125th Anniversary Proposed Public Holiday
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is undertaking a Public Impact Assessment to determine if there is community interest and support for a local public holiday on Friday 15 June 2018.
The proposed holiday would coincide with events linked to the 125th anniversary of the discovery of gold in Kalgoorlie-Boulder (14 June 2018) and will support a long weekend of community celebrations surrounding the milestone.
In accordance with the Public and Bank Holidays Act 1972 (the Act), Local Government Authorities (LGA’s) may apply for a substitution of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday in Western Australia for another date of local significance.
Local Governments cannot apply for a public holiday in addition to that of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday, therefore it is intended the City would apply to bring the existing holiday forward from 24 September 2018 to 15 June 2018.
The alternative date would be observed instead of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday observed in the rest of WA, and would be subject to all conditions of a public holiday including penalty rates and employee entitlements.
