Last chance to swim

Pool patrons have until 6.00pm on Monday 12 March to enjoy outdoor pools at Castlemaine, Harcourt, Newstead and Maldon before they close for the season. If you'd like to share your feedback about the pool pick up a survey from pool kiosks or complete online at the Have Your Say section of Council’s website.

Butts Reserve update

Council has handed over the management of facilities at Butts Reserve in Maldon to Parks Victoria as the responsible land manager. As a reminder Parks Victoria has a ‘carry in, carry out policy’ regarding rubbish. This means bins will be removed and visitors to the reserve must take their rubbish home or to a nearby transfer station for disposal or recycling. This policy helps protect the environment by reducing the amount of rubbish left in parks and reserves.
