Consultants too costly
WHEN will council officials stop hiding behind the advice of expensive outside consultants (The Press, March 12)?
They are admitting they are not up to doing the jobs they are handsomely paid to do. Statements such as, “We need to supplement our in-house capacity to communicate progress” and we need to “utilise external expertise with value for money in mind” are straight from the book of public-service gobbledygook.
These words from one of the council’s directors are prime examples of the mind-set of public officials who are not in the real world because of their indulged positions.
Not to worry, there is the inexhaustible supply of taxpayers’ money to fund their whims.
