What services do you believe are most important for the Territory? Improving Canberra's recycling efforts and waste disposal - more education on recycling and upgrading the yellow bins on what items can go in recycling bins and where to go for items that cannot go in the yellow bins
More recycling efforts at community places

Improved public transportation - the new proposed bus network will not solve this issue as you are taking away the most used services which will result in more cars on the road

Improving the operation of Canberra bus practices - I see countless buses parked all around Canberra with the engines idling - sometimes with a driver behind the wheel, most the time unmanned - how many emissions do these idling buses produce? not only that how can ACT Govt allow a driver to leave a vehicle operating unmanned this is extremely dangerous and should be stopped immediately.

Improving services at the public hospitals - including less wait times and improving the hospitals waste management - everything is disposal once use items - the pills dispersal is a new plastic container up to 5 times a day, the water is in plastic bottles with plastic cups - the hospital food service has only plastic knifes, forks and spoons - even the bed curtains are plastic and disposable!

Get rid of Canberra's Crown leases - make ACT have 100% land ownership

Get rid of Land Tax in the ACT

Improve Canberra roads and put up animal barriers or walls on main traffic ways such as the parkway or the highways
How can the Government deliver current services more efficiently or in ways that better meet the needs of our community?Listen to the community and make consultation periods more transparent to the general public - most people are unaware that consultation rounds are open

Reduce rates and rego fees - why do we pay so much? your 'rates explained' graph was not useful

Explain more why the ACT is taxed and operates differently such as Land Tax and Crown leases
Are there particular services that you think the Government should stop delivering or should deliver in a different way?Stop wasting so much money on bike routes and making the roads bike friendly

Stop wasting money on speed humps in suburban streets - install more 24 hour speed cameras as these are more effective and have less damage to cars. ACT Govt operated buses constantly damage speed humps and taxpayers are sick of paying for the repairs!!
What new ideas, services or programs should the Government consider to meet emerging or evolving community needs?get rid of Canberra's Crown leases - make ACT have 100% land ownership

Become the first waste free state/territory by focusing on waste initiatives

reduce the number of apartments in Canberra and introduce more nature reserves/corridors

Aim to get more cars off the road - We focus a lot on renewable energy to counterbalance our emissions however Canberra can do much more to be actual emissions free
