Yes build a lounge, money well spent. Never mind the $1025 one-way ticket from Karratha to Perth they tried to charge over Easter. A lounge is definitely more important than reducing fares. Lauren Kukura Can’t see too many locals using it. Mainly FIFOs with gold class. How about something that locals will benefit from? Sly Flix Qantas lounge!! Hurry up international. Alicia Pike Awesome news. Natalie Singe
The City of Karratha has put a 1.5 per cent rates rise for 2017-18 out for public feedback. It has been pretty unanimous online. Rates are supposed to be based on property valuations. There should be a sharp decrease in rates. Kingswood Crabbey As property value continues to fall, rents continue to fall, jobs continue to disappear and people continue to leave, why not kick us in the guts again? Next thing the council will be getting a pay rise, watch out for that. Peter Schmidtchen This is not right. We pay already too much. The Council should put the thinking cap on and for once consider the locals and property owners as well. The increase can’t be justified shortly. The rates should be decreased based on the property valuations like everywhere else. Anda Irvine If the City keeps going ahead with the Homemaker investment idea and worse still, buying the Quarter, it won’t be a small rate rise from then on. Will Scott Why don’t I come down to the city of Karratha car park and lie down so you can kick me in the guts as well. Jason Kyle
Pilbara went to China last week and it seems everyone had the same thought. Hmmmm yet again we’ll sell cheap to China to buy back at a higher price. We need to process these metals here. Rebecca Cohen Process it here. With all the gas up there power should be cheap!
