Ephraim Sella, Byron Bay
Readers may have noticed the koala who took up residence within the Disco Dong recently (aluminium sculpture in the roundabout on Ewingsdale Road). The koala was hanging peacefully, not disturbing anyone. Nonetheless, someone at Council decided that removing him was a priority, more important than mundane tasks like road maintenance.
Ratepayers paid for five or six council employees and a cherry-picker to evict the koala while traffic was backed up for hours.
Who makes these decisions, even if it was a stuffed toy koala?
