MVP is its own award

It’s easy to get excited about Byron’s new MVP restaurant in Lawson St – it’s not only got standout dishes such as Blue Spirulina Linguine with blue swimmer crab and Yamba prawns, and Fettuccine al Ragù with Hayters Hill beef ragù sauce, feta and baby peas, but it’s also all sustainably sourced from local growers, available in takeaway (even delivered if you’re close to town) and more than half of the menu is plant-based.

Alan Dickens, Brunswick Heads

I have asked numerous times for clarification of what progress was being made on fixing the inflow/infiltration (I/I) problems with the sewer gravity mains in Mullumbimby.

Can the mayor or any of the elected councillors explain why, if the main problem areas in the Mullumbimby gravity sewer mains system have been inspected and repaired, how when the Average Dry Weather Flow (ADWF) into the Brunswick Valley Waste Water Treatment Plant (BVWWTP) over twenty-four hours is normally around 1.5 kilolitres did the inflow into the plant reach 16,628.17 kilolitres? That’s seven times ADWF in twenty-four hours on 22 March, 2021.

What evidence has been sought by the elected councillors, WWSAC, or the director of Infrastructure that this costly process is working?

Will the next elected council still be faced with the same I/I problem that has been there now for over twenty-five years in Mullumbimby?
