From Cr Andrew Wines
My heart goes out to all Enoggera Ward residents who were affected or have family and friend affected by the recent flood waters close to home in Brisbane and further out throughout Queensland. More than 35 suburbs and 28,000 homes within Brisbane were inundated with flood waters. The cleanup has begun and will continue for some time, I have provided important information below for those residents who would like to pitch in and help, embracing the Queensland spirit.
Thank you all for your continued understanding of disruptions to Council’s Waste Collection Services and the changes to the Kerbside Collections during this period.
