Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

IN the July is­sue No 4 of the Penin­su­lar News­let­ter put out by the City of South Perth, the Mayor has in­formed us of the fol­low­ing mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing.

Mayor Do­herty said she was pleased to an­nounce that the City of South Perth and Town of Vic­to­ria Park have signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing that com­mits both coun­cils to a for­malised work­ing re­la­tion­ship and part­ner­ship for a pe­riod of at least three years.

As neigh­bour­ing coun­cils, it makes ab­so­lute sense to work closely to­gether on projects and is­sues that will im­pact res­i­dents and ratepay­ers in both com­mu­ni­ties, Mayor Do­herty said.

Mayor Do­herty, along with Ge­off Glass, City of South Perth chief ex­ec­u­tive, and Town of Vic­to­ria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan and chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta signed the agree­ment.

The City of South Perth Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion Inc wishes to con­grat­u­late both Mayor Do­herty and Mayor Vaughan for tak­ing this ini­tia­tive.

With both coun­cils co-op­er­at­ing and work­ing to­gether, this can only be of great fi­nan­cial ben­e­fit to all ratepay­ers and res­i­dents. CE­CILIA BROOKE, chair­women, City of South Perth Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion Inc.
