Comment on Sit-down money: Pointless jobs for the dole by R Henry.

I can remember when this position (CDEP coordinator) was one person and returned a much better result for much less money and provided proper jobs that brought money into the community.
The end result was that a good coordinator worked themselves out of a job as the people were trained up to run themselves.
So this appears to give credence to the saying “Big is not always beautiful”.

When Kilgariff was at the kerb and guttering stage with a few foundations we had a fair drop of rain and driving past on the highway I observed the kerbs were not visible under the water and I thought how quaint to keep the new suburb in keeping with some other parts of Alice Springs with poor drainage.
