Comment on Council: one third of budget still unspent by Dr Who.

@1 Very well put Alex and a great suggestion, however I wonder if later in the year, the money has been spent/wasted even and the poor suffering ratepayers have to stump up again. I hope not this year. To me having a surplus now indicates no need for a rate increase, “we” have to live within our own means, time the three tiers of government do the same, I won’t hold my breath waiting though. Having said all this negative stuff, I believe some councillors do get what the public are concerned about…

No, thanks. This is just so wrong. I feel sad for what may, could, will happen to this wonderful part of Australia.

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.
