Q&A

  • Pensioners, wage earners, farmers cannot get increased income on demand to balance their budgets . We work within it as best we can. Why does not this policy apply to SVC. It seems Tumut hasn't been able to do this for a very long time. I object to any special rate variation above the CPI.

  • Have the council got plans to close down all children's services in the tumbarumba area

    LYNETTE WILESMITH asked 5 months ago

    Thanks you for your inquiry, there are no current plans to close any children services. Council is reviewing all services to identify and create efficiencies going forward.

  • Dear sir or madam i read in the Tumbarumba Times that this shire may be going into debt of up to $4 Million,well i am disgusted,stunned that before Tumba Shire was one of the wealthiest in NSW what has happened to all the money, i know that i will get some bullshit reply (hopefully)how the money was spent in the Tumba area but i cannot see it,but next election we just vote out the current councillors and they go on their merry way never to be seen or heard of again .

  • I would like to know where the 4 million dollars has gone,if the finance team is that incompetent they should be sacked, obviously incapable of doing there job,this also reflects on management at all levels. Another cocern is the talk of major rate rises ,this is disgusting if you have a budget stay in it ,stop wasting money on unnecessary projects How safe are the employees in the tumbarumba workforce,are they marked for dismissal.

  • I am concerned about the bad financial management of the SVC. I object to rate increase above CPI, I am a pensioner and finances are stretched most of the time.i do not think staff and services should be cut or assets sold off and the establishing of business units, this ends up costing more in the long run than employing council staff. I think it is time to cut out wasteful spending and get budget back in black ,if Tumbarumba could do it why not SVC, you have even gone through all our finances the were in the black. I have no confidence at all in the management of SVC.

  • Hi Wondering why Batlow has not used the big Apple over the years? I think it would be great to have this moved to town somewhere and used as a tourist information spot. Or have it built up on a post and used as a photo attraction for tourists (like Stanthorpe has). It would be a shame to see this just rot away in a paddock. I look forward to your response in my suggestion. Regards Charmaine Lynch

    Charmaine Lynch asked 10 months ago

    Hi Charmaine, thanks for your suggestions regarding the big Apple in Batlow. 

    While the big apple is not a Council asset (it is privately owned) we have passed your feedback onto our Tourism team for reference.

    We held our tourism branding workshops last week in Batlow, and we hope you had a chance to go along and see what is being developed.

    Cheers

    SVC
