The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) is the peak body representing local government at a national level. Each year the organisation holds a National General Assembly, where Councils across the country nominate motions to influence the priorities and initiatives undertaken by ALGA.
I will be in Canberra during the week of the 14th of June to participate in the National General Assembly and to meet Federal Members of Parliament to discuss the priorities of Maroondah City Council. It is important that Maroondah is well represented at a Federal level and I would to thank Maroondah’s CEO Frank Dixon, as well as my fellow Councillors, Paul Macdonald, Michael Macdonald, Rob Steane and Les Willmott who will be joining me in Canberra. During this time we are planning to meet several Members of Parliament where we can discuss Maroondah’s priorities and the need for ongoing collaboration between all levels of government.
