State of the grass in Turner and Hesther Reserves

I tabled a petition about the dire condition of the grassed areas of the Railway Reserves at the Council meeting on 23 February :

'The petition of the following named citizens draws the attention of the Council to the degraded state of the light rail reserves between Evans and Station Streets, Port Melbourne. The grassed areas have never recovered from works undertaken by various authorities in the reserves.
The following petitioners hereby request that Council undertake to resew the degraded areas with drought resistant grass and that funds be provided for these works in the 2009/10 Council budget.'

The petition will be fed into the 2009/10 capital works budgeting process.
