Bal­loon by-law just in­flated non­sense

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opinion -

HAVE lo­cal coun­cils gone mad? I find Cottesloe coun­cil’s bid to “ban the bal­loon” an ab­so­lutely pre­pos­ter­ous and ridicu­lously po­lit­i­cally cor­rect nanny state pro­posal.

Most coun­cils around Perth have on their agen­das multi-mil­lion dol­lar ur­ban in­fill de­vel­op­ments and other in­fras­truc­ture con­cerns.

How­ever, this coun­cil is more con­cerned about im­ple­ment­ing a by­law on how to con­fis­cate chil­dren’s bal­loons.

Why do coun­cils feel the need to con­trol and mi­cro­man­age their ratepay­ers? Gerry Cole­man, Bassendean.
