Dear Residents

Welcome to the Melton Rural North Priorities Update for January 2022. This month PC Daley started his 3 week standard driving course, with one week left to go, this will give him the capability to respond on an emergency basis. I have no doubt he will be able to pass, no pressure Dan!. PC Atkinson and I have had the opportunity to work together more and have been out with the speed gun stopping motorists and issuing traffic offence reports and offering advice. We are hoping to work together like this more often.
