Murray Shire Councillors will reach a decision today about Moama Market's request to operate on Good Friday.March 4, 2014 4:22am
The licensee of Moama Market is asking Murray Shire Council for permission to operate on Good Friday.
Max Brown has operated the market at the lawns near Kerrabee Soundshell for many years and has a two-year licence with council to host 27 markets each year on weekends or public holidays.
Mr Brown has asked council to allow an extra market this year on April 18, to allow volunteers to raise more money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday appeal.
Council staff have recommended councillors approve the request and donate the money it charges Mr Brown to operate on the public land, $420, to the appeal.
Councillors will decide on the request at today's meeting at Moama from 1pm.
