If busy Melbourne can share its streets with skate-boarders, so can Alice. That’s the message Councillor Chansey Paech put to the council last night. The website of the city says it "encourages all young people to use the city, including skaters." It goes on to outline a code of conduct for skaters and BMX riders. Something similar could be used in Alice, Cr Paech is arguing. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
