‘‘Someone should put a lock on the tap.’’
Brahe said he had rung the council once, but it appeared no action had been taken.
Lewis said residents with ideas could contact the council by email, phone, social media, or by calling into an office.
‘‘This could be anything, including suggestions for signage,’’ he said.
French tourists Stephan Blanchot and Julien David thought the lakefront building was a toilet.
Not a toilet, but a pump station, as tourists discover.
