The acknowledgement came in the same motion as one approving payments to repair damaged water pipes at the site, which broke due to the unstable ground.

In moving the motion Warragul ward councillor Joe Gauci said acknowledging the tip would help clarify who pays the bills for future damage.

“Western Park is built on a former tip, the ground moves all the time,” he said.

A data logger will also be fitted to the park’s water pipes to detect future leaks.


“What the data logger will show is if they’re using water for showers or if there is a leak,” Cr Gauci said.
