Watch on "Wood Bandits" Council to Arrange Sunday Patrols [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 18 August 1949
Watch on "Wood Bandits" .Cbuncil to Arrange Sunday Patrols Cr. Wells, At Friday's meeting of the.Shire Council, referred seriously to the huge quantity of wood that is being removed from Shire. roads by unauthorised persons. Cr. Wells said hundreds of tons of wood had been taken away during the past three-nionths, and, the takers were not local ratepayers, but week-end visitors from the suburbs round Melbourne. One man, he said, had been seen recently carting away four tons. Timber :was being cleared by the S.E.C. for the new big 60,000 volts transmission line down the Peninsula, and the wood was being carted away as soon as it was cut. Visitors were also taking away crushed rock from roadside dumps, he said. Itv was appalling how much stuff the Council was los ing from its roads. The: Engineer, said the S.E.C. was- cutting :a'?strip 40 .feet wide, and did not :.care who removed the: timber as. long as it was cleared away.

"UNFAIR TO RATEPAYERS" DELAY STARTING COUNCIL MEETINGS [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 18 August 1949
":UNFAIR TO RATEPAYERS" DELAY STARTING COUNCIL MEETINGS Cr. Hirst, at Friday's Council meeting, trenchantly criticised "the time the Council does not start Council meetings, and the, time they occupy in committee before the Council meetings." Cr. Hirst said Council meetings were :scheduled to start at 7.30, but they rarely started' before 8 o'clock. It was quite unfair, he said, :to keep ratepayers, and the public,' Waiting outside. in the` cold till 8.30, as that night, .and many other Council nights. Coun cil meetings called for 7.30 should start at 7.30 and not 8 p.m., and committee meetings should be held at the end of Council meet ings. Doors. should be open to the public at 8 o'clock sharp, he said. Cr. Hirst's protest is long over due, but even then he let the Council off lightly. A number: of Council meetings throughout the year have not got under way till: 9'-o'clock, or near ;that hour. On Qdd 'occasions the :hands :of the: clock'a.tiid,.veryrclose to .9 o'clock.
