Letter to the Editor - August 12: Secure foreshores funds
CONGRATULATIONS to the Big Banana for securing $500,000 for the waterslide complex.
I would have thought the Harbour Foreshores Project would have greater potential to enhance our tourist facilities for all ages and create a higher capacity for employment. The Big Banana is a private business, and good luck to them, but why couldn't the council have applied under the same guidelines?
The Harbour Foreshores Project covers a broader public interest and usage and is on public land.
Council needs to explore every avenue for funds to improve our recreational and tourist facilities. If the Big Banana can do it, why can't our council be as enterprising?
