City supports those affected by floods and war

The City will make a donation to assist Ukrainian people and refugees suffering from the war, as well as people affected by the recent floods in Queensland and New South Wales.
It comes after two elected member motions at last night’s Council Meeting to donate $10,000 to each cause.
The Ukrainian flag will also be flown outside the City’s Administration Centre every day for a month and Council will sign a letter to the Ukrainian Embassy expressing the City’s support and condemning the actions of the Russian State.
The donation for the victims of the Australian floods will go directly to the Australian Red Cross’ flood appeal for both states to help support those affected by the recent floods.
Mayor David McMullen said it was important for the City to support those experiencing exceptionally challenging times in extraordinary circumstances.
"These are both devastating events," he said. "We are privileged to be living in a place such as Subiaco that is not directly affected at present by floods or war; and as a Council we are fortunate to have the opportunity and resources to be able to give assistance and support to affected communities, on behalf of our own community."​

The full resolution will be available to view on the website shortly.
