ARTS AP­A­THY?

Wanneroo Weekender - - Opinion -

ON at­tend­ing the sec­ond fo­rum held at the Joon­dalup Re­cep­tion Cen­tre re­gard­ing the Joon­dalup Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre pro­ject, I was con­cerned at the low at­ten­dance. Is this be­cause peo­ple do not know about this pro­ject or do they not care?

Do ratepay­ers re­alise if this goes ahead, it will be at a cost of $100 mil­lion, on­go­ing op­er­a­tional costs aside?

The in­fra­struc­ture is far too ex­trav­a­gant and costly, and Joon­dalup ratepay­ers will face higher rates in­creases for the un­forsee­able fu­ture.

Util­ity bills, health in­sur­ance, shop­ping are all go­ing up and peo­ple un­for­tu­nately are los­ing jobs. This will be an­other bur­den to con­tend with.

I urge all Joon­dalup ratepay­ers to con­tact their lo­cal coun­cil­lors, find out the facts and think long and hard be­fore they vote at their June meet­ing. ANNE BRYANT, Con­nolly.
