Annette Snow, Myocum

Council needs our help. Perhaps they can’t fix the potholes because they can’t see them as they are black on black? Maybe we need to highlight them to show them where they are?

We need people to get out in their streets and spray white paint around the potholes. It doesn’t have to be a work of art. Just white lines.

Potholes are serious safety issues. We need support to point this out to Council.

We can start with white paint. If that doesn’t work maybe flashing neon lights?

Don’t pay your rates.
