Comment on Council to introduce kerbside recycling by Evelyne Roullet.

To add insult to injury, our Councillors “urge residents to mow their front verges”. My fees are $40 an hour to cover time and equipment!
I remember the seventies where residents were responsible for their kerbside. Then the Council decided to do the job for a rise in the rates, naturally!
If the Council has the money to deal with the overgrowth it can hire subcontractors.
PS: Up to now I have kept my footpath free of weeds, but it was my wishes not the wishes of the Councillors.

Pete? Confidential section? Please explain! In my opinion, Council should not have confidential section.
They are elected by us and working for us but that does not give the right to have secrets from us. Councillors should keep in mind that they are our employees, as we are paying their wages.
We do not want to be kept in the dark, as we are not mushrooms, but as ratepayers we are share holders and have rights. Like a French will say: “The kings are kings because we let them be kings.”


Council to introduce kerbside recycling
Excellent, but why do we have to be charged for it? What if we do not want it? Quote: “Diverting recyclables from the waste stream will extend the lifespan of our landfill site, saving Council and the community costs in the long term.”
Are we paying for our own savings? Who is really the beneficiary of the scheme?

For fact I know some (quite a few) Europeans working for years with Aborigenes who still do not have basic knowledge of the culture / history / background of the people they served.
In this age there are no more excuses for asking: “Why didn’t we know? Why were we not told?”

@ Peter Path: On her web site Jacinta claims “transparency and accountability is all the public seek”. Is it what she had done when in Council?
Yes, she will make an excellent politician for whom words mean nothing.
She personally told me that she had all intention to finish her mandate at the Council. Therefore I cannot trust her.


Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Because I am very curious about all sorts of statistics I rang the museum and asked how those figures are created.
I was told: “We simply ask people if they are locals or visitors.”
Interesting, as I have never been asked.
