Petition Presented to Local Council

Of 11 people in the public gallery at the June meeting of the District Council of Coober Pedy 9 were locals in support of the petition of people concerned with anti-social behaviour in the main street. The petition signatures (1009 signed) were presented to the council. Other copies will be presented to State MP Lyn Breuer and Federal member Barry Wakelin.
Mayor Steve Baines accepted the petition on behalf of the council and said that the council fully supports the efforts of the petitioners and is pleased that the public has made this move. He said that a letter, countersigned by the mayors of Port Augusta and Ceduna has been sent by the council to the Liquor Licensing Committee, requesting that additional power be given to local police to decant and confiscate alcohol being consumed in the Dry Area of the town. No reply has yet been received.
