Comment on ‘Reduce chaos: police needed at all liquor outlets’ by Alice Local.

Well said Michael and Steve, but this is not a easy fix.
I’ve seen over last few years the town changing mainly because of lost work structures out on the communities since the shires have taken over. I have seen this in my field of work.
When I approached the shires to see if they were interested in still doing the maintenance I was told they no longer had the machinery to do this as it got sold off.
So the community has no workforce.
I witnessed all the people who were trained up and felt they had a purpose each day to go to work and enjoy it.
Now I see them in town with nothing to do because they have nothing to do out on their communities.
As to cutting alcohol take away hours and having dry days, this is just a joke. We’re only going to see more break-ins and criminal activity around town.
