IT is saddening to see yet again a demonstration of the constant lack of agreement between our councillors whenever a decision is needed that will affect the general population of the Nowra district (SCR, December 21).
Taken as individuals, Joanna Gash and Andrew Guile are both excellent councillors. However, when we have to endure the constant red tape and time wasting activities of forming subcommittees and the general reallocation of authority from the council as a whole to just a couple of chosen members to decide upon the fate of some important outcome for the local people, then I can see these actions costing the Nowra ratepayers, not only time and money but it will detract from the expertise of the above councillors.
No matter what the outcome of a subcommittee decision is, it will be questioned and impeded by one or several of the remaining councillors. Greg Watson has been very good at doing that for years.
This is our council, let it operate as a whole unit, and we should then get a punctual, concrete and financially viable decision in double quick time. Wouldn’t that be a pleasant shock?
