Local board jumps into pontoon provision

A new pontoon will be put out at one of the Hibiscus Coast beaches this summer, at a cost of $20,000.

This cost includes the design, construction and installation of the pontoon. Funding for the project comes from the Hibiscus & Bays Local Board.

Currently the project is in the design and planning stage with the location of the new pontoon yet to be decided.

Council owned pontoons are already moored offshore each summer at several local beaches and are popular, particularly with young people.
