The government are not being truthful in how they are explaining the new Alcohol Protection Orders (APOs), claiming that the previous Banned Drinkers Register (BDR) only banned people from purchasing take-away alcohol, says John Boffa (pictured), of the People's Alcohol Action Coalition in Alice Springs. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
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]
