Where are the wharf and mooring levies going?
The Council is quite right regarding the finance for the dredging of all channels in our waterways as being the responsibility of the State.
I wonder if the government can tell the people where is the money from all the levies from wharves, moorings and other revenue going?
Sydney I suppose.
The other thing is: If the Federal Government gives finance to Councils throughout Australia, why do the states get it first and take 10 per cent out just to rewrite the cheque?
Where does this money go?
I suppose to a bureaucrat to carry out some stupid task for that purpose.
If a number of our sincere citizens are asking the same question, that will contribute to voting at the next election.
Let's also put the public servants in their place, as proper servants of the people.
I remember my grandfather telling me that a good politician is a good public servant.
I haven't seen a lot of them in the past 40 years.
