Fran will fight for ratepayer


DIVISION 10 councillor Fran O’callaghan, who has previously protested against the Lansdown Eco-industrial Precinct, said she would not support the council stumping up the cash for the project.

“I will be rallying against any such proposal for the ratepayer to fund private business in this regard,” Ms O’callaghan (pictured above) said.

The councillor said the council needed to sort out its “own house” before funding major projects.

“That is the priority, not some other business out in the middle of nowhere which hasn’t got water.

“Council is not a developer, and nor should it be.”

The Haughton Pipeline Stage 2, which the council is planning, will bring water to the site.
