Submissions against the amalgamation of shires and councils in NSW close today.
In January, Murray Shire Council announced it was stepping up the fight to stop a merger with Deniliquin Council and Conargo Shire, inviting residents to get involved.
At a council meeting on January 21, councillors asked the ratepayers be given a chance to make submissions to the NSW Division of Local Government.
Cr Geoff Mackenzie said ratepayers needed an opportunity to have a say.
His fellow councillors were in agreement.
A classified advertisement which ran in the Riv and appeared on the shire’s website gave information about the Independent Local Government Review’s final report and what it recommends for the area.
Murray Shire Council has vehemently opposed the idea of amalgamating with other councils, with mayor Tom Weyrich saying it would be a detriment to the area.
A copy of the ILGRP report can be accessed from the NSW Division of Local Government’s website www.dlg.nsw.gov.au.
Submissions can be made to the NSW Division of Local Government by via email at email@example.com.
