David Moss, Byron Bay.
How sad it is that, once again, Byron residents have to rally to protect the basic town amenities. During the recent Masterplan process and consultation, Byron residents (ie ratepayers) delivered a clear and overwhelming message to Council:
- leave the pool where it is and fund it properly
- hands off the Rec Ground and fund it properly
The message could not have been clearer from residents. The message back from Council, especially the Mayor, was that these two amenities would be kept, improved, and funded properly.
Despite this, it seems that Council Executive have taken the opposite proposal to Council in a scurrilous back-door move. They want to move the pool and change the usage at the Rec Ground. Who’s in charge here? Councillors, stand your ground please.
