Review of market times
STALLHOLDERS at the Yamba River Market now have consent to set up stalls before 7am, providing they keep noise levels to a minimum.
Clarence Valley Council (CVC) voted to change the time. Previously the rules did not allow stallholders to begin setting up until 7am.
Stallholders will also be allowed to dismantle after 2pm to maximise market time.
COUNCIL will donate a total of $870 to local businesses and community groups around the Clarence Valley.
Grafton and Maclean TAFE campuses, Minnie Water-Wooli Surf Life Saving Club, Clarence River Cricket Association and the Grafton Clay Target Club will benefit from the donations ranging from $40 to $250.
Fired up with new accord
THE Rural Fire Service has requested that its service agreement with the Commissioner of the NSW RFS and council be extended for the provision of rural firefighting. Councillors agreed to extend the district service agreement until June 30.
Playground to be named
HARWOOD Island Public School Student Representative Council wants the Morpeth Street playground named after the late Colvin Paine.
The proposed name – the Colvin Paine Playground – will be on public exhibition for 30 days for community consultation.
