I have been informed that Council proposes to slug the teachers at Byron Bay Public School up to $220 annually to park their cars in the pot-holed, muddied and corrugated side-streets surrounding that lovely school, all while they undertake the quality education of our ‘young hopefuls’.
This despite the assurances at the outset from Council that front-line workers from out of town would be ‘looked after’ as the paid-parking was rolled out, that paid-parking was aimed at raising revenue from tourists.
Most of the teachers at that school already sacrifice considerable driving time and car costs, not being able to live near their work. What kind of a council does that?
