I’ll do my best to be succinct, clear, and on topic, as often as may be.
I’m solidly on record as a critic of Smiling Simon, our mayor. I’d like to widen that to the council in general. If it was just the treachery of Rose Wanchap, it would be bad enough, but the level of foolishness and failure is chronic.
The Greens have effectively abandoned the renters of Byron Shire, and the honest b&b owners and legitimate accommodation providers. Fast Buck$ has repeatedly pointed out ways to address the issue, as have others.
The decision to impose an incompetent paid parking scheme, over property owners who have already paid for parking in the past, via DA approvalsand contributions, and over any common sense, ranks alongside the
‘peek-a-boo’ flasher toilets.
So, what more can possibly be said? I’m stumped. There’s only one thing left to do: citizens, dump the lot.
