Way back in early March, BeCA reported on dangerous footpaths and how several sections had lifted following an extensive dry period and the growth of tree roots. (http://bellvista.com.au/watch-your-step-2/) One of BeCA’s Committee Members used the MyCouncil website to report the issue.
Sometime later, some interim repairs were undertaken using bitumen to ensure the footpath became safe for walkers to use.
Now even more months later, full replacements of the effected sections have been undertaken with new footpath being laid as required as the photo above ilustrates.
All from use of the MyCouncil website (https://mycouncil.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Home/Dashboard)
BeCA urges all ratepayers of Bellvista and Bells Reach to create a login account for the MyCouncil website and use it to lodge service requests for tasks you believe require attention from Council around the estates. You can make a request for a service such as reporting graffiti, vandalism, a safety issue on council land e.g. parking, report potholes, seek new rubbish bins or pruning of trees on Council land.
BeCA also suggests that where there are concerns which could involve the police that residents use Crime Stoppers (1800 333 000) and PoliceLink (131444) as avenues to raise their concerns as a first step to solving their problems.
