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”.

Master plan could turn around population and economic slump
So long as it’s a plan to support progressive business, not just a return to the long running boom and bust of construction cycles that the town has been exposed to for 50 odd years.There are more empty premises around town than can be occupied.
“Master plan” sounds ominous. Didn’t Hitler have one of these 🙂
