Why the link to the commentary by Councillors Mike Hudson and Don Palmer?
There's no point to repeating what they have already said.

However, I am still annoyed by the successful push by Councillor Michael Hewitson to jack up the rates by a further 0.3% to partially pay for increased landfill dumping fees for recycle waste.

I still maintain that the only responsible way to cater for an unknown extra dumping fee (by my estimate to be $250k) is to cancel the Tour Down Under Gourmet Gala and race start that costs a whopping $275k pa.
