Special Council Meeting was a waste of time.
Special Council Meeting was a waste of time.

Results of Special Council meeting this morning at the Links.

This morning a Special Council Meeting was called by our municipality. The meeting was supposed to start at 9am but, as usual, the meeting started almost an hour late!

Only 6 residents attended the meeting as it was announced very late and most people were unaware of it. The council resolved to possibly hold another meeting next week to allow more residents to attend.

No residents were allowed to ask questions or participate so the traffic was one-way, all from the council.

The Mayor was also there but he did not say a word through-out the whole meeting – not one! He was applauded for coming out to look at the fire on Sunday evening.

Firstly, the council expressed their sympathy for the loss suffered and then proceeded to remind residents that it was not only the affluent people of St Francis who had suffered a loss….there were also 70 odd domestic workers who had lost their jobs. They also pointed out that residents in poorer rural areas also had to do without some basic services. (?!)

The council had also got wind of the Friends of St Francis Fire & Rescue Trust which had been set up and offered their expertise to manage this fund.

The council also informed residents that their budget has been exhausted and therefore has been closed for the year – this means that they cannot spend any more money on Fire and Emergency services this year.

The meeting got off the ground at 9-55 and finished by 10-25am.

According to one resident who attended, the meeting was an absolute waste of time.
