Following our newly amalgamated Cairns Regional Council, merged from Cairns City Council and Douglas Shire Councils, after their marriage of convenience last March, we've been wearing the old stripes for over a year. Our old 'City Council' name has adorned the Spence Street office all this time.
I wrote to Noel Briggs last July asking when he was going to update the signage, but had no response. This was interesting, because the CEO was quick-smart ordering his workers to tear down the Douglas Shire Council's sign on the Mossman office the Thursday before last year's March election.
This morning the ripped down the old letters, and we now have the finished result, or do we? I welcome all suggestions for a replacement sign.
