Comment on The town is safe in public servants’ hands: forum told by Hal Duell.

The Town Council is neither a housing authority, nor does it have any policing powers. The Rangers do what they can, but their power is limited to infringement notices dealing with by-laws.
Boycotting public meetings is counter productive. Don’t attend if you don’t want to, but why make such a song and dance of it?
The Mayor is attempting to lead from the front. Others are sniping from the rear.
There is becoming an obvious attempt to “white ant” Mayor Ryan and the 11th ASTC.
Social unrest is being used as a Trojan Horse.
Our local politics have gone mad.
Or has the March election started early?

The town is safe in public servants’ hands: forum told
Not entirely fair, Steve. I agree that too much talk/talk gets us nowhere, but it’s still early days to write this summer off as one of mayhem, as we all agree last year’s was.
Right now we need to pull together with our Council and give them the benefit of the doubt.
I too recognise that the jury is still out. But let’s wait and see while hoping for the best. If we are proven wrong and they show themselves incompetent, that will be the time to cry doom and gloom.
For the record, last Tuesday’s meeting was the first on this topic I have been to this year. And living right in The Gap, as opposed to out past the clay-pans, I am well aware of when the shit hits the fan.
Also for the record, the sniping from the rear is coming from within Council, not from the gallery.

Gallery business case far from ‘well underway’

Exactly! I could not agree with you more.


Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership
Just after midnight last night I was returning home from a shift stocking shelves, and I decided to travel up Gap Road. Suddenly, WHOOSH!, a wagon wheel passed me.
And I thought to myself, ‘Self, I wonder what wagon that wheel has just come off of?’


No ‘comprehensive business case’ yet for gallery
I think that whether the art gallery is eventually built somewhere in Alice or, as seems more and more likely, in Adelaide, the whole exercise will go down as a textbook study in how NOT to progress a major project.
I don’t know what this means for the Gunner government, but the longer he pushes it, the more the fable of Br’er Rabbit and the Tar Baby spring to mind.


Panel of just two for controversial Ilparpa decision
What! A social engagement with the PM in preference to a local issue that really matters. Onya, Jimmie and Jamie, ya pair of wannabees.

Onya, Rex. If ever there is a local theatrical adaptation of The Silver Skates I hope you take the leading role.
