Comment on At last, public will get a say on Anzac Oval: Town Council by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Jimmy: “The risk to council is that the community-owned asset may be compulsorily acquired.” Compulsory? No, Jimmy acquisition, or “resumption” is when an authority like the Government acquires privately owned land or property.
Most commonly it is done in order to build infrastructure like roads or public transport, but other reasons property could be acquired include public safety – in cases of contamination for instance.
That compulsory acquisition is usually done to make what people hope are big improvements to their communities. Certainly not the case of our oval.
It belongs to the ratepayers, not the council which comes and goes.
Therefore an objection should be recorded by the ratepayers if after a real fair survey the majority opposes the acquisition.
An objection is to contain particulars of the effect that the acquisition would have on the interest that the person (ratepayers) objecting has or claims to have in the land.
The Minister may, at any time before the date of acquisition, modify or abandon a proposal.
The Minister must cause notice of any modification or abandonment of a proposal to be lodged with each affected person; and consultation is to take place over a period of three months if the proposal relates to less than five hectares of land.
I believe that the process will take so long that Gunner will be gone. Maybe it is time to start a Ratepayers’s Association.

Great idea. Excellent for the tourists who do not have a car and or cannot afford a tour bus.

@TJ: What happens when they talk about sacred sites and cultural issues concerning the women?
In traditional Anangu society, men and women have distinct but equally important roles, performing specific tasks that benefit the whole community.
There are male sacred sites (men’s business) which are forbidden to women and women’s sacred sites (women’s business) which are forbidden to men.
National Park Management Plan 2020: The Working Together painting by Jennifer Taylor Uluru-Kata Tjuta has a central circle representing the park.
The twelve seated figures are the members of the Board of Management: Four pairs of male and female Anangu (the brown) and four Piranpa (the white).
So could you explain your comment regarding Barb?

@ Local 1: I am in total agreement. Ming Lai has a case: Employers have rights and responsibilities regarding workplace health and safety. A duty of care exists to provide for the protection to the health, safety and welfare of workers and others within a workplace.
An employers’ responsibility includes:
• Ensuring workers receive sufficient information, instruction and training in the work that the worker may be required to perform.
• Enabling the worker to perform the work without risk to the health and safety of the worker, or any other person.

Local1: An expressed opinion is not necessarily nasty.

@ Ming Lai, with respect, you were alone, you did not received the safety course promised, but you chose to go.
In your CV I can see you are a Jungian, therefore you are familiar with the “The Power of Choice” and the poem I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk, and the four choices.
