Will You Stop This Madness?

Markets Madness

Did you know that Fremantle Markets, owned by council, is the Fremantle 
ratepayers’ biggest income earning asset, generating over $3 million a year?
Did you know that Brad Pettitt and 6 councillors gave the Markets to FMPL for 18 years in 2008 with no public tender process? Crs Lauder and Dowson voted against the controversial lease, and MP Adele Carles sought a government enquiry.
Did you know that of the $3 million generated each year, only 26% goes to council?
Did you know that the 2008 Conservation plan for the Markets said $4.5 million was needed to fix them up, but less than $1m has been spent in 12 years?
Did you know that the Markets now need at least $5.6 million in repairs, but council intends to give FMPL another long lease in a month’s time?
Did you know that if Council had run the Markets since 2008,  they would have received over $30 million, enought to wipe out council’s massive current debt?
You can stop this madness by telling the mayor and councillors NOT to give another lease to FMPL and lose 74% of market income.
