Let me cut straight to the chase. WE NEED ANOTHER PUB AT THE COTTER!!!!
The ACT government has spent way more money on art pieces positioned on median strips when it could have invested in tendering for a contractor to run a pub and kiosk out at the Cotter. The Cotter offers a nice getaway for families, drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists … an opportunity to experience the countryside so close to Canberra.
When the Cotter pub and kiosk were running there were heaps of people heading out to the Cotter on weekends. Not everyone wants to spend their weekends in Civic shopping.
So … I ask for your feedback. What are your thoughts on the ACT government putting out a tender for a contractor to build a new pub and kiosk … as well as tendering for a publican and a kiosk operator to man these establishments on weekends? It sounds like a no brainer to me and would be money well worth spending on our local tourism industry.
