funded initiative designed as a cost effective way to collect and dispose of unused and unwanted currently registered chemicals. Any formulation is accepted, including flowables, granules and powder consistencies.
