The Minutes of the council meeting on 25 January 2011 state falsely that a report will be issued concerning public health issues associated with the proposed drain in the Central Road area.
The Minutes record correctly that Ms Cheryl Hardy asked councillors whether the council has conducted a study into public health issues associated with the proposed drain in the Central Road area (see 'Councils compel residents to subsidise a developer" [26 January] on this blog). However, the Minutes then record that Mr. David McArthur answered that, 'The report in relation to public health issues will be made available.' This isn't a true record of events. Mr McArthur stated that no such study had been done and so there was no report.
This is another desperate attempt to justify the highly contentious 'Special Charge' of many thousands of dollars that councillors voted unanimously on 25 January to levy on each household in the Central Road area.
