Street names story turns to saga

The wish of Lhere Artepe Enterprises (LAE) to honour traditional owners by naming streets after them in the Mt Johns subdivision has back-fired, or at least stalled. The commercial arm of the native title holders body, LAE, proposed the names "Werlatye" and "Irrampenye" for two new streets, which the Alice Springs Town Council, after some resistance, approved. Since publicity on the matter, council has received a number of phone calls, suggesting that the names are "offensive" to traditional owners, says CEO Rex Mooney. Council has now written to the Territory's Place Names Committee, pointing to the concerns.

Meanwhile, in other council news, Mr Mooney and Mayor Damien Ryan have attended the AGM of the Outback Highway Development Committee, held this week in Boulia, Queensland. Council will be lobbying for a finacial commitment to the project when it meets with the new Country Liberals government . KIERAN FINNANE reports.
