The cars that ate Lismore

WHO needs 53 cars?

That's how many Lismore City Council has in their fleet of staff cars.

I can understand if for their job they have to travel across the region, but why do general staff need cars?

In my opinion, they don't.

Sometimes I walk to work - I live close to work so that makes it easier.

But why can't council staff live closer to work and walk?

I'm sure they could all benefit from the exercise - as could we all.

And it would save a heck of a lot of money - then council might be able to afford that art gallery after all!

What do you think?
