Editorial cartoon: the Australian Services Union has questioned the spending priorities of the Baw Baw Shire as the council looks to cut staff to make savings.

First published in the 13 March edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.


The ASU has suggested expensive projects like the “refurbishment” of the council’s Drouin office and even the pay increase for CEO Helen Anstis should have been delayed to make the savings Ms Anstis has said the council needs to make.

Baw Baw mayor Debbie Brown, who has supported expensive council spending projects like the construction of a multi-million dollar outdoor pool in Warragul, has supported the CEO.

    The white elephant will be an embarrassment to our town in the days to come. People will ask how we could approve $13 million for a facility that will only be use three months a year. All those on the Council who agreed to it should be made to spend at least once a week swimming in it during the months of June, July and August.
