Home Hill News


THE dyslectic gremlins found their way into our pages in the July issue of the Home Hill News, as a transposition of numbers gave the wrong impression on the rate rise claimed by the council in their annual budget announcement. 

While the front page told the correct story, announcing a 2.5 per cent rate rise in the general rate, the heading on the turnover on page 11 turned the rise into 5.2 per cent—not something ratepayers would have been happy to see. 

We hope our readers took note of the initial part of the story and did not put much credence on our error later in the report?
