Letter to the Editor: Leader Newspaper - Leader gets it wrong

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: 26 May 2009

Leader should stop trying to break news based on leaked information if it can’t get the facts right.

Last week’s Berwick and Cranbourne Leader front page story ‘Rates on the rise’ has got it horribly wrong for Cranbourne’s Brookland Greens community saying that a ‘town hall source’ said the Council is waiving rates for these ratepayers for another 12 months.

Whilst Council’s draft 2009-10 Budget highlights a number of key projects in the Cranbourne area, it does not indicate that rates will be waived for Brookland Greens residents in 2009-10.
