Council throwaways

Wellington Shire Council throwaways, like this public relations rag that no doubt goes straight to most bins.

Its custom made pencils are discarded after a lake activity, along with posh finger food at council-sponsored meetings, not to mention the unnecessary Raymond St roundabout and mall upgrades.

These are just some of the excesses that help explain our outlandish annual rates increases.

Why pay a PR officer, who treats us like idiots by publishing this bad news prefaced by all the council’s “wonderful achievements”?

If the business lobby on the council wants to turn our home into a mecca, let them pay for it, not the rest of us who know how to live sustainably.
