Cutting red tape
THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT
OF all Renmark Paringa
Council's projects across the
district this year, the fancy new
public toilets on the main street
have emerged as an unlikely
tourism hero for Renmark.
The two new blocks were
built in the weeks leading up
to the town's iconic rose festi-
val as part of the Town Centre
Revitalisation Project -- funded
by the Federal Government,
Renmark Paringa Council,
Renmark Club and Renmark
With the new public toilets
completed in time for the festi-
val opening two weeks ago, the
modern facility has attracted
attention from locals and visi-
The new loos caught the eye
of Member for Barker Tony
Pasin while in the region last
week and he mentioned them
in his speech at the opening of
Renmark's boat mooring pon-
Renmark Rose Festival chair
Meredith MacCulloch said she
was hard pressed to find a local
or visitor not impressed by
the modern facilities, and the
Pioneer has received at least
half a dozen complimentary
letters and texts praising the
"I'm very impressed
myself," Mrs MacCulloch said.
"I think they've done a won-
derful job with them.
"I heard from other people
that they were really impressed
that they had got them finished
in time for the rose festival
and that they had done a
wonderful job decking them
"They look good."
Renmark Paringa Council
chief executive Tony Siviour
said he had even met some
travellers who had deliberate-
ly stopped in Renmark just to
have a look at the loos.
"I just happened to be there
on Saturday morning and this
couple came up to me and
asked about the toilets," he
"They said they were
so impressed that they had
stopped just to look.
"They said they hadn't seen
anything like them before
and that they would definitely
come back again."
Mr Siviour said council had
hoped to catch the eye of trav-
ellers through the revitalisation
project and hopefully tempt
them to stop in town.
"Some people thought we
had probably spent too much
but we were hoping to achieve
a really good look for Renmark
and we've definitely done
that," he added.
A MAN was arrested this week after allegedly
going on a breaking and entering spree in
Riverland houses and business premises
Police said they arrested the 36-year-old man,
of no fixed address, after officers were called to
a business premises in Renmark at about 2am
on Wednesday, when an alarm was activated.
"During a search they found a man hiding
inside," said the police spokesperson.
"He allegedly had cash in his possession
which police will allege was stolen from the
"Further investigation led to (man) being
charged with a total of seven counts of serious
criminal trespass and seven counts of theft."
The man was refused bail and appeared in the
Berri Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
Renmark Paringa Council's director of infrastructure and environmental services Paul Day said council had heard nothing but praise for
the new modern public toilets on Renmark Avenue. INSET: The inside of the toilets. PHOTOS: Will Slee
