Welcome signage upgrade

Millicent’s historic band rotunda will feature on two new entrance signs on both the northern and southern approaches to the town on the Princes Highway.

The timber and iron structure was erected in the parklands in 1911 and coincidentally has recently undergone a significant lighting and power supply upgrade.

The two existing signs are due for updating and the March monthly meeting of Wattle Range Council endorsed the motion moved by Councillor David Walshaw and seconded by Cr Dennis Muhovics.

The two other choices put to the meeting featured the playground and the giant hand sculpture in “The Domain”.

In reply to a question from Cr Deb Agnew, engineering services director Peter Halton said the rotunda image was the preference of three of the four members of the executive leadership team.

Chief executive Ben Gower said the six persons who appeared in the band rotunda image were all employees of Wattle Range Council.

Cr John Drew said the band rotunda image gave the impression that Millicent was a good place.

However, Cr Sharon Cox preferred the playground image as it gave people a reason to stop in Millicent and would lead to increased patronage for Millicent cafes and other businesses.
