Carpet baggers are in town
- The Lismore City Council banking the developers with an unsecured payment for the infrastructure., with a promise in the future of an unspecified return.
+ 2. Invite investors mums and dads etc to fork out cash for some real estate they have no title to.
+ 3. An Aboriginal elder has threatened court and he is not taking a back step with a win already in his pocket
= Expensive delay, no quick turn around and nothing the mayor can do to stop it. The ratepayers are not going to stand for it when the truth comes out in their rate bill
The developer of course can at anytime spend the money then go into receivership as they often do see Iron Gates as just one example
The moral: Buyer beware
One day the Councillors will stop playing follow the leader and support the community
