No need to beef up by-laws: public behaviour better

Council look set to knock on the head a move to double the penalties for some public places by-law breaches, initiated by Councillor Geoff Booth (pictured, at his induction) a year ago. Cr Booth said his aim was not to increase revenue through fine collection but to “change habits”, while Mayor Damien Ryan, Crs Jade Kudrenko and Liz Martin, and Director of Corporate and Community Services Craig Catchlove were all of the view that there has been a marked improvement in the town's public places.
