Unyappy about the cost

VINCENT city council has spent $1000 to move a dog bowl 30 metres, following complaints.

The concrete drinking bowl on Charles Veryard Reserve in North Perth was a stone’s throw from the main dog exercise area, but that didn’t stop locals lobbying for it to be moved even closer.

Caroline Powell-Pepper, who walks Chippy around the reserve every day, says it’s a waste of money.

“It’s an absolute joke,” she says. “The original was below a water fountain in a perfectly good position.

“It’s just an unnecessary waste of ratepayers’ money and completely pointless.”

The work, which involved digging up a path and repiping, is expected to be finished next week.

  1. I’m surprised they didn’t lobby for it to be in the carpark. A drive-through exercise and refreshment centre. But then again, it is Vincent, so it would have to be bike friendly as well.
