TALKING TO A MACHINE
In what appears to be a first for the region, when you ring Blayney Shire Council you'll now first speak to a machine instead of a real person.
A local resident, who wish to remains anonymous for personal reasons, told the Blayney Chronicle if you phone 6368 2104 you will be greeted by a man regurgitating an automated message.
The woman said when she rung bigger councils including Cowra, Orange, Bathurst and Cabonne, she was greeted by a real person.
"I wonder how much this cost the council and why they need to do it given they're such a small council," she said.
"Being a small council facing amalgamation, you'd think their personalised service would be something they pride themselves on but with this it's just gone out the window.
"The funny thing is that after you get through the stupid message and press the button you want, you probably end up speaking to the same person who would have answered the phone in the first place anyway."
