Water­son Track

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS - Alan Bev­er­stock AIR­LIE BEACH

THE sooner we have pre se­lec­tion for the State seat of the Whit­sun­days and the sooner we have an ad­min­is­tra­tor take con­trol the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil the bet­ter it will be for the tax and rate pay­ers in the re­gion.

We are be­ing ne­glected by both lev­els of govern­ment. With the dis­in­ter­est they dis­play in their po­si­tion and the in­ter­nal fight­ing we are be­com­ing the laugh­ing stock of the state.

The Lo­cal Govern­ment Mi­nis- ter made seething com­ments on na­tional tele­vi­sion about the coun­cils oper­a­tion.

It was noted that he did not com­ment on our state mem­ber but it will be in­ter­est­ing when pre-se­lec­tion time comes around.

Water­son Way is just one ex­am­ple of the ne­glect we are suf­fer­ing.

When there is a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent each will blame the other.

The sooner they de­cide who is go­ing to make this main thor­ough­fare their re­spon­si­bil­ity and start mak­ing ma­jor im­prove­ments in road sur­face, road mark­ing and light­ing the bet­ter and safer it will be for the mo­tor­ing and pedes­trian pub­lic.
