Waste so­lu­tion mo­tions

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s Gen­eral Man­ager Adrian But­ler, Mayor Pat Bourke and Deputy Mayor Shaun Whitechurch will meet to for­mally sub­mit mo­tions to the Lo­cal Govern­ment NSW Board ac­cord­ingly.

One such mo­tion will be the is­sue of waste en­ter­ing wa­ter­ways, as sug­gested by Cr Bron­wyn Thomas at coun­cil’s monthly meet­ing on Au­gust 21.

“The rub­bish in the lake (Lake Mul­wala) was re­ally no­tice­able,” she said, fol­low­ing the re­cent emp­ty­ing of the lake.

The an­nual con­fer­ence is to be held in Al­bury from Sun­day Oc­to­ber 21 to Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 23.

“It is the pre-em­i­nent event of the Lo­cal Govern­ment year where lo­cal coun­cil­lors come to­gether to share ideas and de­bate is­sues that shape the way LGNSW then sets pol­icy to lobby State and Fed­eral Govern­ments over the next 12 months,” Mr But­ler said.

Mr But­ler and Crs Bourke and Whitechurch, along with all other coun­cil­lors, will rep­re­sent Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil at the con­fer­ence.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil has au­tho­rised its Gen­eral Man­ager to be a mem­ber of the Mur­ray Dar­ling As­so­ci­a­tion Au­thor­ity’s Strate­gic Ad­vi­sory SubCom­mit­tee which as­sists in devel­op­ing board pol­icy.

The sub­ject of sus­tain­able waste so­lu­tions for re­gions – plas­tic bags, green waste, and re­new­able/al­ter­na­tive en­ergy in­clud­ing waste for en­ergy – will be raised at the 2018 Lo­cal Govern­ment NSW An­nual Con­fer­ence.
