Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Re­gional Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (WRRA) mem­ber Chris Mon­sour is hop­ing to con­duct a rates pre­sen­ta­tion for ratepay­ers of Proser­pine, Cannonvale and Air­lie Beach.

Mr Mon­sour has al­ready de­liv­ered sim­i­lar pre­sen­ta­tions for the com­mu­ni­ties of Bowen and Collinsville and be­lieves his mes­sage should be heard in the south­ern parts of the shire.

“This is not just a Bowen and Collinsville thing – it’s across the board,” he said.

Mr Mon­sour says he wants to talk to res­i­dents who are con­cerned about rate in­creases “and put for­ward our case that the think­ing be­hind this [Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil] bud­get is flawed”.

While a date and venue is yet to be set, Mr Mon­sour can be con­tacted via email to cmon­sour@tpg.com.au.
