Comment on Town gets a say in its economic future as $2b cut hits home by Old Maate.

The public service keep the Government wheels turning … cutting positions opens it up to mistakes / corruption and hurts the local economies.
In saying that I’m sure there are some positions that should be cut i.e. the ones “Appalled” talks about, bigwigs.

Daniel, the amount is calculated on the cost of delivering services over the state / territory.
Hence the NT is a lot bigger and costs are higher, mixed in with numerous little communities all over the territory.
WA’s amount takes into account their mining boom dollars they received. It’s all fair and reasonable.
The thing that affects everything is the mining boom in WA has finished up so there will be more sharing of the GST coming in the years to come.
This is only the start.
The only way for the NT to get more income would be to create a revenue stream via mining … which they are slowly doing.

Increasing the price won’t stop problem drinkers it will just mean more crime to make up the difference in their cost.
