Ratepay­ers group con­tin­ues to press for dump point

Alpine Observer - - Bright Hot Rods -

IT’S with a heavy heart that I had to ac­cept Lorry Tor­riero’s res­ig­na­tion as trea­surer.

Lorry has been a de­voted mem­ber giv­ing so much of his time and en­ergy to the Bright com­mu­nity.

We wish him well as he re­tires from BaDRA to hope­fully en­joy more of his gar­den and time for fam­ily.

The RV dump point is still on our agenda.

We have a pe­ti­tion with more than 2000 sig­na­tures to give to Alpine Shire Coun­cil, re­mind­ing the coun­cil that plumb­ing fa­cil­i­ties have al­ready been in­stalled as part of the Pi­o­neer Park re­con­struc­tion, and could be eas­ily com­pleted us­ing free CMCA Dump Point Sump Point cover.

We con­sider our­selves a premium tourist des­ti­na­tion and yet we do not have the ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture that so many other des­ti­na­tions con­sider to be a min­i­mum.

It is not ac­cept­able that such a ba­sic fa­cil­ity is sub­ject to the whims of car­a­van park man­agers for ac­cess.

There have been a num­ber of peo­ple who have writ­ten to the Times-Ob­server ask­ing why the Alpine coun­cil does not have this nec­es­sary in­fra­struc­ture to sup­port this very large tourist re­quire­ment (Au­gust 2, 2017.)

Please con­tact our coun­cil­lors, whose job it is to rep­re­sent us and what we want.

BaDRA has made a sub­mis­sion about the park­ing is­sues in Bright.

We will con­tinue to mon­i­tor the progress as the coun­cil works it out and will keep you in­formed.

The com­plaints about Pore­punkah Ni­chol­son Street re­de­vel­op­ment is­sue com­plaints have gen­er­ated a few wins al­though we are wait­ing to see the al­ter­ations that we’ve been told will be made.

Al­though mon­i­tor­ing is the way that the coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer has an­swered for any fur­ther changes to be made, we are at a stale­mate to get the nec­es­sary historical data to back this up.

We will con­tinue to work on this and ask for the pub­lic to re­main dili­gent and send in pho­to­graphs or make com­ments to our coun­cil­lors and to coun­cil as­sets di­rec­tor Will Jeremy about the prob­lems that you see there.

Our an­nual meet­ing is sched­uled for Tues­day (Novem­ber 21) at 7.30pm at the Bright Bowls Club and we would love to see you all there.

We all have lots of work to do so look for­ward to sup­port.

If you have any ques­tions or sug­ges­tions please tele­phone me on 5756 2050.
