Banora Point?s Barbara Sutherland

'OH what a feeling!' for Banora Point's Barbara Sutherland who was presented with the keys to a brand new Toyota Echo yesterday by Tweed Mayor Warren Polglase after winning the Council's 2004-05 rates incentive scheme competition. The competition was open to all Tweed Shire ratepayers who paid their rates in full before the due date of August 31. It seems that Banora Point residents are a fairly diligent bunch when it comes to paying rates. The second prize of a holiday for two to the Radisson Treetops Resort in Port Dougalas was won by Wendy Allan of Banora Point. The incentive scheme has proved to be a winner for residents and the Council since its introduction.
