Sort out your act

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

It would ap­pear that we, the ratepay­ers, elected some coun­cil­lors who still need in­struc­tion on pro­cesses, but we have paid coun­cil staff who have been in their po­si­tion for a num­ber of years who still demon­strate their in­abil­ity to un­der­stand ba­sic busi­ness de­ci­sions.

These peo­ple are em­ployed for knowl­edge and skill, and also paid highly for this. In the last cou­ple of weeks all we have heard is how they have cost ratepay­ers con­sid­er­able un­planned ex­pense.

There needs to be ac­count­abil­ity for their poor per­for­mance, maybe some form of penal­ties, maybe even the sack for the bad per­form­ers?

How can you set a price for a job when you don’t know the full price of the job. This is just an­other stuff-up of your paid rep­re­sen­ta­tives. Sort your act out and start act­ing like pro­fes­sional staff whom we ex­pect to have to un­der­take our bid­ding.
