I READ with interest the article regarding the sand erosion at Woodgate Beach. There appears to be no money available for this very necessary work. One wonders why in view of the amount of rates paid by Woodgate residents. The comment was made that no council infrastructure was under threat. Of course not, there is very little council infrastructure at Woodgate, the forgotten beach. Imagine my surprise on reading the next day’s paper to find this same council has found money to fix a Bargara park because the poor thing is looking “tired”.
...spend that huge amount of money more wisely
The sum of $1.5 million was quoted the day after. Is this some sort of joke? For me personally, Christensen Park is fine just the way it is. Sure, add some more picnic tables, but spend that huge amount of money more wisely. I would like to suggest the only thing “tired” in this story is some of our councillors. Perhaps it’s time for a change. And I don’t mean at Christensen Park. L. CHRISTENSEN Norville
