Weed service outrage

GRANT District Council has foreshadowed it will undertake weed spraying activities amid the region’s environmental body planning to dump its fee-for-service operations by the end of March.

The decision by the South East Natural Resources Management Board has sparked a backlash from the local government body and farming community.

Fears have been raised the situation could lead to a resurgence of damaging weeds across the region.

Council has also raised frustrations the board is planning to dispose of surplus plant and machinery through a tender process.

This is despite regional councils gifting machinery to the board for these activities some years ago.

At council’s full

NRM massively increased it charges to rural landowners over that last 2 years. They seem unaccountable to anybody. Charge more and offer less…………..a typical quasi government response.
