Wow, can u imagine a bigger spun scenario than what we see on the city of Fremantle’s website today?
These questions have been asked since OCTOBER 2104. Now all of a sudden, after months of questions from residents, questions in parliament, dozens of blogs pages, letters to the editors, thinking allowed pieces, spun promo pieces on TV, coverage in both local papers, articles in business papers, etc, the city of Fremantle have posted a response to the questions raised. The same day the minister for Local Government has released his response to questions asked in parliament by Peter Tinley for the residents of Fremantle, whoah imagine that coincidence?
What the city of Fremantle has failed yet again to do is publish the questions asked, its great they publish a response to the questions asked, but does it really address the questions that where actually asked?
The business plan its self is hard enough to read to make sense how they got to their NPV, the response they have just given, isn’t any better.
The only things I got from the response which is nothing new, is that the delay is coming from lack of interest in attracting a mayor tenant.
- The city is not answering the questions asked?
- The city needs to revitalize the CBD and is struggling to it?
- We are losing a fair amount of revenue from the queensgate centre sitting mostly empty?
- The city must be putting allot of effort into the spin needed to drive along this process, i wonder how much this is costing the city?
- I see on blogs now that its the residents who are to blame for asking a question of the COF, instead of driving the department for housing to come to freo, is that clear, no, i didn’t get it either. Perhaps if the city was transparent the residents wouldn’t need to keep asking the same questions over and over again or for a real novelty actually answer the questions asked, could u imagine?
- Whats really amazing is that the city thought it more important to pander to a paper, whats more important than having some basic respect for the resident who first asked the questions, imagine putting PR ahead of common decency or putting first the rate payers and residents they are paid to represent, classic?
- Where did the $97million figure come from as that seems rather critical in forming a position for the NPV, who’s figure is it?
- Then again if they sent him their response maybe his first comment would be wheres the answers?
