Comment on Whatever happened to the Port Augusta model? by Leigh Childs.

“… an unbroken bottle is one of my favourite things.” That must be one of the best quotes of the year. I agree totally, David. I will never look at an empty whole bottle in the same way again.
Good arguments fellas, I enjoy reading them, but where is Steve’s rant, I mean contribution. Or has he run out of puff already, or maybe being in the real world he has found out that there are constraints on all levels of government.

Whatever happened to the Port Augusta model?
Gee wiz, Steve, don’t get so hot under the collar ? Calm down lad.
We all want the same thing for our town.
My response to your litany of excuses regarding funding, is that [to my understanding], the most important aspect of the Port Augusta model is the role of the Town Council in drawing together the different government agencies. That the Town Council oversees programs and initiatives with the intention of keeping everyone on the same page and avoiding duplications and/or gaps in services.
How much does that cost?


Whatever happened to the Port Augusta model?
I should add a PS to my previous comment re Steve Browns apparent silence.
I don’t want Steve to remain silent or run out of puff. I believe he has some good ideas and his aspirations for the town are spot on. How he will go about implementing these ideas and acheiving his aspirations is another issue entirely.
