The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, MAY 19, 1916. BOROUGH RECLAMATION.
At Wednesday's meeting of the Akaroa Borough Council, Cr Cantrell gave notice to move that the motion be rescinded dealing with the depositing of rubbish along the beach front by Hammond's corner. The position js that the Council wants a dumping ground for rubbish, and at the same time wants to make further reclamation. The sea front along Beach road is not at all unsightly at present and the work of reclamation there is unnecessary. At the same . time the reclamation of the beach at Waeokerle's creek is an urgent r?. r S. i .'.ir. For many years there h':.:.- been talk of the eyesore for visitors entering the town, butj
n: action has been taken. It would be manifestly unjust to go on with the reclamation on Beach road front with the filthy spot left untouched. It is a bad thing , to the cry of North and South ends of the town, but
: " cer.raon justice the North end should come in for the next niece of reclamation. The preliminary expenses need not be very great, merely the erection n " ". well, the piping of the creek, nrrxnmp.nt that has been brought forward, that it is such a long way to cart rubbish, but when the men are working in a contral place there is little difference in the distance taken. The removal of that unpleasant sea beach at the entrance of the town would make a vast difference to the appearance of the place. And apart from the selection of a dumping ground the work should be taken in hand as soon as possible.
