Cootamundra electorate mayors air issues

NSW Upper House Member Mick Vietch has commended council representatives who contributed to yesterday’s Mayoral Roundtable in Temora, held to discuss a range of issues facing local councils in the Cootamundra electorate.

Mr Vietch attended alongside Shadow Local Government Minister Peter Primrose, and says the councils were very honest and forthright, and that the discussion will help inform Labor's policy heading into next year's state election.

Among the topics discussed were issues arising from the implementation of Joint Organisations of Councils, finances and cost-shifting by the State and Federal Governments, council amalgamations and how a de-amalgamation would work, and the constitutional recognition of local government.
