Community group tackles abandoned boats
The Bays Community Group has resolved to do more to combat the large number of abandoned boats around the Phegans Bay foreshore.
Group president Ms Cathy Gleeson the resolution came during their June general meeting.
"The issue of the number of abandoned boats on the foreshore in the vicinity of Raymond Rd and Phegans Bay Rd was raised at the meeting and The Bays Community Group has resolved to contact relevant authorities to have these boats removed," Ms Gleeson said.
"Our Council bushcare officer will also look into the matter on our behalf.
"It is feared that these boats will deteriorate and break down causing safety issues for people using our waterways, as well as being unsightly on the foreshore landscape," she said.
