Retic gets upgrade after vandalism
Harvey Shire Council has been forced to spend $65,000 to fix a reticulation box which was damaged by vandals.
The damage to the Galway Green box, which contains the main electrical equipment and controls for the estate’s Central Park reticulation, was reported in mid-October.
The council agreed to defer two other projects, including an extension of reticulation on Paris Road, in order to pay for a replacement and upgrade at Galway Green.
The council is pursuing an insurance claim but it believes it will not be fully covered for the cost of the upgraded system that replaces a model no longer available in Australia.
Replacement was described as having a “high level of urgency” and the council’s corporate services committee voted to accept a $65,004 quote to replace the system.
