The Tipperary Suspension Bridge

Posted by David Christmas on October 28, 2010 at 4:27 AM Comments comments (0)

Have a look at the photo's of a suspension bridge here in Mt Morgan

it's a disgrace to the town and the Rockhampton City Council there

was a write up the the Rockhampton Morning Bulletin this morning

the 28/10/10 where the Mayor Brad Carter said we should accept

a rate rise to fix it we did not vote for him the Queensland Goverment

let Rockhampton Council take over Mount Morgan and Yeppoon

Council's and kicked the Mount Morgan Mayor out and took over i wonder

where all our rate money is going ?? i pay just over $2000 a year

and don't see any thing for my money ? council worker's stole

some mesh from me the other day..Mount Morgan Council

used to once a year pick up rubbish from outside your house

if you could not take it to the dump Rockhampton Council soon

stopped that now i have a heap of rubbish in my back yard

since i don't own a car or trailer it just has to sit there so much

for my rate money if Rockhampton was so happy to take over

then they have what goes with it..the Mayor went to Japan a few

week's ago $2000 to $5000 he should have put the money

towards the bridge and not gone oversea's wish i had the

money to visit Japan, the photo's of the bridge are on the photo

page of this web site.
