Clarence Valley Council, November 2009
The Daily Examiner, 5 November 2009:
AFTER months of wrangling over a site, design and cost of a public jetty for Iluka, another proposal has hit the streets.
The Clarence Valley Council has now put on display plans for a pontoon thatwould be substantially cheaper than the original jetty proposal, but could provide extra mooring spaces for boats............
It was estimated the original proposal would have cost about $165,000. The pontoon would cost an estimated$120,000, with NSW Maritime expected to meet close to half the cost.
If the owners of the Sedgers Reef Hotel agree to the new plan, their pledged contribution of $50,000 will leave ratepayers with a bill of only $10,000.
The proposal will be on public display at the council offices until November 13.
Sedgers Reef Hotel owners were unavailable yesterday.
