Water police and fisheries will be out on the water checking all details.” “Report any illegal activity to Crime Stoppers and this information will be forwarded to local police to check out,” Cr Tucker said. “After inspecting the facilities at Henderson Park I was appalled that the ‘Ramp Closed’ sign had been torn down and people had removed the mesh from the cleaning table. Not only that, they didn’t clean the facility and left scales and mess everywhere.” he concluded. Cr Steve Tucker reminds residents of the regulations and the penalties involved.
