Care Group Unable to Secure Meeting With Councillor Young

I know many residents and users have been inquiring on the outcome of the meeting with our elected Councillor Pauline Young but unfortunately the Care Group have been unable to secure a meeting. Despite other Councillor’s and Federal representatives performing their duties as normal and meeting with the public, Councillor Young has not been able to meet due to COVID restrictions.

The Care group as a last resort have requested a phone call to discuss ongoing issues an her election commitment, again denied. The reason given was that many statements in our post have previously been addressed therefore Clr Young feels it was not necessary for a special meeting to occur.

Clearly many issues have NOT been addressed, hence we will continue of efforts to meet with our elected representative and advise the public on our progress.

Its Spring Time! Time to NOT Fertilise the Lawn

Just a reminder to go easy on the fertiliser this spring as the last thing the lake needs is more nutrients!

The significant loss of submerged vegetation over many years has resulted in very little take up of nutrients entering the lake. The result is that the majority of these nutrients are now left available for the algae to feed on.

It is no coincidence, that the loss of plants and the resultant deterioration of lake health has coincided with an increase in algal blooms.

Despite the importance of submerged vegetation on lake health, Council currently has no plans to reverse the decline.
