Beach added to cleaning program
THE beach between Petersen Rd and Ansons Rd at Craignish is to be added to the regular beach cleaning program by Fraser Coast Regional Council.
This is a boon for regular beachgoers in the area who have complained about the need for the council to contribute to the upkeep of the environment in the area.
The council decided yesterday at its ordinary meeting to clean the beach four times a year during key school holiday periods.
The extra cleaning will cost ratepayers $6000 and bring the annual beach cleaning bill to $76,862.
The council will now call for tenders for companies to carry out the beach cleaning for the next three years.
