Water Taxi Fares
SPECIAL TO CONTINUE
Monday to Friday, 6am to 6pm, Church Point to Bell Wharf (or the other
way) is still $12.
a slow start while the word got around, the Bell commuters put in a
strong finish for March and the Taxis near-as-dammit broke even on the
Bell to Church Point run (compared to $16 fares).
It only takes a few extra trips a week to become regular and we'll be
able to make $12 to Bell a permanent thing.
Well done one and all. Keep it up.
Yours aye - the Pink Water Taxis
PS. Water Taxi phone is being moved from Vodafail to Telstra as fast as
humanly possible. Will advise.

New Online Consultation Tool
Council has launched a new consultation tool based on Google Maps.
tool is being used for the first time to gather feedback and comments
from the public on the draft review of undeveloped land in Warriewood.
The tool allows people to make a comment using a marker on a Google Map
can then ‘pin’ their suggestion on the map, using either a street
address or guiding the map marker to their chosen destination.
Comments on the Warriewood map are grouped under themes such as
transport, housing, flooding and open space.
Manager Mark Ferguson said the advantage of the tool was that it
allowed people to see what others were saying about an issue.
“By checking a box on each theme, residents can see comments from
others drop into view on the map.”
hope it will encourage more people to make comments online and greater
transparency when it comes to gathering feedback from the public on a
variety of issues.”
He added that personal details such as names and addresses were not
disclosed by the consultation tool.
