This idea of continuing with the construction of Bunjil Place is nothing but a quick rush for getting new offices for the council.
The survey conducted is just an eyewash.
How can a council with a population of 288,000 people ever think of such a humongous project with a survey of 82 per cent of 500 phone and online surveys – ridiculous!
This project is to cost $125 million and only $10 million funding received from the Federal Government and begging the State Government for another handout.
This City of Casey Council is going bonkers.
$25.5 million added in the 2015-2016 budget, (we are sure that not every ratepayer is aware of this sly addition in the budget) when the ex-mayor (Geoff Ablett) confidently said that there will not be any increase in the rates.
Now this huge building, Bunjil Place, is to cost us ratepayers the balance of $115 million. Why?
Stop this from going any further. Ratepayers unite, challenge the City of Casey council.
It is time that this council is made accountable for the misuse of ratepayers’ money.
We have petitioned Her Majesty The Queen to look into the issue of this illegal creation of local governments by the states and territories without a referendum of the people.
Dunstan Girton and Louis Kotsiras,
Hampton Park.
