I wish to object to an increase in the allowances and renumeration for Mayors and councillors.
We are in a pandemic and there should be no increase. An increase simply doesn't meet community standards in these dire ecomonic condirions.
The community is struggling. Businesses are going bust due to no fault of their own. Many in the community are struggling both financially and mentally.
In these trying conditions, to award increases to Mayors and councillors allowances would send the wrong message. Those who continue to hold onto their jobs should be grateful.
These are not normal times. The public is struggling and the fact that the public pay the allowances for Mayors and councillors should not be forgotten.
