Shocked by tent for san­go­mas

Talk of the Town - - Opinion - FRANK SHORT

I WAS amazed – and some­what shocked – when I saw a large tent pitched on the beach at East Beach car park last Wed­nes­day.

On Fri­day, it was still there. It ap­par­ently was set up for an ini­ti­a­tion cer­e­mony for san­go­mas. They were given per­mis­sion by our mu­nic­i­pal­ity to do this.

The point is, there is a big no­tice at the en­trance to the car park, erected by the same mu­nic­i­pal­ity, stat­ing NO CAMP­ING ON THE BEACH. We also know that the drink­ing of al­co­hol is pro­hib­ited in public places, which the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, and the po­lice, tend to over­look.

Are there two sets of laws op­er­at­ing in this town?

In short, get your act to­gether coun­cil­lors.
