Life in the Burnett
TO USE an Australian saying: ‘I like to have a bitch or I’m in a bitchy mood’.
And what I’m on about is the person who thinks an act like stealing is okay.
Well, as most people will tell you, it’s not okay.
You may ask what they stole. In my case, my reserved water supply: 9000L to be precise. Yes, 9000L of water.
That places me in a situation that I have to buy from the council that water which someone thinks it’s their right to take.
I hope that the person or persons enjoy the water that they have stolen, because sooner or later they will have to give an account for their actions.
On another point, how long does council think that they can keep putting the rates and other charges up?
They are taking from people that are already struggling to meet the cost of living in the shire of North Burnett.
Yes, we have to pay rates, but the way things are now with no jobs and a lot of pensions within the area, the council cannot keep milking a dry cow (the people of this shire).
Halve the rates, sack 50 per cent of the council workforce and get the council working like it should: and that is to bring in employment through business. — Evert Klaasen, Gayndah
