Min. No. 306 RESOLVED (Councillors Furolo/Eisler)

THAT

  1. The draft Vision for local government in NSW developed at the Destination 2036 event be supported.
  2. The removal of rate pegging, the pursuit of new financing models, stronger resource sharing arrangements through Regional Organisations of Councils, and the review of the Local Government Act to provide greater clarity of core responsibilities be nominated as priorities for the draft Action Plan.
  3. Workshops on Destination 2036 be held at appropriate times.

During debate on the above item, the Mayor, Councillor Furolo, vacated the Chair at 8.46 p.m. and the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Kritharas, assumed the Chair.
The Mayor, Councillor Furolo, resumed the Chair at 9.12 p.m.

Explanation
I amended the motion to add the third point: Workshops on Destination 2036 be held at appropriate times.
I believe all Councillors should have had an opportunity to have an input into Destination 2036. The first Conference only included non elected General Managers and Mayors. There was not an opportunity for Councillors to discuss topics before the Conference, rather we were given a fait accompli document. This is too important a topic for all elected Councillors not to have a say in any future discussions.
