It isn't just down to Councillors

The Beagle Editor

Recently commentators in The Beagle have been critical of Councillors inactions regarding some matters individuals see as important to them. There are nine elected councillors and a voter elected mayor. Those who are not satisfied with any of the nines performances as their elected representatives need to ask them selves are they doing things properly in regards to having their elected representatives, properly raise issues on their behalf at council meetings. Most likely they themselves don’t understand the process.

The easiest way for any community member to have a matter brought up for discussion at a Council Meeting is for them to request the elected councillors to submit their concerns in writing as Questions “On Notice” or alternatively as a “ Notice of Motion” on their behalf. Those who want to progress things for a positive out come need to assist their elected representatives in the council chambers with correct and detailed information and with cost estimates as well if necessary. The elected community representatives – councillors cannot help any one if they are not provided with correct information on any community issues or expectations. When they can get agreement on matters it may even take a few council budgets to be able to provide for them.
