What’s the fuss about play­ing by the rules?

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

Dear Coun­cil,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you for your hard work and re­mark­able ser­vice.

A few days ago we re­ported a tree that had fallen block­ing our drive­way & street. We live in For­est Creek and within 25 min­utes of re­port­ing it, it was cut and cleared...amaz­ing.

We then had, what we were lead to be­lieve by lo­cals, the daunt­ing task (that would take months we were told) of ap­ply­ing to coun­cil for a per­mit to re­move high risk pro­tected veg­e­ta­tion threat­en­ing our home.

Within a day of re­ceiv­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion we were con­tacted by the lovely Liz Leonard, an in­spec­tion was or­gan­ised a mere three days later where I met the very in­for­ma­tive and fair Gary Aylet and a per­mit granted a mere two days af­ter that! I dont know what all the fuss is about. Every­time I do the right thing and ap­ply for per­mits and deal with coun­cil noth­ing is ever a prob­lem.
