Greg Best’s big idea to save council finances

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Former Wyong mayor and suspended councillor Greg Best has come with a bold last minute proposal to prevent further rate rises and council asset sales.

Mr Best spoke with Central Coast Newspapers earlier this week about his concept of leasing Council’s Buttonderry Waste Management Facility to commercial waste operators. He believes this would provide council with upward of 2 billion dollars in cash and revenue streams.

Mr Best believes that monies raised in an eventual lease agreement would be sufficient to prevent further rate rises and negate the necessity to sell council assets to cover council’s debts.

Mr Best has written to Council’s current Administrator Rik Hart about the proposal and is now awaiting a reply.

  1. Greg Best’s suggestion has enormous merit. There are some other options also available that could be investigated to monetize the Buttonderry Tip that was not covered or canvassed in this interview which would see the facility remain in Council’s hands and still provide substantial funding to dissipate the Council’s debt position.
