What a dis­grace

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS -

I WAS ap­palled and disgusted to read and hear about the ag­gre­sive be­hav­ior of a group of people at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing in Bowen.

That sort of ac­tion would not even be seen and tol­er­ated in a school play­ground.

One must as­sume that there are many people in the Bowen/Collinsville area who, along with me, ap­pre­ci­ate the fine work and achieve­ments of the present Coun­cil as they have worked through the dif­fi­cul­ties on first gain­ing of­fice.

Un­for­tu­nately, those people will not be able to be heard in the cur­rent en­vi­ron­ment.

If the group of people re­spon­si­ble for the out­break continues, then se­ri­ous ac­tion will be nec­es­sary.

I have it on im­pec­ca­ble author­ity that it would cost ap­prox­i­mately $300 per head for Whit­sun­day Res­i­dents to cover the de-amal­ga­ma­tion of the Re­gional Coun­cil.

Per­haps this sug­ges­tion is now the path we have to pur­sue. Lester Ri­ley AIR­LIE BEACH
