Today’s Guardian says it all. This single issue Council are taking away import Community services it seems, just to try and prove a point with State Government. What will this cost us really? Given that the money they are playing with is from the people of the community, either via rates or via taxes, shouldn’t we be allowed a say in all of this?
Of course these Councillors will say they had a mandate to do this at the last election, but seriously, they didn’t have a mandate to waste money, or cut services to fight a losing battle, nor ignore the welfare of the community as a whole. I’m sorry bu this plain wrong and Councillors you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Do we need to wait another 2.5 years before we see sensible people at the helm of Swan Hill Rural City? Hope not.
