Quote of the Day:

"You can agree or disagree with the sort of job council and its officers are doing but - and this is my fourth term - I have never once ever witnessed, nor suspected, a council officer of deliberately misrepresenting the truth to everybody, either in verbal or written form and allegations of this form of Dr Hucker I find personally offensive and there is no place for it." - Ararat Rural City Council Mayor Cr Paul Hooper on accusations of misrepresentation and fraud by a ratepayer.
