Hanan joins wa­ter group

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

ROBERT Hanan might be for­given for rais­ing a glass to cel­e­brate his ap­point­ment to the Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Wa­ter Ref­er­ence Group yes­ter­day. “Not Port Dou­glas wa­ter, though,” Mr Hanan said. The new Whyan­beel rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the wa­ter ref­er­ence group, Mr Hanan said he ap­pre­ci­ated the chem­i­cal-free wa­ter he con­tin­ues to drink while the res­i­dents of Port Dou­glas and Moss­man have chlo­rine and soon flu­o­ride added to theirs. One of the fiercest crit­ics of Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil’s han­dling of wa­ter in the for­mer Dou­glas Shire, Mr Hanan will be join­ing fel­low Friends of Dou­glas Shire spokesman Michael Gabour on the panel. In a to­tally un­re­lated move, the next meet­ing of the ref­er­ence group was again post­poned un­til Oc­to­ber. Coun­cil will how­ever de­cide to­day which of the three short­listed con­sul­tants will be given the con­tract to de­sign the lon­gawaited chlo­rine-free trial for Moss­man.
