On this dark, cloudy, rainy day, i thought it appropriate to expand on one of the key issues that I stand for: better communication between Council and our community. Clear away the clouds.
Quality information needs to be more accessible and effective two-way communication between Council and our community actually needs to happen.
* generic responses are simply not good enough if our community has taken the time to research, participate in consultation or present to council.
* get Q&A documents out for all major issues affecting our district and make these easily accessible - we shouldn't have to spend hours online trying to find information.
* communicate constantly and at the right time.
The existing breakdown in communication between Council and our community needs to change urgently. We live in a special place, and we all have a right to be better informed on issues and decisions that affect our home.
