Coun­cil fire sale to re­coup un­paid rates

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

Cr Marr says ‘‘ You have to ask your­self what’s gone wrong if they can’t af­ford to pay their rates.’’ Bloody hell, it’s not rocket science Cr Marr! Coun­cil rates have soared un­der Team Tyrell – that’s why peo­ple can’t af­ford to pay. Cr Marr’s com­ment shows coun­cil is out of touch with ratepay­ers. Posted by: Rates Rant Coun­cil only sell if the owner re­fuses to make even small pay­ments. I know more than one per­son who hasn’t paid rates for sev­eral years and have never been threat­ened with sale due to trickle to­ken pay­ments. Most of these peo­ple will pay be­fore prop­erty reaches mar­ket. Posted by: AW Cr Marr you were a past sec­re­tary of the Wound Care As­so­ci­a­tion. Now you know how the wounded ratepay­ers feel.
