Work be­gins on oil palms

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

WORK has be­gun on tidy­ing up the oil palms in Port Dou­glas, ready for Car­ni­vale. CRC Mayor Bob Man­ning last week said the works would hap­pen, al­though it was un­der­stood it was not part of the main­te­nance sched­ule. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing the ten­der the Moss­man and Port Dou­glas Tree Lop­pers got to work on Tues­day, owner Billy Quaid said he was con­fi­dent the work would be fin­ished in time for Car­ni­vale. ‘‘They are the flag­ship of Port Dou­glas and if they look un­tidy it re­flects on the com­mu­nity,’’ he said.
