Councillors are our starting point
After reading Brian Lewis's letter (Peninsula News edition 452) regarding the state of repair of the whale tail street art pieces in the Peninsula Recreation Precinct, I agree the art should be kept in a good state of repair otherwise the local community of people (kids) who like to destroy anything during the night might see this as an easy target because it is in a state of disrepair.
The lack of interest from the Council doesn't surprise me.
We are the forgotten South.
So I suggest Brian to seek out our ward councillors and ask them for the funds out of their small local project funds.
When I was a councillor we had $10,000 for this type of thing.
It might be hard to get them though. None of them live on the Peninsula.
The councillors are your starting point as they are our representatives and can get you access to the people who matter in the decision making process as the staff take direction from the Council who are our representatives.
I will be interested to see what happens to see if our elected reps stand up for this area.
