LETS ALL MAKE SOUTH CAIRNS ‘THE BEST’ PLACE TO LIVE!
Southside Councillor Rob Pyne has called on residents to help lift the appearance of our suburbs by using the online services offered by many agencies that operate in our area.
Cr. Pyne said, “It often said ‘the squeaky wheel gets the oil’ and there is a lot of truth to that. When legitimate requests are made, that does count! The internet makes lodging requests with Council and other agencies easier than ever before! Residents can either get online, or phone the agencies listed below to make a service request.
DROP COUNCIL A LINE
Do you see pot-holes in suburban roads, blocked drains, damaged pathways or graffiti on bus stops?
You can lodge a service request at http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/home/contact-us-online/report-a-problem. Other areas Cairns Regional Council may be able to help include wandering dogs, abandoned vehicles and overgrown properties.
Those without the internet can ring Council on 4044 3044 and lodge a service request (keep a receipt no.)
Is a street light out in your street?
Is there Ergon infrastructure in your area that has been damaged or that has graffiti on it?
You can lodge a service request with Ergon at https://www.ergon.com.au/about-us/contact-us/contact-form Also email Ergon (non urgent matters) on Customer.Feedback@ergon.com.au Either way, you can print up a copy of your issue, should you need to chase it up at a later date!
