Coun­cils sur­vey on River Street

Dubbo Photo News - - News -

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 with their opin­ions and he will com­pile those sub­mis­sions as well as the sur­vey re­sults.
