Get on with the job of re­pair­ing the hub

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

WE’RE told that there is no

money to re­pair the hub of our com­mu­nity, the En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre.

Well here’s a sug­ges­tion. Sell the Cane Farm “Haven­grand” at Brandy Creek, bought for a sup­posed sports park that the then coun­cil bought against the wishes of the ma­jor­ity.

The cost was over

$2 mil­lion.

It’s worth was, at best, a third of that price.

Four of our seven coun­cil­lors are still in of­fice now.

Can we have the rep­re­sen­ta­tion that coun­cil­lors were elected to do?

The com­mu­nity is tired of wait­ing for some pos­i­tive ac­tion – it’s not just about bums on aero­plane seats.

The En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre is about com­mu­nity events such as school mu­si­cals, dance con­certs, all kinds of en­ter­tain­ment, memo­ri­als, par­ties, wed­dings etc. Then the road trav­ellers, they need an In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.

Thou­sands of car­a­vans and RVs pass us by ev­ery year, tak­ing their money else­where.

An In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, an RV stop and a func­tion­ing En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre, would not just ben­e­fit Proser­pine but the whole of the Whit­sun­days. We need some ac­tion NOW. — Olga Dufty,
