Councils survey on River Street
COUNCIL has started distributing its survey in an attempt to “gauge” what people think of the River Street option for a new crossing over the Macquarie River.
The survey was initially sent to just ratepayers in town. Some might argue that people who own multiple buildings and/or land would get more of a say, since they would be receiving one survey form for each plot of land they own.
We received a ‘Question For Council’ on this very matter recently in which a reader asked: “When Council sends out the survey on the River Street Bridge, what do I do if I’m a tenant in a rental? How can I do the survey?”
Mayor Ben Shields’ response to that question is on today’s Council Watch page in this newspaper. In it he encourages anyone who doesn’t receive their River Street Bridge survey, such as renters, to email him direct at email@example.com with their opinions and he will compile those submissions as well as the survey results.
