LETTERS: How to fix the footpaths. AND: How many more children with foetal alcohol syndrome will be born?

Sir – I am looking forward to the upcoming council elections.

Along with all the other items on the "to do" list for everyone, could the footpath program be upgraded a bit?

Old Eastside residents have paid rates since 1971 (council's birth), not to mention other areas of town.

If this is not possible, maybe $2000 could be added to the sale price of houses to pay for a footpath outside the "sold" houses, so that the new residents won't have to bother the council (when they get 'round to that street).

If this happened a couple of years ago there would be a lot less work for the council (when all the people left town).

This would free up council to spend he rates in a better way.

Could you publish candidates' pone contacts, please? [ED – you will find them here, Mr Petersen]
