Kangaroo grass seed bread, anyone? Producers at a Korumburra food forum were fascinated by Bruce Pascoe’s account of the potential of foods from Australia’s indigenous past.
Cr Les Larke wants to cut 46 council jobs to save money. But perhaps he should look at his own position first.
By Catherine Watson
LAST November, Les Larke was elected to Bass Coast Shire Council on a platform of fixing council finances by cutting waste.
His latest of several cost-cutting proposals is for the council to lay off 46 staff – 15 per cent of the total workforce – over the next three years. Those in the gun are “managers, co-ordinators, supervisors and team leaders” – pretty much anyone in charge of anyone else, whom Cr Larke clearly regards as providing little value for money to the community.
