Coun­cil ac­cepts clean-up costs

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

COTTES­LOE Coun­cil will spend an ex­tra $24,000 to clean its con­tentious pub­lic toi­lets un­der the In­di­ana Restau­rant for four months from De­cem­ber 1.

Af­ter last week’s meet­ing was closed to the pub­lic, coun­cil­lors de­cided to take the money from the bud­get and tackle long-stand­ing pub­lic and Cottes­loe Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion com­plaints about the un­clean fa­cil­i­ties.

Restau­rant leasee Re­drock Ltd will con­trib­ute $16,000 to the four-month clean­ing regime, in ad­di­tion to be­ing re­quired to clean the toi­lets for any pri­vate func­tions held at the restau­rant.

The com­pany will also be re­quired to con­tinue gen­eral main­te­nance of the fa­cil­i­ties.

Cottes­loe Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Yvonne Hart wel­comed the coun­cil’s de­ci­sion.

“But they are do­ing a job which is the leasee’s re­spon­si­bil­ity,” Ms Hart said.
