Western Suburbs Weekly - - WESTERN OPINION -

SU­BI­ACO res­i­dents are an­gry that the City of Su­bi­aco has re­duced the max­i­mum num­ber of vis­i­tor park­ing per­mits from two to one.

I agree with the res­i­dents. There will be an elec­tor’s mo­tion be­fore coun­cil on Jan­uary 19 to change the vis­i­tor’s per­mits back to two per house­hold. Please come along and make a state­ment in sup­port of the mo­tion.

Same in Cam­bridge, Three homes in my street, the own­ers paid in the mil­lions but can’t get a vis­i­tors per­mit as they have rear park­ing. When they have guests they run the risk of a fine. I’m just ap­ply­ing for my passes for 2016. I need a pass for peo­ple help­ing me post surgery, Sil­ver Chain and it’s a no.

When my daugh­ter lived in West Perth, I had to pay for street park­ing, out the front of her build­ing. Such an out­rage, vis­it­ing her and my grand­son and hav­ing to con­stantly worry about get­ting a ticket. This is the sort of thing that make cities ugly places to live. I have since moved down south – free park­ing ev­ery­where, not to men­tion other in­nu­mer­able ben­e­fits.

LET the news­pa­per head­line be ‘Su­bi­aco ends al­fresco din­ing fees’, Mark Burns ap­pealed to his fel­low Su­bi­aco coun­cil­lors at a meet­ing last month.

Subi needs all the help it can get, like Freo, but not as bad, it’s an­other dy­ing city.

- Peter Bas­tow

I agree with the re­moval of Al­fresco Fees in Su­bi­aco.

- Julie Mathe­son (Su­bi­aco Coun­cil­lor)

Couldn’t agree more. Small dol­lars for coun­cil and a po­ten­tial huge eco­nomic boost to traders with the po­ten­tial for food trade busi­ness to spill over to other re­tail­ers.

- John Gilmore

Get rid of the fees. - Cath Watkins
