Area Integrated Maintenance program
To help keep our streets clean and safe, Council visits each neighbourhood every 2 years to carry out a series of maintenance works.
- Minor repairs to roads, footpaths, kerbs and channels
- Repairs to damaged street signs
- Cleaning Council stormwater pit entrances
- Removing dumped rubbish
- Removing graffiti from Council buildings and other assets
- Assisting residents to remove graffiti from their properties
This program is in addition to the regular maintenance and repair of assets carried out by Council.
How to get involved
Council welcomes your input on the maintenance priorities in your area.
You can report an issue through the Council website such as a missing street sign, blocked or broken Council stormwater drain or damaged footpath.
When the program is operating in your area, Council asks that you don't park your car on the street so that Council staff have access to kerbs and channels, roads and drains.
When is AIM in my neighbourhood?
Refer to the map below to find your AIM area. You can contact Council to find out when the program is in your area.
Your responsibilities to maintain your property
You can assist Council to keep our streets clean and safe by:
- cutting branches from your property that overhang and obstruct a footpath or laneway and use Council's fortnightly green waste collection to recycle your branches
- mowing the grass on your nature strip or make a drought-resistant nature strip
- removing weeds in footpath cut outs in front of your property
- making sure your house number is visible
- repairing any leaning fences or walls that could injure someone walking by, and
- making sure the stormwater connection from your house to the kerb and channel is unblocked - this is your responsibility and is not part of Council's drainage system.
A survey is sent to a random selection of residents once AIM maintenance works are complete. If you would like to provide feedback, you can contact Council.
