Rate cuts have been put firmly on agenda

I NOTE with interest comments by Mildura Council candidate Simon Clemence and Andy (Txt to the Editor) criticising the Ratepayers Association for its suggestions regarding the reductions of rates – whether those suggestions are practical or not I will leave that to others.

However, the Ratepayers Association has put on the agenda the outrageous cost of rates in this municipality.

The current councillors have had a self-congratulatory claim of doing a good job, but anyone can look good in a monopoly situation.

I hope whoever is elected to the council will take very seriously the need to make sure all public expenditure is well managed and tightly targeted.
