While there are are various regional forums for local government, there is a need for stronger collaboration with neighbouring councils. This evening I had a meeting with the Mayors of the neighbouring Councils, Cr. Joe Cossari from Knox, Cr. Bill Pemberton from the City of Whitehorse and Cr. Len Cox from the Shire of Yarra Ranges.
While each of the Councils are part of the Eastern Regional Mayors and CEOs Forum, there is a need for a stronger level of collaboration with neighbouring Councils and tonight’s discussions enabled each of the Mayors to discuss priorities within their respective municipalities.
