Smoke coming out of our ears
WE WROTE to the Shire of Toodyay CEO and Shire President about our 100 per cent disgust over their claim in August that some of the 60 per cent of local people who signed a recent rates petitions are hysterical and uninformed.
We asked for a public apology, yet neither a letter nor an apology appeared.Read more
‘Hysterical’ is characterised by or arising from psychoneurotic hysteria in which physical bodily functions are disordered and is marked by excessive or uncontrollable emotion.
We were also accused of being uninformed.
What a brainy insight when the shire does not provide us with information – a lack of transparency and good management.
Don’t the CEO and president know they are employed by the people of Toodyay who pay their income?
Don’t they know or even care that we live in a democracy?
It was said in August that the new rates increase is worth only the cost of a “pack of cigarettes”.
Maybe smoke is coming out of our ears, but not due to cigarettes.
The shire’s new draft tourism strategy was to be presented in March, and now appears five months later with requests for submissions.
A public meeting due last month was postponed to October in another sign of disregard for local development needs.
What do we need?
Out with the present regime or we will become a ghost town.
