Comment on Ratepayer, do you want your money back? by Ripped off ratepayer.

Good on you Eli. Why didn’t you stand for Mayor, by the way?
iIt should be refunded to the long suffering ratepayers who had to endure five years running of above CPI rate increases because the long incumbent Mayor did not have the smarts to initiate paying off the loan early as you correctly did.
As for this crap to consult, investigate as to how to reimburse or spend the $528,000. Just pay it back to the ratepayers proportionally, don’t even consider wasting any more of our money on more hair brained schemes please.
@ Steve Brown: Get real. You did not have any worthwhile achievements during your time in council, don’t stir the waters now.

Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
How long before someone desecrates the Aboriginal flag or removes the flagpole because a lot of people like myself believe we are ALL one people under one Australian flag not two nations.
And if it was damaged or removed watch the screaming and racist comments then! Different matter if they destroy a Caucasian flag or pole?

National Aboriginal art gallery in the wide open spaces?
Give poor old Ron a break (from your old mate Dave). It would be the perfect location as he has pointed out, and would fit in with town tours to Santa Teresa, Ross River, Central Desert Knowledge Precinct and of course the various gaps and Desert Wildlife Park.
Another plus would be transient caravans could pull their mobile homes to site and back without having to unhook if they were on their way back south or heading north.
Someone with brains and authority take note of this option please. Good luck Ron, may the Gods favor you at last.

Youth crisis: council wants to take lead
What a joke. Council can’t even run their own meetings or agendas they have NO hope of running a Youth Services Division. Anyone else agree with me, please?

Gallery at Anzac consult: council hurries to meet govt deadline
Enough of this nonsense. The Mayor and Council are sitting on their hands and would be lucky to get a survey to the residents of Alice Springs actioned by August next year!
Why doesn’t the bureaucratic pontificating Mayor take 12 months leave and leave Jamie (a real action man) along with new councillors Jimmy, Matt and Jacinta plus Eli to take charge of the decisions on the project?
Of course the majority of Alice Springs residents want the art museum and gallery built here but NOT on Anzac Oval, preferably at Desert Park, or south of The Gap, and the Chief Minister and Cabinet know that fact.
Someone in council show some balls and get the message to Darwin NOW!

Cr Melky alleges budget irregularity
As usual our incompetent council have got it wrong (with the exception of Cr Melky).
They have no right to allocate the savings on the loan repayment $531,000 to Ilparpa Rd capital works. There are many more urgent areas that should be considered first.
The correct and honest way would have been to deduct this amount (however small) from the 2018-2019 rates so that every long suffering ratepayer would get a small relief and there is now a precedent for NO rate increases this year.
