councillors took the opportunity to debate lower rates for
farmers at the May 3 council meeting.
A motion to retain councils current rating structure was
recommended in a report tabled at the meeting.
Councillor Tatchell sparked debate by objecting to the
motion, with East Ward Councillor Jarrod Bingham adding

Councillor Tom Sullivan also agreeing that the categories

He definitely left a legacy. Now it is up to us to treasure it,
and make sure it gets used.
