I WRITE this letter in relation to the council decision to approve the piggery as per the application from the Jarvis family.
I would like to congratulate the Jarvis family on this decision to make this commitment to their future and to the farming community as a whole.
It is also interesting in the latest edition of your paper, six people from various walks of life made comment about rising electricity costs.
Can this project be the answer for this community?
The Jarvis development is not going to happen overnight.
It will no doubt be a structured operation.
So too, the process described can be constructed in modular style to allow extensions as and when it is needed.
So to the Monto community as a whole, do not be quick to condemn.
At this time, development in primary industries is a matter of extreme importance.
In the early years of 2000 forward, through closure of key industries in our district stripped this area of $100million in disposable income.
So far, no visible government assistance has been forthcoming.
In fact, our services continue to be slowly eroded.
Now is the time for this community to stand firm and work with the Jarvis family to make this development a success.
I offer these comments in the interests of community unity and again in congratulations to the Jarvis family. Dolores M. Fowler,
