Another Drinking Ban?
May 14 2018
I read with disgust this week about our Mayor deciding to look at implementing an extension of the alcohol ban to now include Christmas Day this year! What is Queenstown coming to? Why do QLDC feel the need to treat the local rate payers as a bunch of children whom if they step “out of line” and actually enjoy themselves, should be met with yet another ban or restriction?
How much more co-towing towards tourists is there going to be before we crack? This town you may cry is built on tourism, but it is the 1000 local workers who celebrated Xmas last year that keep the conveyor belt well oiled! We pay your salary QLDC so why do you get to decide what is right or wrong for us?
Parking? = Banned, removed or so expensive you cant even consider meeting your local mates at a cafe for a spot of lunch. Crate Day? = Banned, Xmas 2017? = Extension of liquor ban. St Patrick’s Day? = Talk of an alcohol ban for 2019. We only just about managed to get Regaee in the Park approved on Waitangi Day. (No records of trouble or littering though from this event so guess not media worthy) And now Christmas Day!!??
QLDC have a hard enough time maintaining a positive relationship with the public - cancelling Christmas Day in the bay? Perhaps JB would like to share his address and folks can celebrate on his estate if he so concerned. Get a grip Scroodge.
QLDC have declined to comment
