NEW COUNCILLORS, at MANNINGHAM,WHITEHORSE,MAROONDAH,NILLUMBIK,and YARRA RANGES ?1 March at 18:37 from atlas
WELL ONE WOULD ASSUME THAT WHEN A BUSINESS APPOINTS NEW DIRECTORS AT ITS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING,IT WOULD FOLLOW THAT ,AS THE SAYING GOES,"A NEW BROOM WOULD SWEEP CLEAN",and as part of their agenda,they would closely examine whats wrong with the business .
Well expectations,are one thing,and achieving them is another.
We say this,because,our councillors do not have a clue about the ongoing inherent issues,that are the scourge of ratepayers and citizens alike.This is because they do not find out these facts before they get elected or even re elected;but,more so the beauocracy makes a very good FIST,of not revealing what they haven't done in all those years prior.
There are 2 examples here;the first relates to the derilict site next to OFFICE WORKS,on Maroondah Hwy.Ringwood,which has been poorly demolished,but left exposed to adventurous kids who use it as a skateboard park.
It is not securely fenced,as required by WORKSAFE,or as required by the Maroondah City Council's own bylaws.
There is nothing wrong with being an adventurous kid,as we all acted the same when we were that age;however,what is of concern about this patch is its dangerousness,that will ultimately cause injury to the adventurers.
Those who get injured,in this day and age,are able to sue quite handsomely mind you ,the MAROONDAH CITY COUNCIL,yes you the ratepayers and citizens will have to pay,as insurance will not cover the council if they neglect their duty of care.
The Maroondah City Council,Councillors and Directors have been informed of this dangerous situation,however still nothing has been rectified.
The second example,amongst many others concerns Manningham City Council,and its half hearted approach to repairing footpaths and roads.Close to home is Park Road Park Orchards;as I try to cross the road from the north side,opposite the Post Office,to the South side,I have 2 chances of tripping ,"arse over tit",on the roadway thats been in a state of dissrepair for more the 30years.
Of course if I can still walk home,along the north side,the multi,multi trip points,are so inviting that you cannot help but "FALL in LOVE".with your local Councillors and all the Directors and CEO of Manningham City Council.
Like all Local Governments , they are so much in love with themselves;its so excruciatingly painful to watch as they serve themselves before their masters,yes us ratepayers and citizens?
Have you ever heard,a Council Employee or Councillor,crying wheres my next meal come from! Never let it be said,but many,many times,you will hear stories of ratepayers and citizens,suffering under the load and burden,of excessive rates and other charges.
To further highlite the insidiousness of Councillors,I remember Former Councillor Pat.YOUNG,of Manningham City Council,saying to newly appointed Councillor Charles Pick ,"remember Charles ratepayers are the enemy";Charles went onto be Mayor,and this 23yrs.old upstart,took his instructions many steps further,by banning a ratepayer for life.
Its now time for all our elected Councillors instruct Mr.Joe Carbone the CEO of MANNINGHAM,and Mr.Frank Dixon,the CEO of Maroondah City Council,to fix these long overdue problems with infrastucure immediately.
One of the best way for ratepayers "PARENTS",to achieve this is to instruct the Chief Executives,to put the "uselessnes" responsible into the rubbish bin ?
