Letter to the Editor - October 22: Let’s get priorities right

I DO NOT think that new cultural facilities for Coffs Harbour should be a priority in light of local government funding struggling to provide essential services to the region.

Many Coffs Harbour residents who do not receive a pension are already paying double the rates of capital city residents (Mullaway approx $2600 p.a. Castle Hill approx $1350 p.a).

Continued rate rises are not sustainable.

It does not make economic sense to spend on libraries and art galleries when the current facilities (in the case of the library) are barely 10 years old.

In short, am I willing to pay more in rates for non-essential services? A resounding no.
