Not another two way street debacle

The editor,

The Corporation of the City of Whyalla employs people based upon qualifications, expertise and experience in areas relevant to their employment position.

Council members are an extremely dedicated board, elected based on their nomination, their passion for the city and number of votes attained.

With respect to tree selection for Whyalla, my understanding is that an in depth process was undertaken by people employed to have relevant qualifications and/or a wealth of experience in this area.

Issues such as aesthetics, water usage, relevance to the current Whyalla landscape plan, suitability to our local environment etc. were considered at length.

Species were selected and recommendations were made to the council.

Discussion ensued, the chief executive officer engaged landscape consultants and our council, including Mr Carter, voted on and adopted the recommendations of the consultants.

Since then there has been a barrage of articles through the media from councillor Carter opposing the decisions made by council.

How about we give some credit to the process and the people employed to have relevant expertise and let a project plan run to completion for a change.

Let’s not have another two way, one way, two way street debacle, and lumber ratepayers with additional costs of changing a project midstream.

I certainly wouldn’t dream of telling Mr Carter how to run a successful business installing floor coverings.
