Councillors ignore community by voting 6/5

SPORTS PRECINCT UPDATE

 

I am not shocked but I am extremely disappointed in the decision by Fraser Coast Regional Council? today; voting 6/5 on #7million dollars without a business case.

Councillors who are allowing this to continue:

Councillor Paul Truscott – Division 3
Councillor Daniel Sanderson? (President – Football Maryborough) – Division 4
Councillor David Lewis? – Division 6
Councillor Darren Everard? – Division 7
Councillor Stuart Taylor? (President – Executive Members of Council, Wide Bay Football & Kawungan Sandy Straits Jets FC) – Division 9
Councillor George Seymour? – Division 10

This makes me angry to think an out of towner has the contract. What about local spend Councillors?

These Councillors just don’t get it! Maybe they should consider resigning, they certainly are not listening to the community they are meant to be representing IMHOATT.

The difference between the two voting pacts; one is community up, the other is government down. Pretty obvious to me.

The estimate of the project will now be over #55million dollars. I believe it will be at least double that.

There is still NO Federal funding
There is still NO State funding
ALL ratepayers money 🙁

Do you think it wise spending of rate payer money Councillors when it only gets us this?
* Bulk earthworks
* Fence around it all
* Northern Road 250 car parks
* Water reticulation, electric and lighting facilities

There are NO:
* soccer fields
* netball courts
* change rooms
* toilets
* canteens

Nothing in the budget for maintenance going forward.

Think my first live discussion will need to include this as one of the topics. Too many questions unanswered. It is my opinion that there is far more to this considering the Councillors still pursuing after a great deal of opposition from the community across the entire Fraser Coast.This is a very poor decision, using very poor judgement.
