Your coun­cil can­di­dates have their last say.

One of the is­sues is the avail­abil­ity of the coun­cil­lor to the pub­lic. The coun­cil­lor should make time to be in his or her divi­sion at least once a week. Add to this a di­rect line to the Childers coun­cil cham­bers so mem­bers of the pub­lic can deal with their own divi­sion and not the con­vo­luted bu­reau­cracy of the re­gional coun­cil.


Se­cond is the down­grad­ing of the ser­vice cen­tre in Childers and out­ly­ing ar­eas which now en­tails work­ers trav­el­ling from Bund­aberg. I would make sure Childers main­tains a per­ma­nent work­force and make it pos­si­ble for that unit to ten­der out for out­side work. Third, a hy­dro ther­apy pool is a must for this area. I agree rates are too high. The prob­lem is the large amounts of bor­row­ings the cur­rent coun­cil has on its books and the pro­jected bor­row­ings plus the huge wages bill for coun­cil. Rate rises should as far as pos­si­ble be kept to the CPI as should fees and charges.
