At the City of Victor Harbor November council meeting there was much discussion on the painting of bollards in Ocean Street.

There are currently five painted in the Mainstreet Precinct and councillors Peter Charles and Moira Jenkins moved motions to support the concept.

Finally elected members voted to support that administration draft a project framework in consultation with the Mainstreet Traders, inclusive of a risk management plan, for further consideration by council in relation to Bollard Artwork and any future proposal by the Mainstreet Traders.

Councillor Charles wanted more than that and for council to donate the paints required.

“We should not be mean spirited. we should give some money as well,” he said.

Cr Jenkins said the main thing is that the traders in the mainstreet can continue to paint the bollards. “At present traders are not looking for funding, but we should let them go ahead with the fantastic job,” she said.
