  1. No you got it right Ed. Well according to the 19 May 2018 Coffs Coast Advocate on page 12 that is.

    Fifty three other regional NSW councils think joining together to at least try and get some economies of scale is a good idea for their ratepayers and at least two, the Coffs Harbour City Council (CHCC) and the Nambucca Shire Council, don’t agree.

    Like mushrooms the ratepayers of the CHCC at least are ‘kept in the dark and fed the proverbial’ as to why our Council’s ‘wisdom’ is better than that of the 53 other regional councils.

    The words ‘lonely shag on a rock’ together with that grand old Greek word, ‘hubris’, spring to mind in regards to the CHCC on this one. I’m really not sure where Nambucca is coming from. But Bellingen thinks both those Councils are wrong.

    In my opinion we are extremely poorly served by more than a few senior CHCC staff and some Councilors too.
