Letter | Swing into action now, not in 12 months’ time

A LIBERTY Swing for Bathurst sounds like a great idea.

However, waiting for the money (a reported $20,000) to be allocated in the Bathurst Regional Council budget to erect the swing is not a great idea!

Council could spend the money now instead of waiting 12 months to budget for the spend. Surely we could forego $500 (i.e. the interest council would earn on our – ratepayers - money whilst waiting for the budget to kick in).

In the past council has been very considerate of those with a disability. It would be nice to see that outlook continue.

Install the Liberty Swing now and let the fun begin.
