Opinion: Objection to Mt Pleasant bowling club debt

MELVILLE ratepayers should be made aware that four or five years ago, council arranged a substantial loan for Mt Pleasant Bowling Club to update their greens.

The council now wants the bowling club to move and as an incentive, it will forgive the loan.

As ratepayers, we strongly object to this use of our (and all ratepayers’) money.

Councillors seem to think they can do what the like with the council revenue without consultation with the community.

Remember how much money they lost in the global economic downturn of 2007-08.
