envelope-budgetThe South Gippsland Shire’s proposed restructure may have merit but questions remain as to whether it will save or cost us.
Will the 13 positions created cost more than the 13.5 made redundant, we’re not told.
People who have lost positions are offered new roles or they can accept a redundancy package, so if they take a payout, then someone else takes the new position, ratepayers are out of pocket – the cost of the redundancies, no doubt hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Unless we get all the information and figures, we’ll assume we’re being sold another lot of unconvincing spin.
