What a Shame about CHOGM

What a SHAME The Council didn't act on the Report/s they commissioned GH&D to prepare about Upgrading the SurfAir Precinct as The Gateway to the Sunshine Coast all those YEARS ago.
At least two such Public Consultation Processes have been PAID for by Maroochy Ratepayers only to be Shelved and Ignored by successive Administrations.
If they had followed up and BUILT the Landscaped Boulevard GH&D envisaged, the CHOGM VIPs and the Queen (and the WORLD) would have had a  much better FIRST Impression of our corner of the world than the Existing GROTTY Race Track past SurfAir.
It was also the LAST memory of us they took away as they departed.

The Shire Dog Catcher

The Council Employee who does the most damage to Council Public Relations is their latest, over zealous Dog Catcher who patrols deserted beaches in his new 4WD on the lookout for CRIMINALS who flout the letter of the law he is sworn to uphold by allowing their pets to go for a run off-leash.
At our August 2002 meeting we were told by Council Officials that the reason for 50% of all Marcoola Dog Owners being fined recently was that there were over 7000 dog complaints in the last 12 months and 121 of them came from the Marcoola area.  -- Gee, that equates to less than 1%.
We applied to have a small section of beach between M47 and M50 declared an off-leash zone for this purpose but to no avail. (It's too good a revenue raiser at $150 an offence)
