S Martin, Ocean Shores.

I just looked at the new version of the Byron Shire Council website to confirm whether I could make noise (use my new air blower) on a Sunday in a local residential area.

Noise curfew information was available on the old website. Alas, we ratepayers have obviously forked out for a new dumbed-down website, which lacks even this basic info.

Why would BSC ever think it was a good idea to withhold such information from local residents? Like the metal sculpture, the new website is another white elephant – an utter waste of financial and time resources.

 


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.
