End the waste

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

COUN­CIL why do you con­tinue to waste ratepay­ers funds on Air­lie Beach?

How many en­trance state­ments do you need? How many more up­grades (will there be) be­fore you re­alise there is more to the region then Air­lie?

Not ev­ery­one has an in­ter­est in Air­lie Beach. It is one town in a vast region, noth­ing more, noth­ing less.

When will it be Proser­pine or Collinsville’s time to shine?

Both of those towns don’t seem to have a voice. If they did they would be ask­ing ques­tions like why is our Main Street still stuck in a time warp?

Or why do we not have nice bus stops?

It seems to me like coun­cil is for­ever putting all the eggs in the one bas­ket and that is why our region is strange com­pared to other re­gions, in that the vast ma­jor­ity of it is un­touched by tourism or funds yet other re­gions seem to be more fairly dis­trib­uted.
