UPDATE FROM AURORA ENERGY REGARDING POWER OUTAGE
Wednesday night’s power outage in Glenorchy was caused by a car hitting a pole in Bob’s Cove. The power stayed on after being hit but the pole had to be changed immediately for safety reasons. The crew needed 2-3 hrs to change the pole. We made the decision to focus on changing the damaged pole rather than splitting up the line crews to do switching to allow the generator to run. For us, this reinforces the discussion we had at the community meeting regarding automating several switches in the Glenorchy area and remote controlling the generator. We look forward to continuing to work with the Glenorchy Community.

GLENORCHY GOLF CLUB
Glenorchy Golf Club Honesty box Robbed.
It’s with great sadness that I feel that the community should know that we have a thief in town. The honesty box at the golf club was again broken into last night,( the second time in 2 months) . The incident must of taken place after 6 pm as I personally saw in tact at that time, when the netballers were arriving for training. Although it isn’t the toughest of padlocks, a tool such as a jimmy bar must have been required, so I can only presume it was a local not a tourist.
If anybody has any information, I’d like to hear from you,
