Comment on Council partnership in CBD complex seems certain by Dr Who.

@ Eli Melky: I would like to say for myself, thank you for your comments, to me a common sense reply, not full of the usual political type answer we see a lot of the time.
Also, it’s good to know someone on the council is reading residents’ concerns, and has taken the time to reply here.
I would also like to add, that it’s all well for residents to voice concerns here and elsewhere, on this and other important issues, however we residents need to make the time to attend meetings and give some input in person. I look forward to attending council meetings.

Council partnership in CBD complex seems certain
Well said Fred: If this totally inappropriate rubbish keeps going ahead visitors may as well stay in places like the Gold Coast with all its concrete.
As someone who has come back to live after a long absence I can’t believe that long term councillors who live here want to destroy the very soul of the town with this sort of thing, let alone even contemplate it. It saddens me to read some of the crazy proposals that are put up, this sort of thing is NOT the answer.

The new court building may be well constructed. It is however, an ugly building, totally out of place in the town. Unfortunately the town is stuck with this edifice!

Well said Michael. The town does Not need the feel of other cities or even Darwin. Just because Darwin is doing something does not make it a right fit for Alice.

Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday
Lawrence: I have to sadly agree with your comments, “a whole village”.
Well, let me say as a single father I brought up two boys myself from age of two and five.
They are now almost in their mid 20s, working here in town, good jobs, no issues.
It is hard by yourself sometimes, but not impossible. Time to make these parents responsible and make kids go to school, etc. But it seems it’s all to hard and against the new PC brigade. I can’t see it changing anymore. Sadly.

Not a million dollar dunny
I would rather walk an hour out of town in 40 degree heat than even touch the door of one of those revolting things, here or anywhere.

‘Dangerous, alarming’ property tax strongly opposed by council
@Steve Brown, I couldn’t agree more, land tax in other states is only on commercial property, not residential, council rates in Alice Springs are high as it is, and as you say, if implemented this new tax would go up every year. I thought the government wanted people to stay in the NT when they retired, these sort of added costs will just add to those that leave already… And for the aggravation it will give people (we all hate new taxes) the amount it is supposed to raise is a non event in the scheme of things.

Hot and dry? Stand by for more, tourism.
I have heard many times that the Alice airport has very high fees.
Could someone perhaps actually find out and prove one way or another?
Actually after a long day, now at home I think I’ll try and find out myself. There is more to this than alice airport charges.
ED: Hi “Dr Who.” You will find some answers here.

Ailing economy needs on-shore gas, says Opposition
R Henry: I agree, they MUST know the majority of people don’t want fracking, yet they persist.
It would seem that what’s left of the CLP here is a constant re run of dumb and dumber.
Having said that it worries me that the Opposition is … just not an Opposition.
