VIEWS SOUGHT ON CLAREMONT WAR MEMORIAL
TOWN of Claremont chief executive Stephen Goode has described the Claremont war memorial as “problematic”. Councillors approved community consultation for plans to relocate the Stirling Highway memorial at a meeting last week. Mr Goode said the council would seek ratepayer feedback by mail, online submission and advertising. The Town estimated consultation would cost $5000, $13,000 less than a traditional referendum. Deputy Mayor Bruce Haynes said online submissions were unlikely to be effective among older ratepayers.
