Money bet­ter spent

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

NICE of the govern­ment to give us all that money.

Five mil­lion seems a lot for a new Shire Hall, un­til I read about it in the pa­per I thought the old one was still stand­ing, maybe I need to go to Spec Savers.

A few days af­ter Cy­clone Deb­bie we were around the back of the place and a whole lot of fur­ni­ture had been thrown out, it looked per­fectly okay and not even wet.

Maybe some of that money could be used to fin­ish the en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre so the tax­pay­ers have a venue to use.

The money for the reef – some of that would be bet­ter used do­nated to CQ Res­cue, Fly­ing Doc­tor or other or­gan­i­sa­tions help­ing peo­ple, then they might not have to fundraise to keep go­ing.

Did ev­ery­one know that there have been at least one hun­dred un­der­sea earth­quakes in the last 12 months?

Will the money stop them hap­pen­ing?

Flood proof­ing Hamil­ton Plains, I would love to know how they pro­pose to do that.

It is a flood plain, the river is tidal so with lots of rain and high tide where is the water go­ing to go?

Fix that and you still won’t get to the air­port.
