Hi.. I was thinking about the possible new rubbish/recycling fines that are being talked about by new media etc...And I have a great initiative idea for our Mt Gambier area to become leaders in this area.....Instead of just possibly fining people for incorrect rubbish or recycling our Mt Gambier Council could reward its community for correct recycling /rubbish disposal...Taking a lesson from the coles/woolworths collectables, my thought is that households that have exemplary rubbish /recycling bins receive a sticker on their bin.... Quite large.. That states a catchy phrase like "Great recyclers" or "our Environment Thanks you"... Etc...then with more school education about recycling levels (what is allowed in which bin etc) These would become talked about at schools etc, with children then ensuring that parents and themselves do the correct things thus receiving a bin sticker...😁 👍😉😀I lived in Swan Hill a few years ago and actually had a sticker placed across my recycling bin I think it said... A Great Recycler Lives Here.... Something like that...I was pretty proud of that... 😀But I haven't ever seen that in any other area!Just a thought on a way to encourage and give incentives rather than just punish....And this would also get our kids involved and actively encourage us older people to participate and do the right thing!

After traveling in the UK and Europe many times, returning from seven months a few week ago. We have noticed that many cities have parking difficulties for caravans and motor homes. Their local centres have pay and display parking area for cars.To over come this problem they use a "Park and Ride" system where you can park and catch a bus into the centre with drop off at interesting sites.I have traveled into Mount Gambier acting as a tourist with a motorhome wishing to visit all the sights.The Cave Gardens, The Blue Lake, The Tower and the Vally Lakes are difficult to visit as there is a lack of parking in the areas.Yes there is the Tourist Information parking area as well as the Frew Park area but from here is a long steep walk to the lakes.Why can there not be an parking area where the pines area planted (near the archery grounds), or why not a bus run from the Information centre to a bus stop at the Lakes, even as a local bus run. Even better why not develop a " Park and Ride" from the Blue Lake Sports park area on the highway with drop off and pick up areas around the city. It would need to be investigated if the city bus route could be extended to cover the areas. The parking fees would go to cover the costs.i think the city would gain from this kind of service.Morry.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to direct my feedback but I would just like to register my disappointment with trail bike riding along the beach at Carpenter Rocks today. The Southern Ocean can guarantee fresh air and wild, beautiful scenery only to be completely spoiled in an instant by a noisy smelly trail bike.

I am asking for free tip vouchers for rate payers, maybe three per year. - Rates are going up, Tip fees are a ridiculous price and are going up. A great amount of rubbish is being dumped illegally in the plantations and are a fire hazard and danger. We have been given smaller green bins, We pay for our green waste bin. So really we are paying top dollar for everything. It really is in turmoil. I was fobbed off twice today when I phoned to make this suggestion to council... Advised to send an email. I would appreciate a useful reply to my message

I would like to make a comment on how dangerous the entry driveway to the Collins Court Shops is. People come off Jubilee Highway turning onto McGregor Street and then turn into Collins Court Shops blocking the road for others that do not want to go to the shops but straight through McGregor Street, and it also causes a back up of traffic across the highway. When you are turning right from the highway you don't expect to be stopped by cars that are trying to get into the shops. Also the people that are coming the other way along McGregor Street onto the Highway get abused by the traffic that wants to turn into the shops because you are waiting to go around the corner and happen to be across the driveway. The driveway entrance is almost only 1 cars length from the corner. This corner gets very dangerous, trying to be aware of traffic coming along the highway so that you can turn right and then being confronted by a vehicle that has stopped to go to the shops. It almost puts you in line of the traffic coming along the highway. Is there any way that this can be addressed. McGregor Street resident

I think that the Re-Use Market is a great idea and a lot of great bargains are to be had, But why do I have to wait in line for up to 20 mins to pay for my items ( 20 mins for a $1.35 worth of goods is ridiculous. I can see why most people just leave their items and go home ) Most people will complain and never make any suggestions, well here are some of our suggestions for the Re-Use Market. Have a couple of different areas that you can pay your money, have an express lane like in the supermarket for people that have the right money, and an express lane for people that have only a couple of items, the people that walk around writing out tickets to make things easier at the checkout could also collect money and do a 15 minute turn around to get rid of money so they do not have large amounts of money to carry around on them. The Re-Use Market is a great concept and it would be a shame for it to close because people are sick of standing in line for long periods to pay. We have been to nearly every one that has been open and the problem with paying has not changed, surely the ones that run the market should be able to see that this is an issue that needs changing.

Why aren't the locations of the road seal program posted on this website or better yet - a letter box drop informing residents that their cars will be sprayed with tar if left in the driveway?

Glad to see no parking meters. Would be good to be good to be RV friendly, at least install a public dump point. I came here as a free camper. Please forbid hooning. Both in the streets and on the lake. The lake should be a quiet tranquil place.

Renters are ratepayers too and they should be aware that if this Sporting Complex goes ahead rentals are almost certain to rise by at least $5.00 per week so that Landlords can maintain their current very poor return on investment.As a Ratepayer I do not believe that we need this Complex and can not afford it. Many Ratepayers are pensioners and this will be an extra burden on their resources for a facility that will be of no use to them.If this minority group wants this complex so badly let them get off their backside and start fundraising.

Regarding the proposed indoor sports facility, I would like to think that a ratepayers poll could be used to find out how the "paying public" feel about this expensive project. If we as a City can not afford to heat and run the Local Pool for a full year, nor can we provide a heated Therapy Pool for the disabled, then how can we possibly afford and run a sports centre? How much extra will we have to pay via our rates after the Government Funds have been exhausted? Will the sports clubs involved have to sell their assets to pay for its use? Too many questions and not enough answers.

The Council has to be congratulated on the Rail Land, including the art work with the rail circles and the walking / bike trail.I do not use the walk track (as yet) but many of my friends and family do so.I see it used by so many from the rear of where i work (SWF) as well as from some of the locations that I deliver freight ( Particalboard mill).I would like the council to consider looking into a toilet /shelter along this trail.The location I thought would be beneficial would be near the area that the trail crosses Commercial Street ( near Gambier West Brake ) it would be easy to connect into the sewage system near the street.A uni sex toiler, drinking fountain, rubbish bin, and possibly a bus stop style shelter.Kids and old people some times don't plan their walk/ ride by forgetting toilet breaks .Thank you for your consideration.Morry Mashado

With the new indoor pool and sporting facility, can we please make sure it includes a really decent kids water splash/park/pool. A decent size with lots of kids activities. :)
