Open letter to Byron Shire councillors

The residents of South Golden Beach invite you, The Council of Byron Shire, to come and see the state of our roads east and west of the canal. As a matter a fact in Phillip Street we don’t even have a road anymore.

Our household (again) has filled the required forms for maintenance (6 weeks ago) but to no avail, zilch, nothing.

You have a responsibility to the residents north of the shire to act on fixing the problem and maintaining our roads to a standard that our high rates pay for (sorry, we do get a garbage service).

You should be ashamed because we the residents of SGB are ashamed of the council we voted in.

Craig Lindsay, South Golden Beach

 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
