(Question No 951)
Mr Stefaniakasked the Minister for Arts and Heritage, upon notice:
In relation to the Bushfire Memorial:
Can the Minister advise where works are up to with this project;
How much money has been spent on this project. If money has been spent, please provide a breakdown of costs and disbursements;
What is the completion date for this project.
Mr Wood: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
The Government is currently consulting with the community in regard to the proposed Bushfire Memorial.
A Bushfire Memorial Community Consultation Advisory Committee, comprised of government representatives and community members most affected by the fire, has met, and consultants have subsequently been invited to tender for the Bushfire Memorial Community Consultation.
To date $3768 has been spent on the project including photographic documentation of the affected suburbs in the months following the bushfire ($2,000); salvage of a number of household bricks ($500); and storage of a small quantity of fire-affected household items ($1268).
We anticipate that the community consultation will be completed, or near completion, by May 2004. It is likely that the memorial will be completed by the second anniversary of the bushfire.
