Can you imagine the state that NSW local government must be in, when Central Coast Council is being considered for an excellence award in eight different categories (“Council up for eight excellence awards”, CCN 340).
The mind boggles at the thought of what they must be suffering in other LGAs, if Central Coast Council is an example of excellence that they might emulate.
Given our superior status, perhaps we should organise relief packages for these poor benighted communities or, possibly, offer them workshops in running up debt, supporting top-heavy administrative costs and ramping up service charges to cover up inefficiency and incompetence.
If they haven’t learned how to hold up a development application for a carport for six months, our Council is the one to show them.
