Comment on Council rates draft: up 1.5% despite surplus by What A Croc.

One thing that stands out in councils 16/17 budget is that expenditure on their IT department ($1,559,788) and library ($1,554,108) is more than what they spend on street lighting ($1,073,445), road maintenance ($440,509), footpaths ($715,782), parks and reserves ($1,312,225) or litter control ($859,912)!
WTF? A real bureaucracy in the making!!
