19/9/2010 - Local business owners, concerned residents, the Eurobodalla Shire Mayor, Councilors and concerned residents met at the Tern Inn on Sunday afternoon 19th September to discuss the Councils decision to withdraw funding of the annual summer Beach Patrol.
It was revealed to the meeting that, following a Christmas holiday cancellation, the likely financial impact of Council’s decision to businesses in Tuross would be considerable. No beach Patrol means no summer visitors and even just one fatality on an unpatrolled Tuross main beach would see considerable marketing damage to the town.
Following that meeting it was determined that the Tuross Head Business Owners Association Inc should be reformed so that the Association might better represent the concerns and needs of the Tuross businesses as a collective voice.
