Barbecues and diapers littering the beach

'It is certainly time to bring in pay parking to help with the costs'

Referring to the note of Bob Perry last week I TOTALLY agree.

I walk the beach every morning and see the garbage these people leave. From broken umbrellas/ lawn chairs, cans, bottles and just plain litter. These are the same people who come out to the beach bringing all their own food and drink. I would say that 90 per cent of the people who visit here don’t spend money.

There are signs up ‘no BBQ’ in this area yet I see people cooking all the time. Where is the so-called bylaw officer?

If you looked at the overload RV parking off Hot Springs roads the next morning there is garbage from end to end, including full baby diapers. Yuk.

It is certainly time to bring in pay parking to help with the costs. I get tired of hearing some of the businesses say people will stop coming. It certainly won’t stop them from spending, as they already have. Time to wake up folks and listen to what Bob Perry is saying.

One more point. Why do I, as a Harrison tax payer, pay the same amount to launch my boat as someone from out of town? Do not some of my taxes help to cover the cost of this.

Other cities in the interior have ‘free boat launching’. Not at Harrison; we need the money to subsidize the business.
