The Kimba community will have their say, following the District Council announcing dates for the previously delayed National Radioactive Waste Management Facility Ballot.
While the judgment was favourably received by the Council in Court in July it has been appealed, Mayor Dean Johnson said that there was no legal obstruction to the ballot proceeding to determine the level of community support as part of the overall site selection process, however Council’s position has always been to facilitate the ballot so our community could have its voice heard.
Applications from eligible ratepayers and resident will begin as of tomorrow August 23rd until Midday September 13th.
Mayor Johnson says that people on the South Australian House of Assembly roll for the Kimba local government area will be automatically eligible to vote in the ballot.
However, if you’re not eligible to be on the roll - but live in, or own rateable property in Kimba or the district, contact the Kimba council to assess your eligibility.
Held on behalf of the Minister for Resources and Northern Australia, ballot papers will be posted to eligible electors on October 3rd.
With completed Ballots to be received for counting by the Australian Electoral Commission by 10am Thursday, November 7th
