All kinds of biking but what about fishing and boating

The Beagle Editor, Bike trails through our natural forest get $9.3 mil from Bushfire Recovery Grants

Andrew Constance our local Member for Bega has announced significant funding in excess of $9.3 million for Bike Paths in Bega and Eurobodalla namely • $ 5,000,000.00 Eurobodalla Shire Council to Complete stage two of the Mogo Adventure Trails Hub and • $ 3,914,356.00 Construction of the Narooma Mountain Bike Trails Hub PLUS • $ 461,625.00 Tathra safer pathways project to upgrade 2.5 kilometres of bike pathways in Tathra.

There is not a single cent into upgrading or improving marine infrastructure like boat ramps, fishing platforms, fish cleaning table or even expanded car parks, BBQ shelters and sites or even the CBD boardwalk and floating pontoons. It appears yet again the Eurobodalla Shire Council Executives have failed to submit any applications for grants under the Bushfire Recovery Funds on behalf of local and visiting families who fish and go boating. However if you a young athletic person with a trail bike it looks as if you will be pampered and provided with trails and even toilets throughout our natural forests. What is it with Eurobodalla that does not appreciate that we are boarded on the east with the world’s best natural seascape to walk along, swim in, boat and fish on. Where is the money?
