Trader shares Warrnambool parking proposal vision (January 9)
The problem is people want to park right in front of the shop.
There is ample parking in the off-street car parks that doesn’t get used.
Putting more parking on the highway isn’t going to solve the problem of people not wanting to walk more than a couple of metres to a shop.
Plus the green spine we have is a lovely welcome to Warrnambool.
Plug pulled on deafening event after flood of complaints (January 9)
Did anyone tell the oldies to turn their hearing aids down?
Such a selfish me, me,me generation with no consideration for others at all.
Concerts and music festivals are great but should take place in suitable venues and with reasonable and safe amplification.
Guess who will be the next batch of hearing impaired complainants.
Stupid place to have it considering there’s an old folks home right behind it.
Have some respect for the elders.
Free city centre parking concludes (January 9)
Just shop at Gateway Plaza, everything is out there and it's free.
So people tend to forget that the businesses need people to support them to survive and to be able to hire your children/grandchildren when they are looking for jobs.
The meters are not all that hard to work.
City’s ratepayer group says council survey on proposed rate rise “flawed” (January 7)
Of course it was.
The entire thing was written so the only possible outcomes were a rate rise or cutting services as these were council's preferred options.
The entire thing is geared so they can throw it back at rate payers when the outcome is implemented and say "but this is what you told us you wanted."
The survey doesn't allow answers relating to improving their efficiencies or cost-cutting measures outside these options because that's not want council wants to do.
Police appeal for driver patience as city traffic peaks (January 6)
My 10-year-old said to me the other day: ‘Mum why would they put crossings right next to the roundabout? All the cars get stuck there.’
He’s 10 and can work that out.
As a paramedic I cringe every time I drive down the main street.
It's the most ridiculous setup I have ever seen.
