Extravagant council members?

Crazy credit spree, according the the headlines in today’s Herald Sun by council members. Well, I can think of one solution to solve this; set a hard credit limit for the combination of credit cards. Better, credit limit for the entire financial year. Therefore, once the limit is reached, they can’t spend more.

In my opinion, as long as they don’t spend beyond the budget … I’m okay with it. How they decide to spend their budget is their business … I mean someone elected these people, right? Although spending $1300 per night on a hotel room is an extreme.

I did some calculation … $132056.64 divided by 58 cards comes to about $2277 per card per year. I can simply assume there are some responsible card holders in the council as well as some irresponsible ones.
