Better off divorced
AFTER all the extensive meetings and consultations held within the community and the $900,000-plus spent on consultancy fees for the project, there were two preferred sites for a lagoon-type pool.
One site was behind the surf club and the other was the Rex Smeal Park area.
Now you, our Johnny-come-lately political masters, have the audacity to tell the people of Port Douglas that our two preferred sites are wrong and we should now change our minds and accept your proposed site which was never contemplated as a possible location. The sooner we are de-amalgamated and divorced from this doubtful council the better for the deserving residents of both shires.
