I was in Mullumbimby a week ago to attend a funeral and could not believe how dangerous your council has let the roads in this town become.

I grew up in this town. In my younger days when this town was under Mullumbimby Council the roads and the general appearance were wonderful.

Even driving around the town there was no evidence that there was any roadwork in progress. With all the income coming out of this town – eg rates, taxes etc – you would feel that this thriving town should expect better than this council is providing.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
