Elsia Archer says community divided on issue of alcohol restriction

The president of the Shire of Derby-West Kimberley, which covers the town of Fitzroy Crossing, said the community remained divided on the issue.

"If you talk to some they'll tell you the restrictions are good, and if you talk to others it's not so good," Elsia Archer said.

"There are a lot of people bringing in illegal alcohol and selling it at high prices, and I know the police have been confiscating liquor that comes in like that... and there are people who say there's still domestic violence.

"But there are also people who say they've been a really good thing."
