CONDOLENCES               

 

Mr Tom Murphy – Clr Waller

 

Clr Waller read the condolences at the Council meeting for the passing of Mr Tom Murphy.

 

Tom Murphy was a very determined resident who volunteered a huge amount of his time on various committees, spending endless hours and giving up his personal time for the benefit of the community.  He always fully supported the committees he was involved in, attending their meetings, going from one committee to another, always being direct and speaking his mind, yet gaining the respect and support from residents, committee members, Council and State Government staff and achieving so much for so many.

 

An indication of the committees that Tom was involved in are listed below:

 

·         Miller Combined Pensioners as Vice President for over 24 years

·         Representative for Miller Combined Pensioners and the Combined Pensioners and Superannuation Association – CPSA

·         Heckenberg Hall Committee

·         Liverpool District Neighbourhood Centre Association – LDNCA / Liverpool Connections

·         Seniors Network

·         Foundation member of Over 50’s Group for Heckenberg and Busby together with his wife Eileen

·         Green Valley Precinct Committee for over 10 years

·         Member of 2168 resident action group for over 10 years

·         Represented Paul Lynch, State member on Council’s Traffic Committee

 

Tom also attended Council’s Community Focus Group for over 15 years as well as Liverpool Transport Task Force, Local Traffic Committee for over 12 years and Council’s Neighbourhood and Community Forums for a number of years, raising local issues with Council for actioning and then reporting these outcomes back to the residents and local committees who relayed their concerns to him and always relied upon him.  He was well known within the community and always a very viable and very active member of all committees he was involved in and determined to achieve a lot for the community to the best of his ability, putting the needs of the community first. 

 

Council would like to acknowledge his contribution to the community and to Liverpool.

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Waller                 Seconded: Clr Stanley

 

That Council express its deepest condolences for the recent passing of Tom Murphy and a letter of condolence be sent to his family.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr Tom Murphy – Clr Stanley

 

Clr Stanley made the following comments about Mr Tom Murphy:

 

On Friday 18th July I along with my colleagues, Councillors Waller, Karnib, and Harle and the Member for Liverpool Hon Paul Lynch attended the funeral for Mr Tom Murphy. Mr Murphy was truly a member of his community serving on many Council and Community committees which have been detailed previously. Tom was passionate about what he believed in and was truly passionate about what he saw to be unfair or wrong.

 

Tom was born in Scotland on 24th June 1924 and died aged 89 on 13th July 2014. Tom left school at 14 and served an apprenticeship as a boiler maker until he joined the navy during World War Two. Tom was a Morse code operator and was able to translate Morse code in three languages, Japanese, German and English. During his service in the British Navy he made several trip to Australia and decided that if he got married and had children it was here that he would raise his family. He met his wife, Eileen in 1954 and made good his promise to move to Australia in 1961; moving to Busby in 1964 where he has lived ever since.

 

He joined the Labor party when he was 16 and it is through this organisation that I first met Tom almost 20 years ago. He has been active member of the party and of Council committee bringing issues that are raised with him by residents so that improvements could be made for the community in which he lived. He also served on the Liverpool Traffic committee until recently when ill health made this too difficult to continue. Tom is well known for his vigorous debates and forceful opinions on many topics.

 

I offer my sincere condolences to his wife Eileen, and Tom’s children, grandchildren and great grandchildren at this time.

 

 

 

 

Marc Arcuri

 

Mayor Mannoun read the condolences at the Council meeting for the passing of Marc Arcuri.

 

Marc Arcuri passed away on 19 July 2014 after suffering a suspected heart attack whilst playing for Austral soccer club at WV Scott Memorial Park in Austral.

 

Marc was a gentle, kind loving and caring young man who always saw the good in others. The happiness and kindness he brought will always be cherished.

 

Marc’s love for football was one of his favourite pass times and he will be sadly missed. His loss has not only affected his family but the lives of many people, his team, mates, friends and the entire community.

 

Gone too soon, Marc will always be remembered. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Mayoral Minute

Subject: Malaysian Airlines flight MH17

 

On 17 July, a routine international flight Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine, with the loss of all 298 passengers and crew on board including 36 passengers who called Australia home. 193 Dutch, 43 Malaysian, 12 Indonesian and 10 British nationals were also lost in the tragedy along with passengers from Belgium, Germany, Canada, New Zealand and the Philippines. Eighty of the passengers were children.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those lost on flight MH17. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the investigators and the officers sent to protect and negotiate the return of victims’ bodies.

 

It is apparent that the Australian government is doing the utmost to ensure that human dignity is preserved and that the investigation is carried out thoroughly, with the rigour expected by the Australian people and the international community, and for that they are to be commended.

 

At a time of conflict around the globe and not just in the Ukraine, the indiscriminate violent shooting down of a routine civilian flight and the loss of innocent lives reminds us all of the fragility and precious nature of life.

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That Council observes a one minute silence in honour of victims of MH17.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

 


 

Clr Balloot returned to the Chambers at 6.57pm

 

Mayoral Minute

Subject: Sponsorship request to support the Pioneers Mega Crew

 

Council has been approached by the Street University – Ted Noffs Foundation seeking   sponsorship for the Pioneers Dance Crew who will represent Australia in the Mega Crew Division at the 2014 World Hip-Hop Championships in Las Vegas, USA. The Championships run from August 5-10, 2014. A shortfall of $10,000 to fund the tour currently exists and Council’s support has been sought to meet part of this funding gap.

 

The Pioneers Mega Crew is a socially and culturally inclusive dance group and consists of 20 youth aged between 10 and 22. The members of the crew have suffered from disadvantage and marginalisation. The Crew is based out of the Street University’s premises at 1 Speed Street, Liverpool.

 

The Pioneers were the feature act at the July Liverpool Night Markets and have also indicated their willingness to perform at other events, for example the upcoming Mayoral Ball.

 

As the Crew will be performing in the USA in early August, I have brought forward this request for sponsorship as an urgent item for consideration by Council.

 

I propose that sponsorship of $5000 be provided by Council to meet part of the Street University’s funding shortfall for the participation of the Pioneers Mega Crew in the World Hip Hop Championships. 

 

The request is consistent with Council’s Corporate Sponsorship guidelines through its community and social development and cultural development objectives. Particular benefits from sponsoring this activity include:

 

·         International exposure for Liverpool as a place of excellence for hip-hop and street dance

·         Local media exposure for Liverpool and Council’s partnership  with the Street University

·         Social benefits in instilling confidence in young people based in Liverpool and providing  them with life skills and linkages to employment and educational pathways

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That Council provides sponsorship of $5000 from the Councillor Reserve to the Street University toward the costs of the Pioneers Mega Crew’s participation in the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas from 5 August – 10 August, 2014.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

ITEM NO:      NOM 03

FILE NO:        164468.2014

SUBJECT:     Liquor Related Development Applications

 

NOTICE OF MOTION

 

1.   In order for Councillors to meet their due diligence and statutory obligations, Council and IHAP suspend consideration of DA (1454/2013) – Hume Hwy Hotel Casula until it obtains and provides Councillors with:

 

a)   Independent advice from the CEO of ILGA as to the capacity/obligations Councils have to consider the social impacts of liquor related developments. Is the consideration of the general social impact of liquor related DAs and s96 amendments the sole prerogative of OLGR or ILGA?

 

b)   Information from Police on the legal compliance record for all De Angelis group hotels, the number of alcohol reported incidents within each hotel and the number and type of alcohol related incidents that are linked to the hotels’ patrons after they leave those licensed premises (contained in COPS linking data).

 

c)   Advice from FACS as to their intentions for the ongoing provision of emergency/crisis public accommodation provided on site at the Fontainebleau Motel (or elsewhere) – location of the proposed Hume Hwy hotel.

 

d)   Advice from the owner and Council of the intended use of the heritage important Commercial Hotel – Liverpool if their liquor and poker machine licensees were to be removed to the proposed Hume Hwy hotel.

 

2.   Council notes that the substantial disproportionate negative social impact the introduction and operation of poker and other gambling machines can have on especially socially disadvantaged communities including migrants and person with English as a Second Language (ESL). In particular, that Liverpool LGA pub poker machines have the highest rate of return (losses to community) before tax in NSW (OLGR) and neighbouring Fairfield LGA has the worst rate of gambling losses in NSW.

 

To address this problem Council:

 

a)   Requests the NSW Premier to repeal s209 of the NSW Gaming Machines Act 2001 that precludes Councils from considering the social impact of poker machines imposed upon local communities when determining DA’s and related matters

 

 

 

 

 

 

b)   Requests the NSW Premier to provide local government (that is closest to local communities) the planning powers to consider and determine all aspects of the provision of poker machines and other gambling devices in their LGAs, and notes that this request is consistent with Goal “32” of the NSW State Plan 2021 “Increase the opportunity for people to participate in the way government makes decisions….. devolve decision making as close to the people and places affected by decisions”…

 

c)   Requests Local Government NSW (formerly the Local Government and Shires Associations of NSW (LGSA) to circulate this motion with a supportive discussion paper to all other Councils to gauge their level of support and response.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Harle                  Seconded: Clr Stanley

Liquor Related Development Applications

NOTICE OF MOTION

1.   In order for Councillors to meet their due diligence and statutory obligations, Council and IHAP suspend consideration of DA (1454/2013) – Hume Hwy Hotel Casula until it obtains and provides Councillors with:

 

a)   Independent advice from the CEO of ILGA as to the capacity/obligations Councils have to consider the social impacts of liquor related developments. Is the consideration of the general social impact of liquor related DAs and s96 amendments the sole prerogative of OLGR or ILGA?

 

b)   Information from Police on the legal compliance record for all De Angelis group hotels, the number of alcohol reported incidents within each hotel and the number and type of alcohol related incidents that are linked to the hotels’ patrons after they leave those licensed premises (contained in COPS linking data).

 

c)   Advice from FACS as to their intentions for the ongoing provision of emergency/crisis public accommodation provided on site at the Fontainebleau Motel (or elsewhere) – location of the proposed Hume Hwy hotel.

 

d)   Advice from the owner and Council of the intended use of the heritage important Commercial Hotel – Liverpool if their liquor and poker machine licensees were to be removed to the proposed Hume Hwy hotel.

 

2.   Council notes that the substantial disproportionate negative social impact the introduction and operation of poker and other gambling machines can have on especially socially disadvantaged communities including migrants and person with English as a Second Language (ESL). In particular, that Liverpool LGA pub poker machines have the highest rate of return (losses to community) before tax in NSW (OLGR) and neighbouring Fairfield LGA has the worst rate of gambling losses in NSW.

 

To address this problem Council:

 

a)   Requests the NSW Premier to repeal s209 of the NSW Gaming Machines Act 2001 that precludes Councils from considering the social impact of poker machines imposed upon local communities when determining DA’s and related matters

 

b)   Requests the NSW Premier to provide local government (that is closest to local communities) the planning powers to consider and determine all aspects of the provision of poker machines and other gambling devices in their LGAs, and notes that this request is consistent with Goal “32” of the NSW State Plan 2021 “Increase the opportunity for people to participate in the way government makes decisions….. devolve decision making as close to the people and places affected by decisions”…

c)      Requests Local Government NSW (formerly the Local Government and Shires           Associations of NSW (LGSA) to circulate this motion with a supportive discussion           paper to all other Councils to gauge their level of support and response.
