Comment on PM’s Alice office ‘downsizes’ to Supreme Court building by James T Smerk.

Also … I’m sure there are many other Government Departments that could use less space and save money by moving into this building. Was there any research done to decide who would benefit best (save us the most) by moving in there? I highly doubt it, it’s a matter of appearing to be above everyone and high and mighty.

PM’s Alice office ‘downsizes’ to Supreme Court building
What a joke! saving money downsizing … just tell us you want the flashest office with the best view (I’m sure they will be taking the Top floor with range views).
Now it comes the spending on a new office fit out and changing stationary with addresses and a whole lot more. BIG savings there … I’m sure the building will eventually be occupied completely by government agencies at an assumed cost of $2m a year. I don’t know why the Government didn’t just build it itself, after 15 years it would be paid off and they would own the building as an asset.
It’s not like there will come a time when the Supreme Court isn’t required (not in this town, anyway).

Being able to record it and track it doesn’t help if the processes / systems for actioning it once identified are broken.
The system might sound good, we need to fix the whole process and have balls enough to make the tough calls when children are in danger!

Park, lights: ideas for a brighter town centre  
Isn’t there already a space like that on the other side of the river that never gets used?
Are we going to ignore the fact it would be right beside where drunks like to party and sleep, making it not the safest environment for children?
Also, the Riverside bar which would be opposite it, I’m sure anyone who is familiar with this area knows the danger in drunks fighting during the day, loitering out the front and down the road and dodgy kids who walk around testing all the car doors for an unlocked one.
It is a good idea just a dodgy spot, if they are going to build the Art Gallery then in that big patch of grass in front of it would be a better spot.

More government handouts for alcohol traders
Wouldn’t be surprised to find someone making these decisions has shares in bottle shops, with the floor price increase with bottle shops keeping the excess cash (no going to victims of crime), police providing security work (when they should be employing local security firms instead) for the bottle shops and now this … why not put some of this money and resources towards helping people with drinking problems or victims?
