But mayor Catherine Cumming denies local cyclists are being dudded, accusing BNV of "wearing its helmets too tight".
Cr Cumming said BNV's figures were at odds with the council's own figures on spending and failed to tell the whole picture. "The council number crunchers said we are around the four or five-dollar mark. In the full context of the past 15 years, we are right up there."
Cr Cumming said the figures failed to include money attracted from the state and federal governments. "This means we are only spending on what we need."
I haven't had time to read into the BiXE report yet... anyone know why the council is saying its spending is much higher than what BNV is reporting?
