Tuross Fishing Club recently approached Eurobodalla Council encouraging them to apply for the recently announced disability grants funding program offered by Fisheries and Family and Community Services.
The fishing club committee believed there was an opportunity to improve the town launching facilities by incorporating disability/less mobile lower access facilities with an extension to the existing jetty with a pontoon (similar to Nelligen/Moruya and many others). Unfortunately this proposal was not supported at this stage. Council expressed concern regarding recurrent maintenance of such improved infrastructure. Further approaches will be made next year.
