Time for Councillors to go on a bus tour

The Beagle Editor

Several years ago the Eurobodalla Shire Council did an audit of public toilets in the shire. The toilets are listed as Publicly Owned Assets. They need to be properly maintained and have replacement provisions made. As the local population ages and the area grows in population it’s necessary all public assets are properly maintained and the necessary funding is set aside for not only maintenance and replacement but also for new assets such as “toilet blocks” as they are required in growing areas of the shire and also required to properly cater for tourist movements.

Proper signage showing where they are located is also important particularly for tourist movements and long vehicles, cars and caravans etc.

Demolishing essential public amenity’s such as the toilet block at Albert Ryan Park is the easy way out for poor management practices and very poor economic rationalism attitudes . Some of the most recently provided new toilet blocks are of cheap construction and very poorly maintained, broken door latches is common.

Councillors need to personally inspect some of the public toilet block assets and take particular notice of the areas where they are located for all access requirements, and an aging population . In fact it’s about time all the Councillors made a tour of the shire together to see what’s going on so they can properly represent the shires residents. Allan Brown
