Waste sur­vey seems point­less

The Gympie Times - - YOUR SAY -

GYMPIE Re­gional Coun­cil is in the process of con­duct­ing a sur­vey in re­la­tion to waste man­age­ment fa­cil­i­ties.

Why would coun­cil con­duct a sur­vey af­ter all de­ci­sions have al­ready been de­cided at coun­cil meet­ings, clos­ing of some waste fa­cil­i­ties and re­duced hours at oth­ers?

GRRRA is also in the process of run­ning polls and sur­veys in re­la­tion to coun­cil mat­ters with in­ten­tion of per­form­ing the process be­fore de­ci­sions and not af­ter the fact.

It ap­pears ei­ther GRC or GRRRA have the pro­ce­dure in the wrong or­der. Make the de­ci­sion and then do the sur­vey or do the sur­vey and then make the de­ci­sion in the best in­ter­est of the com­mu­nity.

All GRRRA cur­rent polls and sur­veys be­ing con­ducted for reg­is­tered vot­ers and mem­bers can be viewed by the pub­lic on the grrra.org.au web­site home­page un­der the Polls and Sur­veys Tab.

The as­so­ci­a­tion re­quires a min­i­mum of 600 reg­is­tered vot­ers to vote in polls achiev­ing re­sults at a 95 per cent con­fi­dence level, sta­tis­ti­cally equiv­a­lent to polling the en­tire Gympie re­gion.

The GRRRA team – Gympie Re­gion Res­i­dents and Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion – will be at the Gympie Duck Ponds and Im­bil mar­kets this Sunday, July 15.

Come along and tell us your ideas on how GRRRA8 (great) Gympie could be and get in­volved in the polls and sur­veys via the web­site www.grrra.org.au or the Face­book page www.face­book.com/gympie. Tim Jerome,

Sec­re­tary GRRRA, Trave­ston
