Maroondah and Knox Networking function

By July 15, 2010July 19th, 2010No Comments

The City of Knox, is located to the south of Maroondah and has a population of 151,000 residents who are represented through nine Councillors and Cr. Joe Cossari, who is the current Mayor.

This evening the City of Knox organised a networking function to encourage dialogue between the Councillors of Knox and Maroondah. While there are regular opportunities for Mayors to meet, there is a lack of similar possibilities for Councillors.

Local government needs to adopt a regional approach so that we can work cooperatively on issues of common interest. In Maroondah and Knox for example, there are common concerns in regard to public transport, and the two municipalities need to work together to achieve positive outcomes for our community.

It is envisaged that tonight’s function will be the first of several opportunities for Councillors to come together and work collectively for the betterment of Melbourne’s outer east.
