LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Put a lid on those ‘willy nilly’ ideas

RECENTLY, Dominic Doblo has revisited an idea to create water dams in and around the Fitzroy basin.

Is he a paid consultant, hired by the council? What are his qualifications? How dare he come up with ideas that may benefit this region. And water of all things, I mean, this country has either too much or not enough of the wet stuff.

Really good to see that our "elected" politicians, have put down any of his ideas that may have merit. Could we imagine if everyone, just started coming up with these ideas, willy nilly?

Surely, the only good stuff that can come, happens after spending lotsa money on consultants, EIS's and HFR's at $15,000 dollars a pop, showing water height of last floods.

There is an example of wise spending, consultation, artistic bending, lovely waste, and of completely useless effort, that is needed and should be expected.

I say, "Dominic Doblo, You shut up. What do you know? We can do it very good without you. If you want a dam, then you should pay for it. So there."
