Tom gives in!
It was good to see that this week the Treasurer, Tom Koutsantonis , bowed to pressure from both federal and local government and agreed to make up the $190 shortfall that they have traditionally paid, with federal government support to pensioners. However, this will not be taken directly from eligible persons rates notice but by way of a direst grant. Some will lose the benefit and a few others will gain.
