Call coun­cil if you see a safety risk

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WHEN out and about in Childers, mak­ing a quick pit stop into the Mil­len­nium Park pub­lic toi­lets is an ad­ven­ture for many fam­i­lies with young ones in tow.

The park is pop­u­lar with tourists and has plenty of shade and grassed ar­eas to pic­nic on. The tran­quil park also hosts many great events, in­clud­ing the re­cent Twi­light Mar­kets.

But so­cial me­dia lit up last Fri­day when a lo­cal res­i­dent posted a photo of an over­flow­ing sharps con­tainer on the wall of the par­ents’ room.

A coun­cil spokesman said staff were made aware of this dis­cus­sion on Face­book, with the in­ci­dent later re­ported through of­fi­cial chan­nels.

The spokesman said the Mil­len­nium Park toi­let fa­cil­ity was cleaned daily and res­i­dents were en­cour­aged to im­me­di­ately re­port safety con­cerns to the coun­cil by phon­ing 1300 883 699.

“Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to im­me­di­ately re­port any con­cerns of this na­ture to coun­cil as the safe dis­posal of sy­ringes is dealt with as a mat­ter of pri­or­ity,” he said.
