Lack of in­fra­struc­ture

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

I FULLY agree with Mar­garet Shaw’s com­ments on the lack of in­fra­struc­ture and plan­ning (Let­ters to the Ed­i­tor, Whit­sun­day Times, May 4).

It was no­ticed that wa­ter tanks in Can­non­vale were empty just be­fore the cy­clone.

The wa­ter com­ing from a bore­hole is nor­mally pumped up to the var­i­ous tanks around Can­non­vale. In case of emer­gency, gen­er­a­tors are used as long as the wa­ter pumps are in good work­ing con­di­tion.

To get run­ning wa­ter to the con­sumers, elec­tric­ity is not needed as grav­ity does the

rest. So, is it not time to re­duce the fi­nan­cial bur­den to the com­mu­nity, as the Whit­sun­days with a lim­ited in­fra­struc­ture has one of the high­est rates in the coun­try yet with in­ad­e­quate com­mu­nal ser­vices? — Paul Blomme Can­non­vale
