User pays for school marches

Ballina Council has pulled the plug on funding traffic control for annual street marches by Ballina High School and Lennox Head Primary School.

The cost of providing the traffic control services has increased to around $2,000 per event and has outstripped Councils special events budget.

At last weeks Council meeting, councillors voted to no longer fund the school marches and instead help them prepare traffic control plans and then charge for their implementation.
