Tom Elliott stunned by Moreland City Council spend
3AW Drive host Tom Elliott has been left stunned after a Moreland City councillor revealed roughly 75% of the money it raised each year in rates was spent on salaries.
Cr Oscar Yildiz told 3AW Drive the council took in roughly $90 million each year in rates.
He said $67 million of that paid for council salaries, leaving less than $25 million to be spent elsewhere.
‘I don’t think we’re as efficient as we can be,’ Cr Yildiz admitted.
‘There’s a lot of wastage.
‘We need to tighten the belt.’
