As a ratepayer who is about to collectively subsidise a retaining wall at three properties on Belongil Spit, I’m curious to know what equity we get for our dollars?
Collectively, ratepayers are paying approximately ten times that required of the landowners. So, can we use their showers after a trip to the beach? Expect the odd cut sandwich?
As other community services will have to be cut and rates are increasing at the maximum allowed now, maybe our equity in these properties can transform a section of them into a women’s refuge? Homes for the homeless? Discuss.
