RE: Winburndale Water Controversy Is Far From Over (letter, July 24)
I must be incorrect in my thinking as to the responsibilities of elected councillors and council staff.
I could have sworn that councillors and council staff were ultimately responsible to the ratepayers of their local government area.
With Bathurst Regional Council's stoppage of water flow to the Winburndale without consultation and/or explanation, I have learned that the ratepayer has no place in council decision-making.
Thank you, Bathurst council, for letting me know that.
