I have written about doom and gloom and the issues facing councils across the district. To be sure, some of the financial issues facing councils this year are not pretty.
This week, though, I would like to talk about what challenges municipal governments will face should both the mill here be restarted and the gold mine north of Barwick go forward.
What would the economy be like if both projects move forward? What would it be like that rental vacancy was less than one percent? What would it be like if there were not enough classrooms in the district?
