The current public discussion about a proposed new swimming pool, and the associated water and performing arts centre seems to be getting of the track, away from the economics. The big question is are Local Councils in a position to be able to supply all things residents of local councils wish for? Although the community has a wish list and expectations for public assets to be provided for the benefit of all in the community, how are they to be paid for and maintained in the future? Where’s the money come from and can the shire’s residents afford to pay more to provide public assets that are under utilised ? A very high percentage of our shire's residents are receiving very regulated incomes and are not in a position to pay more just to support others ideals.
Residents need to think about real community priority's at the moment. Name and address supplied
