Re­sponse

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

IN RE­SPONSE to Tony Moscato ( Whit­sun­day Times, Jan­uary 21), yes, I re­mem­ber the Haven­grand pur­chase – but it was not $2.5 mil­lion as you stated.

Coun­cil’s con­firmed minute (De­cem­ber 17, 2008) states it was a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion 6/0, to have Pep­pers prop­erty and Haven­grand con­sid­ered for pur­chase and for the CEO to com­mence ne­go­ti­a­tions for a pur­chase.

And the $10.5 mil­lion of flood dam­age funds you stated was wasted – money is never wasted when it is spent on road im­prove­ments and con­struc­tion for the ben­e­fit of res­i­dents.

Be­fore you quote fig­ures or make state­ments in the me­dia, it is usu­ally a good idea to check the facts. Ro­gin Tay­lor Pre­ston
