Pedestrian refuges, car park resealing and storm water drainage – these were high on the deputy mayor’s agenda at Wednesday night’s monthly council meeting.
Councillor Ben Cooper took the opportunity to fire questions at council’s directors while the civic leaders were reporting their civic duties.
Reminding the meeting how many times he’s raised his concerns, Cr Cooper first turned his attention to what action was being done about the poor visibility of the pedestrian refuges in Boorowa Street – one year on since the major upgrades of the main street.
“Because you can’t see them, making their purpose void,” he said.
Operations director Dirk Wymer told the meeting council will repaint the refuges.
Cr Cooper also questioned Mr Wymer why the proposed works to reseal the Gus Smith Oval car park kept getting held off.
Mr Wymer said they were looking at the Clarke Street car park and Rosemary Lane works first but estimated the Gus Smith Oval project would be underway within a maximum of three to four weeks’ time.
Lastly Cr Cooper raised the terrible state of Thornhill Street and how urgently it needs resealing.
But he first called for a report on the street’s storm water issues.
“Nothing can be done until we look at the storm water drainage,” Cr Cooper said.
“Can I call for a report?” He asked.
