Public Meeting 10 June: No Forced Amalgamations
PUBLIC MEETING – Petersham Town Hall Wednesday 10 June 7.30pm
Come to the public meeting organised by Marrickville Council to hear why Marrickville is better off NOT amalgamating and why the State Government’s amalgamation process is FLAWED.
The NSW Government wants Marrickville to amalgamate with Canada Bay, Ashfield, Burwood, Leichhardt and Strathfield – even though an overwhelming majority of the Marrickville community has said “NO” to amalgamation. Importantly also – detailed business modelling has been conducted by Council which clearly shows that Marrickville will be much worse off financially if amalgamated. We stand to lose the LOCAL in local government and the sense of COMMUNITY in Marrickville.
