Councillors will consider new issues and expectations from the community as the council’s local laws is put out for community consultation until April 30.

While many existing laws remained unchanged, improvements and additions were to topics including noxious weeds, fireworks, and waste management to improve the needs of the community and environment.

Macedon Ranges Shire deputy mayor Jennifer Anderson said it was important for the community to be involved in the local laws that were renewed every 10 years.

“Everyone should love where they live and feel safe within their community,” she said.

“Now is the chance to provide your feedback on what will become our own ‘community-specific’ enforceable laws for the next 10 years.”
