envelope-budgetOpen letter to South Gippsland Shire councillors:
My husband and I would just like to register our support for the views expressed by Crs Hill and McEwen.
Council’s endless rate rises are unsustainable and only demonstrate management incompetence in the extreme.
Cull programs that are not paying for themselves – user pays.
No new major works or projects until a total review of the shire-wide benefits can be proven.
No more office upgrades – only maintenance.
Reduce management costs by slashing management positions and reducing management wages.
Bring in efficiency targets and annual assessments.
Reward departments that meet their targets under budget.
The above would be a good start.
Claire Hardman and Tom Schoeffler, Korumburra.
