‘Tired’ spend­ing

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

I READ with in­ter­est the ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing the sand ero­sion at Woodgate Beach. There ap­pears to be no money avail­able for this very nec­es­sary work. One won­ders why in view of the amount of rates paid by Woodgate res­i­dents. The com­ment was made that no coun­cil in­fra­struc­ture was un­der threat. Of course not, there is very lit­tle coun­cil in­fra­struc­ture at Woodgate, the for­got­ten beach. Imag­ine my sur­prise on read­ing the next day’s pa­per to find this same coun­cil has found money to fix a Bar­gara park be­cause the poor thing is look­ing “tired”.

...spend that huge amount of money more wisely

The sum of $1.5 mil­lion was quoted the day after. Is this some sort of joke? For me per­son­ally, Chris­tensen Park is fine just the way it is. Sure, add some more pic­nic ta­bles, but spend that huge amount of money more wisely. I would like to sug­gest the only thing “tired” in this story is some of our coun­cil­lors. Per­haps it’s time for a change. And I don’t mean at Chris­tensen Park. L. CHRIS­TENSEN Norville
