Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Miracle Babies Turns Ten

 

Liverpool is home to many grassroots not-for-profit organisations which provide a great deal of support to our residents with limited resources. One organisation which has prospered and grown far beyond Liverpool’s borders is the Miracle Babies Foundation which is chaired by former NSW Premier, Mr Morris Iemma and lead operationally, by CEO Ms Melinda Cruz.

 

As many of you will know the foundation started at Liverpool Hospital 10 years ago and supports premature and sick newborns and their families. I attended their 10th birthday celebration last week at Liverpool Hospital with the Member for Menai, Melanie Gibbons MP. It would not surprise many of you to know that this is an issue close to my heart.

 

Mr Iemma and Ms Cruz both spoke with great humility and thanked Council for their continued support of the foundation and its work. More importantly they spoke of the inspirational journey of the foundation’s creation, with many in the crowd shedding a tear in celebration of the lives saved by facilities and staff funded by Miracle Babies.

 

The Miracle Babies story shows just what can be achieved through hard work and dedication in the face of tremendous adversity.

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council write to the CEO and Board of Miracle Babies congratulating them on their continued success and contribution to Liverpool Hospital over the last decade.

 

 Motion:                                           Moved: Mayor Mannoun    

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: John Edmondson Memorial VC Park Safety 

 

I have received representation from residents in Wattle Grove and the Member for Menai Ms Melanie Gibbons MP regarding safety at John Edmondson Memorial VC Park.

 

The park provides pedestrian access to Birdwood and Bridges Avenues but Ms Gibbons has advised that the residents feel unsafe using the pathways in the evening due to the lack of lighting.

 

I am informed that lighting is often not provided for smaller parks such as John Edmondson Memorial VC Park, because it is believed that such lighting can attract anti-social elements. But in this case, given that pedestrian access for extended periods is a priority for residents, lighting may be a reasonable request.

 

Due to how Wattle Grove was planned there are numerous parks that fit this description.

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.      Provide a report to Council on the safety of users of John Edmondson Memorial VC Park, and other relevant parks in Wattle Grove, with particular regard to the lighting and configuration of the park.

 

2.      Write to the residents of Wattle Grove to request feedback on the safety and quality of recreation spaces in their local area.

 

 Motion:                                           Moved: Mayor Mannoun    

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 

 


 

 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Toda School Exchange Program

 

Council has been approached by the former principal of John Edmonson High School, Gary Joannides about the Toda School Exchange Program which Council has previously funded and supported. The program has typically involved 15 high school students from Liverpool visiting Toda City, Japan and 15 students from Toda visiting Liverpool, and has become a long-term cultural exchange with significant good will established.

Unfortunately in the wake of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster, Council and High Schools across the Local Government Area were forced to halt their participation in the program due to concerns about potential nuclear radiation. Partnering Council in this program was the Toda International Friendship Association who, in this period of lapsed Council involvement, have continued to send their students to Sydney and to Liverpool.

The program is one of the longest running student exchange programs in Australia and is part of our continuing Sister City relationship with Toda. Since 1993, more than 600 students plus teachers from both Sister Cities have participated in the program. I believe it has brought about a deeper understanding of Japanese culture amongst high school aged residents and their families, and is of particular benefit to those studying the Japanese language at high school, which is a nation of growing importance to Australia’s future. It also reinforces to Council and the community the importance of cross cultural dialogue in this age of global interconnectedness, building upon our existing relationship with Toda City.

In light of the absence of safety concerns in Toda, I would like to support Gary Joannides’ approach to rekindle our exchange program.

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.      Allocate $50,000.00 in the 2015/2016 Council Budget to the Toda School Exchange Program.

 

2.      Write to Toda City and the Toda International Friendship Association thanking them for their continued friendship and informing them of Council’s resolution to renew funding for the Toda Student Exchange Program.

 

3.      Write to the principals of high schools in the Local Government Area to inform them of Council’s resolution.

 

 

 

 

 

Motion:                                            Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That Council:

 

1.      Consider allocating $50,000.00 in the 2015/2016 Council Budget to the Toda School Exchange Program.

 

2.      Write to Toda City and the Toda International Friendship Association thanking them for their continued friendship and informing them of Council’s resolution to renew funding for the Toda Student Exchange Program subject to the budget approval process.

 

3.      Pending the outcome of the budget approval process, write to the principals of high schools in the Local Government Area to inform them of Council’s resolution.

 

4.      Staff look at all ramifications of safety before sending Liverpool students to Toda City.

 

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

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Macedonian Flood Assistance

 

Recently, the Republic of Macedonia has experienced dramatic flooding throughout regions of the Pelagonia Valley and large portions of Eastern Macedonia.

 

This has displaced thousands of people and affected the lives of countless others. It has also lead to the destruction of significant infrastructure and mass evacuations.

 

Liverpool’s highly multicultural makeup means that families in our community have directly or indirectly been affected by this natural disaster. Many have come forward to support the efforts of the Macedonian Red Cross’ Flood Appeal, and our community has come to particular note for its outstanding efforts on this front.

 

We benefit greatly from the contribution the Macedonian community makes to Liverpool, and to this end Council would like to follow the example of Rockdale Council in showing our support to our communities’ fundraising efforts in this time of need.

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.      On behalf of the City of Liverpool provide $5,000 to the Macedonian Flood Appeal which is being managed by the Embassy of the Republic of Macedonia on behalf of the Macedonian Red Cross.

 

2.      Acknowledges the significant efforts of the Macedonian community in Liverpool and Sydney more broadly to support the relief efforts of the Macedonian Red Cross

 

3.      Reaffirms its support for the Macedonian Community in Liverpool and Australia, in writing to the Ambassador of the Republic of Macedonia in Canberra, Vele Trpevski.

 

 Motion:                                           Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

Questions with Notice

ITEM NO:      QWN 01

FILE NO:        027352.2015

SUBJECT:     Question with Notice - Clr Stanley

 

I refer to the Gateways at Warwick Farm and the Hume Highway, and the Hume Highway at the Cross roads.

 

Can I please be provided with the following information:

 

1.      Cost of the work per Gateway Site

       The cost for the gateway is approximately $50,000.

 

2.      How many sites have been completed?

       Two sites have been completed.

 

3.      Where are they?

       On the corner of Governor Macquarie Drive and the Hume Highway, Warwick Farm and Camden Valley Way Casula directly across from Bunnings.

 

4.      What sites are still to be completed/estimated completion dates?

       At this stage no further gateways will be constructed.

 

5.      How often will the planting need to be updated (other than plants which die or are vandalised)?

       Most of the plants that have been selected are hardy and suitable for this application. Some annuals species have been introduced in front of the wall to enhance the colour of the garden beds, however we are also considering other plant species that will achieve the same objectives without the need for replacement.

 

6.      Have natives been used? If not why?

       Native plants have not been used in the current 2 Gateway locations as the design objective was to create a formal, vibrant and symmetrical garden that would enhance the appearance of the wall. The public feedback to date has been very positive and has significantly raised the profile of Liverpool. Native plant species can be considered in any future Gateways.

 

 

 

 

7.      What will the maintenance costs be for the gateways?

       Prior to the construction of the Gateways Council was already incurring maintenance costs for the provision of grass mowing, rubbish removal and weed control. Since the Gateways have been established it has been noticed that the general rubbish has reduced and the sites are easier to maintain as the area around the gardens have been cleared and are level which makes mowing more efficient. However additional costs will be incurred for the replacement of the annual plants and this is expected to be approximately $4,000 per annum. This cost may be reduced if a suitable replacement species is introduced that will not require seasonal replacement.

2.      Can I be advised the progress of the review regarding the Heritage Conservation Management Plan as described on Liverpool Council website http://www.liverpool.nsw.gov.au/council/policies-and-forms/forms-publications-and-policies

 

3.      Does Council require in its DA process an archaeological report for areas especially in the CBD that are likely because of their uses of the last two hundred years to contain items of interest?

 

4.      What requirements must be met if items of significance are found?

 

5.      Is there a process to determine areas of Aboriginal significance and how these areas are dealt with in any potential Development Application?
