IT IS 15 months since Joshua Morris, a local Liberal member of State Parliament, demanded via this newspaper that Labor premier Daniel Andrews relocate the state headquarters of VicRoads from Kew in Melbourne's east to Ballarat.
THE City of Ballarat has continually underfunded their Home and Community Care (HACC) program and the revelation that Meals on Wheels (a related service) is to be outsourced to a Dandenong business is baffling and damaging to our local economy.
