Hello Readers,August 2017 Yank News
Dog owners took a bite at Yankalilla Council at the beginning of July when the dog registrations arrived in the post. The backlash - mainly on social media - resulted in a hasty backflip on fees at the July meeting. There is still an increase but a very much reduced increase. It is good to see Council listening to it’s ratepayers and making adjustments accordingly. There were a number of letters on this subject but as it has been resolved, the space was better used for other items.
The next debate is already on the horizon with the Council development plan coming under fire for going against the Districts 2030 plan. Letters on page 30 will give some more details about this which will be of particular interest to Yankalilla and Normanville residents.
No more news regarding the shacks at Little Gorge so it has probably been thrown on the back burner for now.
What else is happening? The Tom Quilty Cup was successfully held at Wirrina in July. See page 25 for details.
What else? Oh… lots of stuff! Arts, entertainment, health, sport, food, clubs, churches, groups… we have it all - more or less! So carry on and turn the page...
Until next issue...
