The last Gourmet Gala in Unley

Another great TDU in SA.
And a reasonable crowd at the street party on King William Road, Unley.
That party cost Unley Council $275,000 (or 0.5+% of the last rate rise for Unley residents).
A great party, but at a huge cost to the rate payers.
Soon we will hear from Council that the event brought in excess of $1million in revenue to the local businesses.
After 20 years of funding by Council, maybe it's time for the local businesses to contribute more to fund the event.
I feel that the street party has run its race and Unley Council should save money and perhaps fund a few smaller and more community themed events in our larger parks.
Its time to change!
Unley should give it up and let the event go to Kangaroo Island in 2021.

Mayor Michael Hewitson is all smiles at the recent street party
