Those who voted for the project to be scrapped at the council meeting yesterday were Crs Koh, Cooper, Halliday, Wilson and Prvanov. All the rest voted for it to continue, in the interim at least. It’s very disappointing but not particularly surprising. It looks like the squandering of Ratepayer money that councils over the last 15 years have been notorious for will continue under this one. At least the vote in favour of this white elephant at 6-5 is smaller than the 7-4 it had in the last council.
