Ed, So CVC wants to slug its ratepayers with 8% increase in rates for 5 years (Fit for the Future). Council should be aware that: 1. Pensioners don’t get an 8% increase each year. 2. Many villages have already been slugged with over 100% increase for sewage connection. 3. It is ridiculous to ask people in Iluka to comment on South Grafton saleyards. The same comment applies to most of the flawed survey. Whoever is making the decisions should rethink. John Callaghan, Iluka
