  1. As we all know, Council's are a disgrace, the Country over. Most Council's seem to have a cast of thousands in their employ and the get very handsomely remunerated, starting at the top. I think the Bayside Ceo gets around $300k. The same bloke that oversaw our recycled waste that we paid to get picked up packaged and sent off to Asia. For them to dump in the Ocean! How pathetic! Oh well life goes on.

    Indeed they are a disgrace, the Country over. Most Council's seem to have a cast of thousands in their employ and the get very handsomely remunerated, starting at the top.

  3. Apparently this is not the only dubious undisclosed money drain that Council have inherited. Apparently there is a sub tenant that is in costly litigation with Bayside in regards to this ill proposed Netball Complex with Council at the moment. It appears there is never any money issues with this Council, they just keep tapping the ratepayers!
  4. It appears you already have Alrock. Regards Zoner
  5. Kirsrty McBain is a stereotype of nearly all Council persona. An opportunist who stumbled into a nice little rort feathering her own nest.
  6. You are spot on Michelle. I don't want to appear as a conspiracy theorist here but there is a lot of dodgy stuff happening within Councils. It appears to me that today all Councils are, are quasi state government agencies doing all their dirty work. They used to sweep the streets and do the garbage. Now they a taking on massive projects and ramming through decisions many times to the detriment of the ratepayer. And it's funny how all their staff are so well remunerated all towing the party line. Great post Michelle: all very dodgy indeed!
  7. Absolute beautiful work BVSRRA. Some of these people really do believe their own press? We need more posts of this type because this sort of thing is happening in Councils all over Australia.
  8. No problem John, but it's true. I just wish there were more people who aware of the possible corruption in Local Government. We are selling out our Country to overseas interests because State Governments are addicted to real estate taxes. All we are now is a supplier of the land to people from overpopulated 3rd world Countries and a Country of barristers and people in the hospitality sector. We need more people on this forum - spreading the word and taking these people in Council on.
  9. There's no such thing as democracy anymore. The Sate Government's have just given these mediocre types who lust for power on Local Government carte blache to do all their dirty work for them. And the Public Servants in their employ just parrot out what they are told. If we had more people like those at BVSRRA on here spreading the word we may be able to pull them up in their tracks.
  10. It will be interesting to see how these Councils function in the years ahead. People are starting to wake up that there is very little difference between Councilors and Politicians. Many are just about themselves! With forums as this, Governments will soon get the message they and Councilors should not take their constituents for granted and start addressing the disrespect that many local Councils have towards their ratepayers. I think Councils need to back to their original job of emptying rubbish and sweeping the streets. Because they are out of their depth in the big projects.
  11. Agree SVB, because they think we are a solo voice, they think they can trample all over us. Councils are in for a rude shock especially this one!
  12. Hearty Congratulations to the coordinators of this website.

    I'm certain your initiatives will gain considerable traction as there are so many rate payers across our country who are underwhelmed by the performance of local councils. 

    Many (Councillors and their staff) live in fear of complaints and operate with this cloud above them as opposed to being energetic and proactive in their municipality.

    In the case of Bayside (Victoria) there is just so much dead wood amongst the current Councillors it is frightful.

    Victoria's last great Premier Jeff Kennett would have given them the boot they richly deserve.

      I agree Carl, a forum as this is badly needed. All we need is people of your ilk to spread the word and gain some traction!

      Strength in numbers is what it is all about.

  13. I agree this Council treat we Rate payers with sheer arrogance. The sooner this mob get turfed out the better. And we need numbers to make sure that those that replace them get the message. They work for us, not the other way round!
