Taken con­trol

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Looks like the new coun­cil­lors have fi­nally taken con­trol of Baw Baw Shire - great news.

Re­fer to the Gazette of Jan­uary 4 and Fe­bru­ary 1 where the Baw Baw Shire Ratepay­ers Association ques­tions the se­crecy about the pur­chase of the new dog pound.

Now per­haps we can get the coun­cil­lors to do what the Baw Baw cit­i­zens elected them for run the coun­cil and not leave bu­reau­crats in con­trol.

Whilst you are there find out the truth of the $1.3 mil­lion cost of the dog pound and have a pub­lic fo­rum to dis­cuss that and the pro­posed al­ter­ations to the West Gipp­s­land Arts Cen­tre.

It al­ready has a loss of $500,000 a year. I un­der­stand that the staff are go­ing to be re­tained dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion with no in­come. Does that mean the loss will blow out to $1.5 mil­lion over the next two years.
