Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Liverpool City's leadership in Multiculturalism

 

We have all been shocked and saddened by the hostage siege in Martin Place Sydney that has unfolded over the last 48 hours.  These events, which have captivated our nation and the world’s attention, cannot go without response from our community leaders.

 

Whilst investigations by authorities have some length to travel before any definite conclusions can be drawn, it appears from the information available to the public, that this incident was the result of a criminal act by an individual thinly cloaked in a fundamentally misguided form of faith.  All people of faith whether Islamic, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist or any other faith, stand side by side condemning this man and his distorted actions.

 

Liverpool City is an outstanding icon for successful Australian multiculturalism.

 

Amongst our nearly 200,000 residents are people from probably every region and religion of the world living in our peaceful, harmonious community. In confronting times like these, we must redouble our efforts and strengthen our resolve, to remain united and to remain a cohesive democratic community.

 

We must continue our leadership. We must continue to reach out and embrace all communities that make up our city. We do this by celebrating proudly our many cultures through Council sponsored events like celebrating Christmas; through our interfaith dinners, celebrating NAIDOC week and festivals like Diwali and Pacifica. Council and Councillors must and do play a daily role in maintaining this harmony, communication and interfaith engagement in Liverpool.  Citizens too have an obligation to reach out and engage with all members of our community.

 

Councillors, I share with you the sadness at what has happened and extend the Council's sympathy to those affected especially those who are sadly bereaved by loss. I also extend our support and thanks to the authorities including the NSW Police at the front line of this response.

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.         Reaffirms Liverpool City as a diverse, tolerant multicultural community that rejects all forms of violence and religious extremism.

 

2.         Recommits Liverpool City to activities that strengthen our multicultural community including two interfaith dinners, Christmas celebrations, Australia Day celebrations and other festivities as agreed by the CEO and Mayor from time to time that strengthen our community harmony.

 

3.         Observes a minutes silence in respect of those affected by the siege in Martin Place, the hostages and police services impacted and particularly in the memory of Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson who lost their lives and those loved ones and friends affected by bereavement.

 

Motion                                   Moved: Mayor Mannoun     Seconded: Clr Hadid

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Georges River Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge and Pathways

 

This week the Government announced its new metropolitan strategy, A Plan for Growing Sydney, and Liverpool’s important in Sydney’s future is being recognised through its status as one of the three Regional Centres in Sydney.

The Government has identified key priorities for Liverpool to be a commercial centre for Sydney, with strong growth in offices, retail, services and housing. In addition it will support health-related land uses, infrastructure and conference facilities.

Importantly, and a watershed for Liverpool, it is to be a Regional Centre oriented around the beautiful Georges River, and I welcome the Government taking on board our City’s vision.

 

Three of the NSW Government’s priorities for Liverpool include:

 

-          Work with council to improve walking and cycling connections to Liverpool train station from east of the train line.

 

-          Work with council to improve walking and cycling connections between Liverpool and the Georges River.

 

-          Work with council to investigate potential future uses of land located east of Georges River and north of Newbridge Road.

Just as Parramatta did on its investigations into light rail, we ought to take the initiative to accelerate collaboration with the NSW Government to ensure that Liverpool gets support in becoming a strong regional centre where people can live, work and play.

We are fortunate to have a strong foundation: a readily available river connection on the pylons to the Station and Lighthorse Park, and existing pathways that can be completed.

We cannot properly activate the river, provide connectivity to Liverpool station, or grow our city to the east of the Georges River without improved walking and cycling access. We must plan around walking, cycling, and public transport to ensure that we protect our local amenity as we grow.

To that end the key connections for the city on the River should be made shovel-ready.

 

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:

 

1.         Commence concept and detailed design and costing on a pedestrian and cycle bridge over the Georges River on the old pylons connecting the eastern side of the Georges River to Liverpool Station and Lighthorse Park.

 

2.         Commence concept and detailed design and costing on completing pedestrian and cycle pathways between Haigh Park and Mill Park to provide full community access to the river.

 

3.         Delegate authority to the CEO to engage with the NSW Government and relevant landholders to advance these plans in accordance with the new metropolitan strategy, A Plan for Growing Sydney, and seek funding support.

 

4.         Authorise the CEO to utilise funds from the Councillor Reserve to commission concept and detailed design of the bridge and associated infrastructure.

 

Motion                                   Moved: Mayor Mannoun    

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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


 

 

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Crnobrnja Family Support 

 

Liverpool’s Serbian community has always pulled together to support others, to offer a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. They are a vital part of Liverpool’s social and cultural fabric. Sadly, recently, their community was rocked by a tragic loss, when mother of 3, Mrs Vesna Crnobrnja fell victim to an incident of domestic violence.

 

Mrs Crnobrnja’s family are long-term residents of Casula, having relocated there in the mid-90s from war-torn Croatia and Serbia. Mrs Crnobrnja worked at Red Lea Chickens at Casula Mall for over a decade and was well-regarded by her colleagues. The family are also highly involved with Bonnyrigg Soccer Club. Mrs Crnobrnja is survived by her children Zorana, Alexsandar and Nikola who are aged 23, 20 and 17 respectively.

 

However tragic these circumstances may be, with the children’s father currently in police custody, it is heartening to see the community pulling together to help support the family. Mr Zoran Ilic and Dee Zeljkovic, both friends of the family have set out to raise $10,000 to help with funeral expenses and at the very least lessen some of the financial burden on the children. Dee Zeljkovic has set up a web-page where the public can donate money and leave messages of support for the family. I propose that Council support the support this appeal both monetarily and with a message of condolence on the web-page.

 

RECCOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.         Donates $1000 to the Crnobrnja Family through the Crnobrnja Family Support Campaign.

 

2.         Expresses its condolences to the family of Mrs Vesna Crnobrnja.

 

3.         Thanks Zoran Ilic and Dee Zeljkovic for their work in raising awareness and funds for the Crnobrnja family. 

 

4.         Continues its support for campaigns against domestic violence including White Ribbon Day.

 

Motion                                   Moved: Mayor Mannoun    

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Community 2168 Project

It was a great privilege for me to attend the opening of the Miller Community Centre on 4 December 2014. 

 

From the smoking ceremony, through the performances – both planned and ad hoc – to the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, it was clear to me that the sense of partnership and local ownership that have brought this exciting project to fruition will continue to provide a solid platform for future development and achievement.

 

Thanks should go to Galavizh Ahmadinia, Senior Project Officer – Community 2168, for the contribution she makes. Galavizh is highly regarded by her professional colleagues, community centre management team, and crucially, members of the local Miller community.  Her hard work and dedication should be acknowledged as exemplary, reflecting positively on the community and Council.

 

Projects of this type reinforce the importance of local ‘grassroots’ initiatives as agents of change, building the reputation of Liverpool as a city that is having a positive impact on the quality of peoples’ lives. I wish all of the partners at the Miller Community Hub partners very best wishes for the future.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.         Commends the work of Galavizh Ahmadinia and the 2168 Management Committee and expresses its thanks to them for their contribution to the community.

 

2.         Forwards a letter from the Mayor to this effect.

 

Motion                                   Moved: Mayor Mannoun
