Stephanie Deane, Tweed Shire Council candidate, Tweed Heads.
Tweed Council currently has a Request for Offer (RFO) 2016217 titled expression of interest – licence to conduct a non-motorised aquatic hire business.
This offer covers various locations but includes the Jack Evans Boat Harbour. This RFO has not been advertised in the Tweed Link, which is unusual to say the least!
The RFO closes on November 2 and the election result tentatively will be declared on the November 4.
In other words our newly elected council with some new faces will be asked to vote on this RFO at the very first council meeting. How convenient for some, remembering that Paula Kloots, owner of Endless Summer Hire (a water sports hire company), is running on Carolyn Byrne’s election ticket.
Seems like we have been down this path before with the council. A newly elected council were asked to vote behind closed doors at their first council meeting to approve a high-rise development on Bay Street, Tweed Heads!
Time the old brigade of National Party councillors – being Polglase and Byrne – were voted OUT. They have been there too long and have too much say in Council. Bring on some fresh new faces who work for residents and not their party.
