All notices are published in local and/or state publications such as the Albany Advertiser, Great Southern Weekender and West Australian.

The John Flynn Placement Program (JFPP) matches medical students from across Australia with rural doctors and communities. 

The students spend two weeks each year over three to four years working alongside a rural doctor, living with community hosts and experiencing the rural lifestyle with their community contact.

A JFPP Host provides accommodation in their home and meals while the student is on their placement. Hosts receive an honorarium of $400 per week. Community Contacts receive an honorarium of $175 per week.

If you are interested in becoming a host or community contact, please get in touch with Laura Humphry at Rural Health West on 08 6389 4500 or email Laura.Humphry@ruralhw.com.au

A review of the Signs on Public Land Policy has been undertaken and a revised draft has been developed.

The objectives of this policy are to:

  • Provide guidance to the public (in particular visiting public) in locating community services and commercial tourism related facilities within the City of Albany through clear and uniform information;
  • Prevent indiscriminate advertising by enabling finite advertising opportunities where they are appropriate to their location and function;
  • Prevent the placement of signs where they could present a hazard to anyone; and
  • Enable authorised persons to undertake compliance and enforcement functions under local laws and legislation in a manner that is consistent and appropriate.

Council is seeking feedback from the community on the draft document prior to its adoption.

The document can be viewed on the City’s website at http://www.albany.wa.gov.au/council/council/public-notices/

or hard copies are available from the North Road offices.
