Council Warns of Local Scam

Pittwater Council is warning local residents to beware of workmen posing as Council contractors.

The warning comes as residents have been approached and in some cases handed over cash to have their house numbers painted on the kerb outside their home.

The workmen are advising residents that the work is being done at the request of Pittwater Council.

Urban Services Director Chris Hunt said the Council had not endorsed the work.

“Council staff and contractors would never approach residents in this way. If you receive a request for payment from someone posing as a Council workman please contact the police immediately.”

So far the scam has been reported in Elanora Heights in Wesley Street and Powderworks Road.

Mr Hunt said that the Council had reported the scam to police and they were being despatched to the area.

“We would encourage anyone else in Pittwater who has been approached to get in touch with us or the police as soon as possible”

Temporary Pontoon Rental

We're about to move onto Scotland Island and aren't able to put our boats on public wharf which are a 4.1 metre polycraft and a 3.9 metre tinnie and were wondering if anyone would be able to let us rent a space on their jetty temporarily until we are able to move it to a public wharf.
