[Forum] Councillor Greg Best called for an independent audit into Council’s handling of the Regional Performing Arts Centre/Regional Library projects and was voted down, but you did not disclose who voted against.
Can I bet that the Labor/Greens/Community Environment Network alliance voted against? They spent $1.2M on consultants – shame. The rumours within council are that the true cost was heading to more than double the $210M figure Councillor McLachlan put forward. The purchases of 73 and 75 Mann St are new records which value the corner at $4M and ETA’s property at $4.6M or more. Great strategic work.
Then there is the input from the Labor Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, who has Councillor Mhertens in her office, a push to spend $401M on bicycle paths, most of which will end up under water if you believe their climate change policy or planned retreat program to impoverish waterside property owners.
