Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 4th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 5, 2009 23 OPINION WRITE TO US MAIL: The Editor Inner-West Weekly, 181 First Ave, Five Dock, 2046. FAX: 9018 3531 EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org Letters should be kept brief. Name, address and phone num- ber must be supplied. Letters are submitted on condition that Cumberland Newspapers, as publisher of the Inner-West Weekly, may edit and has the right to reproduce in electronic form and communicate these letters. CONDITIONS Put footpaths first Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy points out the problem. It is difficult to comprehend the decisions made by the council and councillors in Ashfield. On January 15 your paper published an article in re- lation to dangerous footpaths in Dudley St, Haberfield (the rest of the footpaths in Ashfield are no better). The article also quoted a council spokesperson say- ing that there are ''no funds to fix the footpaths''. At the same time the council is advertising for someone to lend them $10 million for the totally unnecessary new civic centre. If council does not have the funds to repair the footpaths and maintain the infrastructure (their main function) how are they ex- pected to service the mass- ive loan they are intent on borrowing? Residents pay their rates and are entitled to safe footpaths. We should not need petitions for basic works to be done. Quite simply, one does not borrow to build an exten- sion on their home if the roof is leaking. Does council think park- ing fines and more rate rises are the way to operate? I publicly challenge the 12 councillors and general manager to hold a public meeting to justify their de- cisions. There are many serious issues that need answering and explained. If they are confident they are doing the right thing for the residents and munici- pality, they will take up the challenge. Julie Passas Ashfield Fountain fan The removal of the fountain in Strathfield Square (IWW, Jan 22 and 29) would be a retrograde step. When sit- ting outside enjoying a drink the fountain provides an atmosphere that gives you a feeling of being in a top-class European capital city like Paris, Rome, etc. The fountain has im- proved the landscape in Strathfield Square and is now a focal point compared to the previous emptiness.
