Independent Local Government Review Panel – Visiting Junee
Councils throughout NSW are being urged to think hard about amalgamating.
The Independent Local Government Review Panel released their third report into Local Government - Future Directions for NSW Local Government Twenty Essential Steps in April and would like to hear from community members about what they think about the Panel’s proposed reform package for local government.
Come along to hear about how Junee, Coolamon, Temora and Cootamundra could form into one large Council that would form part of a larger Riverina County Council with its headquarters located in Wagga Wagga. This and other proposed reforms for increased revenue and improved governance to help service communities will be explained.
Junee is fortunate to have been selected as the community consultation location for this region. Join other community members from Lockhart, Gundagai, Tumut, Wagga Wagga and Tumbarumba who will be in Junee for this event.

Regional and Metropolitan Community Hearings:
The Community Hearings in each region aim to provide the opportunity for community representatives to put forward their views on the proposed options in the paper. Each session will be 2 hours in duration. This will include a brief scene setter by a Panel member for 15 minutes, up to 15 community representatives will have 5 minutes each to put their views forward, and there will be 30 minutes for general discussion to enable other attendees to put their views forward.
Please note that community members do not need to register to attend the Community Hearings, however if they are interested in addressing the Panel they are required to fill out an expression of interest form available on the Have Your Say page of the Panel’s website. Councillors and Council staff are welcome to attend the Hearings, but preference will be given to community representatives to address the Panel.
