Meeting backs Mosman independencePosted Tuesday 27 October 2015
Following the release of IPART’s report, and accompanying report card, which found Mosman Council fit financially and strategically but overall unfit according to its scale criterion, the State Government will soon announce the fate of NSW Councils.
Metropolitan Councils such as Mosman are in the firing line of Local Government ‘reforms’ as the State Government has indicated that it proposes to merge local Councils and has also asked Councils to provide up to three merger preferences by 18 November 2015.
Mosman Council has again been engaging its community in the lead-up to the deadline prior to formally determining its response to the NSW Government.
Close to 300 residents attended a public meeting on 26 October 2015 to show their continued support for Mosman’s independence. A survey regarding potential amalgamations was also conducted between 26 October and 3 November; the results of which will be available on this website soon.
Council will determine its response to the NSW Government at its meeting of 10 November 2015.
