Living wage

Central Leader - - OPINION -

I sup­port the call of the Al­bert-Eden Lo­cal Board to al­low a living wage for all coun­cil em­ploy­ees (Cen­tral Leader, April 29). If this means dock­ing the salaries of the highly paid staff and CEOs then so be it. As for Mr Town, I think he should be promptly dis­missed. per­cent­age of the votes for a num­ber of in­di­vid­ual ques­tions.

The most no­table omis­sion is the 55 per cent of re­spon­dents who voted for ‘‘Other’’ in an­swer to the flawed ques­tion ‘‘Se­lect the three sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties you would most like to do at Cham­ber­lain Park’’ with the write-in re­sponses on the sur­vey clearly favour­ing golf, which should have been in­cluded as an op­tion.

High per­cent­ages are also shown for the Chi­nese gar­den (which was then con­tem­plated as an in­clu­sion in the golf course area but is now in­tended to be lo­cated out­side that area) and for an 18-hole golf course, this lat­ter op­tion only hav­ing been in­tro­duced part­way through the sur­vey pe­riod.

Each of the golf sce­nar­ios con­tains an er­ror in the to­tal par of the course and this makes one won­der how much rigour has been ap­plied to the con­sul­ta­tion doc­u­ments.
