The story about the bikini-clad surfer poster is a distraction from the main game, which is money being wasted on yet another piece of yuppification of Richmond Valley.
Council whinges and whines all the time about not having any money for the basics and yet can find money to mount this nonsense.
Council’s also spent $250,000 on 13 new solar powered town/village entrance signs with ‘symbolic’ logos that can only be described as pedestrian rubbish while at the same time neglecting basic infrastructure such as the sewerage system at Coraki, which is in desperate need of an upgrade.
The reality of all this will hit ratepayers shortly when they get their rates notices with the beginning of the 39 per cent rate increase.
Council is wasting our precious resources on crap. The bikini woman beat-up is a council distraction to take minds of what’s really happening at Evans Head (not Lennox) including the $4.4 million (or 75 per cent) reduction in developer charges offered to the controversial Iron Gates development at ratepayer expense.
