2020 will be another great year for the City of Bunbury as we, in collaboration with the state and federal governments and the private sector, build on the efforts of previous years.
2019 has seemingly flown by and reflecting on the significant achievements by the city team and the private sector, it is easy to see how productive and busy the year has been.
The pace of change is relentless, and our physical landscape will continue to change with the additional developments and improvements the city and the private sector has planned for delivery in 2020.
Social and mental health challenges will remain and, hopefully, a whole of community effort can be directed to reducing or eliminating them.
Treasure every moment you have, take care of your physical and mental well-being, look after those you care about, focus on what is right and beautiful and avoid negativity.
Life is just too short for anything else.
On behalf of myself and First Lady Robyn, Happy New Year.
City of Bunbury mayor Gary Brennan.
