It is that time of the year again when our visitors come to enjoy Brunswick Heads and are forced to put up with a shortage of decent amenities and toilets, potholes, parking fines and more.

I decided to take the grandchildren for a ride in the boat but was concerned that I would get bogged on the track to the boat ramp in the six-inch potholes. What a surprise I was correct.

I recall that every holiday period: Easter, Xmas, and school holidays you can bet Council has not bothered to grade the track to the boat ramp. The visitors don’t count nor do the locals.

Have requests of the community organisations: Chamber of Commerce, Progress Association, Visitor Information Centre, Community Centre been ignored by Council?

Brunswick’s presentation is very poor and it appears that Council is more concerned with The Bay.

It’s time our ‘leaders’ had a look around Brunswick Heads and other areas and did some basic renovations instead of building memorials to themselves.
