Your View: Residents and Ratepayers meeting

I ATTENDED the two-hour meeting and put my name to the hundreds of (Copper Coast Residents and Ratepayers Association) members on Sunday, November 5.

Only one councillor attended and he had to answer a lot of questions thrown his way.

It was disclosed $1000 was given anonymously for insurance for the group that now is incorporated.

My reason to contact the chairperson was to throw my hat into the circle to become a councillor before the next meeting at Paskeville in February.

We were urged at the meeting to write to the local paper. Also, to discuss why the (Copper Coast Council) CEO Peter Harder is wanting seven weeks of holidays in a package. Who will be his deputy CEO while he’s away? Why did Mayor Paul Thomas not attend?

Why was the swim enclosure designed to fail? That is what the person responsible said – the enclosure was designed to fail. I can see why the council hasn’t prioritised Splash Town (honesty box). Free camping at a park in Moonta which has been degraded because of rubbish and fires outdoors. I suggested campers should have a pay and display from the information centre before camping, with Moonta National Trust responsible.
