Tweed Council staff’s delegated powers debated

The question of what staff and councillors get to decide in relation to development applications was raised by Tweed Councillor Ron Cooper at the last Tweed Shire Council meeting.

Col Thornton raises some interesting ideas about how the Byron SLSC should do its job. Perhaps Col should sign on and become a member of the club, get his bronze medallion and help out patrolling the beach. If you aren’t much of a swimmer there other things you can do, including becoming a radio operator.

The club would probably need additional members to patrol the four klicks of beach from The Pass to the mouth of the Belongil Estuary. Surf clubs are constantly seeking new members. Come on, Col, how about it – you may even get to save a swimmer or two.
