Mat Morris, general manager, North Byron Parklands. 

In response to Sue Arnold’s letter to the editor, it is strongly suggested this former journalist does what every good journalist worth their salt does and undertake a basic level of fact checking.

Parklands paid $165,000 (includes $15,000 in GST) to Byron Shire Council on the 24th of August 2016. As described on the invoice (# 4974.13) that Council issued to Parklands, the payment was for ‘Monetary Contribution to Road Work at Tweed Valley Way & Brunswick Valley Way Intersection’.

Council did receive a Commonwealth grant of $300,000 and the Parklands contribution was to expand the roundabout from one lane to two lanes. It’s as unexciting as that Sue! P.S. For future reference Council’s phone number is 6626 7000.
