AGAIN we hear Mayor Ital­iano state he will not en­ter­tain cer­tain ques­tions asked by mem­bers of the pub­lic dur­ing pub­lic ques­tion time and deems them “out of or­der”.

Although this is not a court of law and the pre­sid­ing judge is not de­cid­ing on points of law, Mayor Ital­iano takes it upon him­self to de­cide what is ac­cept­able.

It may never oc­cur to Mayor Ital­iano that em­ploy­ees of the Coun­cil, past and present, coun­cil­lors, mem­bers of the press, lo­cal gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives and some of his 200,000 ratepay­ers may wish to hear both ques­tion and an­swer at coun­cil meet­ings.

Let all ratepay­ers have their demo­cratic say Mayor Ital­iano, it may de­crease the angst, frus­tra­tion and anger that we have en­dured these past few years, or con­versely step down as Mayor. ROLAND HADLEY, Ewen St Com­mu­nity Group, Wood­lands

It is ac­tu­ally lu­di­crous and just think if peo­ple speak out, we may be able to stop get­ting ripped off in this town.

Why is it nec­es­sary to firstly have to pay more than any city in the world for a movie ticket, then get charged $5.20 for a bot­tle of wa­ter.

Se­ri­ously, I pay $3.99 re­tail for 20 bot­tles.

Come on Event Cin­e­mas, movies are sup­posed to be an en­joy­able, re­lax­ing ex­pe­ri­ence – but it truly be­comes a once in a while very costly treat.

It's to­tally un­nec­es­sary to rip us off to that level not good, DEB LEVY, Kar­rinyup.
