Residents of Riverton set to pay higher rates with local government reform

I AM sorry that Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey regards the ratepayers of Willetton, Riverton, Rossmoyne and Shelley as such a liability (Times, November 4).

Evidently and according to the mayor, the aforesaid good residents of the City of Canning have been “underrated”.

I’m certainly not aware of this and I live in Willetton.

However, there is another way to view relative positions and perhaps the good residents of the City of Melville have been overrated.

One way or the other I feel sure that the unfortunate MLA Mike Nahan will be toast at the next State election once the deceived electors of Riverton now in the City of Canning zone start receiving their City of Melville rate bills.
