Council killing off Fremantle?

Why would Fremantle council want to discourage people from attracting visitors to Fremantle. Sounds a bit strange the Mayor Brad Pettitt wants to make it more difficult or expensive for people to attract visitors to our city.Just another example of this Fremantle council doing what it can to kill off Fremantle business, I thought more people staying in Freo would be a good thing, clearly council is against it
