Councillors will discuss litter-monitoring camera decision

CAMERAS may be installed to monitor littering hotspots around the Gladstone region if a proposal is approved by Gladstone Regional Council at its general meeting on Tuesday.

Illegal dumping and littering has increased over recent years and residents are not happy about it, according to the Gladstone Regional Council general meeting agenda.

The document reports results of recent community consultation and provides options for improved management of illegal dumping and littering.

Proposed measures include installation of cameras, increased effort to recruit waste management staff, erection of signage at strategic locations, and increased public awareness campaigns making use of media.

Councillors are expected to reach a decision at the meeting, which will run from from 9am at the council chambers at 101 Goondoon St, Gladstone. .

ON AGENDA

Councillors will discuss:

  • Whether to grant licences to 11 commercial applicants seeking the use of public parks and spaces for business purposes such as fitness training.
  • A proposal to realign a section of Norton Rd, which is regularly damaged during floods.
  • The next steps in the process of widening Agnes St, South Gladstone.
  • A proposal by the Boyne Island/Tannum Sands AFL Club for a reduced water bill.
