GLENELG Shire Water Trust will ask the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission to explain why it has not approved tenders for the Sandford water supply plan. Cr. George Tibbles said if the commission did not give a satisfactory explanation, he would ask the Victorian Ombudsman to hold an inquiry on the commission. The shire water trust held a special meeting on Monday to discuss the need to re-advertise tenders for the Sandford supply. The tenders are for the supply and delivery of pipes and fittings. One of three firms to tender, James Hardie Pty. Ltd., of Melbourne, was recommended by the water trust, but the firm said it wanted its tender accepted within 60 days. The water commission had not approved the tender in this time, Monday’s meeting was told.
