cemetery toiletIt grieves me to read in the Sun Herald that "TABLELANDS Regional Council yesterday sounded the death knell for Millaa Millaa's coffin-shaped toilet in the town cemetery, despite an impassioned plea from the local chamber of commerce for it to stay."

All up, the toilet cost the chamber $1200.

Unfortunately, it was built without planning permission on the council-owned land, and contravened numerous plumbing and building regulations in the process, according to a report to councillors meeting in Mareeba.

Now the council has decided to tell the chamber that it will have to remove the coffin-shaped structure that councillor Jenny Jensen labelled "disrespectful".

 

Cr Shaaron Linwood said that if the council let the illegal toilet stay, other people would start to do the same thing.
