Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Austral Progress Association

 

Austral Progress Association is not for profit organisation which has been established for many decades servicing part of the rural community.

 

It currently owns the HJ Starr Hall at Edmondson Ave Austral which was donated by the Starr family in memory of Herbert Starr.

 

Over 20 years ago Council contributed funds to the association to upgrade the Hall.  In doing so, Council placed a charge over the property so that if it was on sold Council could recoup the funds.

 

A MOU was agreed upon several years ago but was never entered into due to some unknown reason.  Part of that MOU was for Council to make a yearly financial contribution towards the association.

 

The association is now proposing constructing a security fence around the front of the premises. Of recent time they have started to face issues where parties are being held uninvited guests are entering the premises.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Contribute from Council Reserves $5,000 for the erection of the security fence at the HJ Starr Hall.

 

2.    Organise to meet with the Association to discuss the ‘Charge’ over the property and also the MOU which has never been entered into.

 

MOTION:                               Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 

 

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Building Our New City Promotion

 

I have been encouraged by the sight of investment returning to the Liverpool CBD, and the significant projects that have made people reconsider Liverpool as a place for investment.

 

The opportunity to live, work, and play by the beautiful Georges River is one that people are starting to appreciate. The enthusiasm and optimism that this is generating is attracting growth that will revitalise our CBD and provide new amenity and lifestyle to residents both existing and new.

 

The cranes that dot the skyline of Liverpool are the most visible sign of the rebirth of this city, and are a tangible expression of the progress that is being made to Build Our New City. In addition, these building sites’ hoarding is an opportunity for promotion of Liverpool as an investment destination.

 

We can harness and promote this energy to ensure that more investors and residents see Liverpool as a place worth investing in and worth living in. The Building Our New City program and branding is key to the future of Liverpool, and this is an opportunity for inexpensive and highly-visible branding of this program.

 

I propose that Council seek to make use of these visible markers of Liverpool’s growth to promote further the Building Our New City brand to encourage greater awareness of and optimism for investment in Liverpool.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Approach sites with prominent cranes and hoardings to host branding that promotes Building Our New City, to maximise the exposure of the Building Our New City program and awareness of the revitalisation of Liverpool.

 

2.    Authorise the CEO to produce branding from the Councillors Reserve that can be affixed to cranes and hoardings in prominent sites deemed to be of high visibility and significance in terms of the Building Our New City branding.

 

MOTION:                               Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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


 

 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Liverpool Hospital Cancer Research

 

On the 31st of October, I attended the Cabramatta/Cabra-vale Lions club fundraising event for Liverpool Hospital Cancer research. The event highlighted the need for investment into cancer research, and the important work being undertaken by community organisations to support our hospital and its work.

 

I was impressed by the dedication of the Cabramatta/Cabra-vale Lions club and the assistance of Ibis Style Hotel in undertaking this fundraiser, and glad to see community organisations seeking to supplement the work being undertaken at Liverpool Hospital. I was touched by the stories of those whose lives could be improved by further research by our dedicated medical professionals in this field.

 

The focus of the fundraiser was on raising a sum of $17,000, and I have subsequently received a request for Liverpool Council to donate $2,250 to bring the total raised at that event to that amount. The event was successful in raising $14,750 of their fundraising goal of $17,000. Such a fundraiser is significant in the quantum it was able to raise, and this should be commended and encouraged.

I propose that Council commend and assist in a modest way in support this fundraising effort that will benefit our local hospital.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Congratulate the Lions Club of Cabramatta/Cabra-vale and the Ibis Style Hotel on their work in raising funds for the purpose of research into circulating tumour cells at our local hospital here in Liverpool.

 

2.    Authorise the CEO to provide $2,250 from the Councillors Reserve to the Cabramatta/Cabra-vale Lions club to complete their fundraising of their donation to Liverpool Hospital Cancer research in the department of Head and Neck Surgery for them to undertake this work.

 

MOTION:                               Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 

 

Mayoral Minute

 

SUBJECT: City Activation

As part of the activation of the City, it is important to encourage people to see the potential in public places and be part of the process of change and activation. To that end, the Building Our New City committee has undertaken steps to make it easier for those bringing short-term activation ideas to Liverpool to advance their proposals in ways that allow both individuals and Council to test ideas and see what works.

 

In addition to that, some activation activities need to be driven by Council especially as we are approaching a key time for change in relation to iconic sites in Liverpool, such as the Macquarie Street Mall and the George’s River. Activating a space helps change behaviour and business investment, which add value to public investments.

 

This minute has been informed by the work of Professor Ed Blakely, who has been assisting Council on its programme to activate the City and improve its key sites in the public domain. His work has showed the need to provide early and easy activation ideas that can increase the value of our civic improvements.

 

As well as the private ideas that we are trying to facilitate, there may be a role for Council-led activities to activate the Mall and River at a time of change. Encouraging people to use the Mall outside of business hours is a key priority of the Mall project, and activation activities such as live sites, film nights, and other activities could assist in this process.

 

I propose that Council authorise the CEO a modest budget to fund activation activities over the period of the renewal of the Mall.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council authorise the CEO to use $30,000 from the Councillors Reserve to fund activation projects in the Mall and on the Georges River on a needs basis to fill gaps in city activation throughout the renewal of the Mall.

 

MOTION:                               Moved: Mayor Mannoun

That:

 

1.    Council authorise the CEO to use $30,000 from the Councillors Reserve to fund activation projects in the Mall and on the Georges River on a needs basis to fill gaps in city activation throughout the renewal of the Mall.

 

2.    The CEO report back to Council at an appropriate time on the effectiveness of this program.

 

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

Cost to council of LGNSW membership for 2014/15 was $62,847.65.

 

 

2.    What tangible benefits has council received from its membership?

 

The benefits to Council are LGNSW’s provision of a range of networking opportunities which provide significant exposure and channels of advocacy for Council Executive and Councillors. At the most recent Local Government conference held in Coffs Harbour, both the New South Wales Premier and Minister for Local Government where in attendance and addressed those present.  Additionally, membership provides opportunities to share in discussion of high level thinking on policy and effective administration of local governance. It should also be noted that membership entitles Councils to bid to host the annual Local Government Conference within their Local Government Area. Hosting the conference is of significant economic benefit to the local area.

 

 

3.    What are the benefits if council withdraws its membership from LGNSW?

 

The benefit of withdrawing membership of the LGNSW would be the cost saving of the membership fees for the relevant financial year.
