PLEASE SUPPORT THE REMOVAL OF BYRON SHIRE COUNCIL'S 'DISCO DONG' We the residents, ratepayers and visitors to Byron Bay urgently request your support for the immediate removal of the recently erected structure at the Bayshore Drive roundabout intersection. This decision was an 'inhouse' decision made by Byron Shire Council's 'Public Art Panel' without reasonable consultation with the community. The so-called 'sculpture' was erected in bureaucratic haste and at considerable cost ($50,000+). The structure as it now stands has proved overwhelmingly unpopular. However, Council is now considering spending a further $32 - $42,000 which includes the artist 'finishing the job', an 'arts consultant' to supervise, and traffic control measures (read yet more hold ups on Ewingsdale Rd)! This situation is a fiasco on every level. In terms of lack of community consultation, the amount of money already wasted and the fact that the 'sculpture' is an 'in your face' monumental disaster, please support this petition before any further money is wasted. Council meets in August to approve completion of the job.
