4 The Wagaitear, May 2006 Mandorah Beach Hotel The Kenbi Dancers are back! Dont miss out on seeing this local dance group now achieving national recognition Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday bookings are essential Ph: 8978 5044 Fax 8978 5060 Cox Council report Council roads program benefits from wet weather Work should start shortly on the Cox councils Roads to Recovery program and other minor road works. The contractor working on the Cox Peninsula Road, Alan King, is to carry out the work which will see the access to the shop, the pond at the Wagait Tower RoadCox Drive intersection and some road verges reconstructed. Peter Clark told councillors there would be a major improvement to the shop access. Its a pretty big job, we need to extend the drain past the next block, he explained. The contractor expects to complete the work while the Cox Peninsula Road work site is drying out. New plans to redevelop the Mandorah Beach Hotel are expected to be lodged with the Development Consent Authority very shortly. The council has been told the Maddalozzo Group is addressing concerns raised by submissions about the original plans. These include engineering, structural and environmental concerns. The authority has assured the council that it will be holding a public hearing at Mandorah when the final submission is considered. The Cox Peninsula Council has won a further $3000 grant from the NT Governments Office of Sport and Recreation to install the shade-cloth over the childrens play equipment at the sport ground. The council applied for the grant after earlier funding from the Community Benefit Fund fell short of the amount needed. An application for $50 000 from the Australian Governments community water grants was unsuccessful, but the council was encouraged to reapply next financial year. The money would be used to provide a water recycling facility for the new utilities building-cyclone shelter. Shes done it again! Jill Formby with her amazing scale model of the councils new utilities building and cyclone shelter. Its on display at the council office.
