Council yet to commit to fireworks

03 Feb 2010

The City of Melbourne is yet to commit to next year’s 9.15pm New Year’s Eve fireworks.

The Lord Mayor, Cr Robert Doyle, told Docklands News that the council was currently “debriefing and reviewing” the event.

“Once we have fully evaluated the new event format, pre-planning phase for this year’s event will begin and will include a decision as to the locations for both the 9.15pm and midnight fireworks displays for the 2010 event,” Cr Doyle said.

The president of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce, Keith Rankin, said the family fireworks were a “huge success”.

“I think it was the best fireworks event to date,” Mr Rankin said.  “There were thousands of people down here and it was terrific for the families who were able to take their kids home earlier.”

“It was a fabulous, fun-filled night, and it was money very well spent,” Mr Rankin said.

Mr Rankin said the Docklands Chamber of Commerce would strongly advocate for the retention of the fireworks next New Year’s Eve.

The president of the Docklands Community Association, Roger Gardner, said the fireworks were well attended and a great time was had by all.  

“Security was well organised, with good police presence and there were few, if any, reports of trouble,” Mr Gardner said.

“We have reported this news to the City Council and Etihad Stadium management who like to get our feedback.”
