I read with great disbelief that CVC has been fined for a repeat offence for cutting down a sacred aboriginal tree.
I ask CVC why would you go and cut down a tree that you have already in the past been fined for.
This to me is blatant disregard for the aboriginal people’s beliefs. In the past year council asked for submissions of how to save money and they do this; a fine of a total of according to newspapers of $348,000.
Does the CVC expect the rate payers of this shire cover their stupidity?
… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it.
For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
