BREAK O’DAY ratepayers will find it interesting that their rates will go up by 6 per cent next week.
The only notification was in The Examiner (June 26).
Part of the reason for the rise, according to your report, is due to property values falling, and if this makes any sense to anybody it doesn’t to me.
I live about nine miles out of town [St Helens] at Goshen and receive no council services at all.
There are 5-inch deep potholes in the road because the council says it is a Forestry responsibility.
Forestry won’t do anything because they say it is the council’s job to fix the road.
We get nothing from the council except money demands – no water, no sewerage, no area maintenance.
These councils are the only business that I know (apart from politicians in general) where people can be legally forced to pay money and get nothing in return.
