A number of council facilities andservices have been forced back into closing after the state government reimposed stay at home restrictions on a number of suburbs.
In line with the restrictions, the council is temporarily closing facilities such as libraries, neighbourhood houses, playgrounds,skate parks,outdoor exercise equipment areas and barbecue facilities within the suburbs named by the government.
Sporting facilities within the restricted suburbs are also closed and the advice is that people from the restricted suburbs are not able to participate in community sport.
The restrictions are in place for Brimbank postcodes 3038, 3012, 3042 and 302.
Brimbank Mayor Cr Georgina Papafotiou said the council was aiming to provide some of the online services that had been successful in supporting the community during the previous closures.
“We need to support each other during this time. While only some Brimbank suburbs are in the State Government restricted list, we’re asking all community members to follow the advice of the health authorities, to use common sense in any decision making about what you’re doing and where you’re going, and to get tested if they have any symptoms,” Cr Papafotious said.
“The sooner we follow the advice, the sooner we can have these new restrictions lifted.”
Customer service centres are closed across the municipality but further information can be found at www.brimbank.vic.gov.au or by calling 9249 4000.
