  1. Why is the coast getting a CEO from a council that is in huge debt and the previous councillors proven to be corrupt? It looks like absolutely nothing has been learned.

    The suggestion that water costs should increase for everyone if the dam level drops below 50% is ridiculous.
    Why should those who use water carefully subsidies those who waste it???
    The equitable solution is to increase the cost of water to those who use more than the recommended daily amount.
    Use more, pay more. The more you use the more you pay.
    No brainer!!

    Too many unanswered questions on council financial crisis.. like how can two high profile consulting organisations give a low financial risk and then we find out we are many hundreds of dollars in we get our consulting money back and what liability do these consulting firms carry in this.. is there corruption involved.. why weren’t the residents views listened to by the administrator.. why was the questions posed by the former CEO ignored by the administrator… A public enquiry is needed to get t o the bottom of this or a stain will always hang over council
