Jetty opens up A LONG debated and awaited new public jetty has officially opened at Patterson Lakes’ Inner Harbour. The state government funded a $499,000 rebuild of the crumbling jetty with taxpayers’ money and Melbourne Water poured in $35,000. At one stage, a funding stoush between the government and Kingston Council looked like it may sink the project but council agreed to spend about $10,000 of ratepayers’ money each year maintaining the new jetty. “The new jetty will really unlock the potential of this beautiful area, creating a wonderful destination for
visitors and locals alike,” Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny said. “The jetty will also have a dedicated space for the Victorian Water Police and Australian Volunteer Coastguard to ensure our emergency services can respond quickly in times of need.” The jetty is on waterways managed by the state government and links to the privately-operated Harbour Plaza Shopping Centre.

Fake $50 notes have same serial number A MAN who handed over fake $50 notes at an outdoors store in Mornington may have handed over another fake note at a Berwick fast-food outlet. Senior Constable Jacinta Allen, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the serial numbers on the notes – CK14947940 – was the same used at both locations. She said on 26-27 May the man used two $50 notes to buy items at the BCF store in Mornington and then, on 29 May, placed a $5 order at a take away food outlet in Clyde Road, Berwick. The man paid for his order with a $50 note and received $45 in change before leaving the store – without bothering to take his food order.
