Central Tilba footpaths under discussion

Phillip Elton, representing the Tilba Chamber of Commerce spoke at the Council meeting of June 27th, 2017 on the issue of footpaths in Central Tilba He was addressing the Footpath Strategy agenda item asking for consideration of more than the $20,000 that had been allocated by Council to Central Tilba path works. Mr Elton was very clear in his descriptions of an inferior path on the western side of Bate Street between the Leatherworks and the Tea Shop near the general store advising that the pavers presented a slip risk and that the driveways were also a hazard. Councillor Constable observed that damp pavers were twice as slippery as concrete with Councillor Brown enquiring if there was any nonslip treatment that could be applied

Director Sharpe took Mr Elton's points on board and has now offered to meet on site with Chamber and business representatives.
