Dinner Plain Alliance pushes its demands

DINNER Plain ratepayers want heads to roll over an ongoing dispute with Alpine Council.

DINNER Plain ratepayers want heads to roll over an ongoing dispute with Alpine Council.

A group known as the Dinner Plain Alliance – an amalgam of the chamber of commerce, Dinner Plain business operator society and Action for Dinner Plain – is calling for a change of management and personnel running the village for the council.

It is one of four demands that will be tabled with council chief executive Dave Barry next week.

The others will call for a ratepayer subsidised bus service to be scrapped, a full audit on how the money they contribute to a special rate has been spent and a review of the general rate.
