Residents across the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council local government area (LGA) can make submissions to the Boundaries Commission in relation to the de-amalgamation of the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council from Tuesday 24th March 2020.
The Boundaries Commission has determined that public notices of the proposal and a call for submissions will be advertised in local and national newspapers. The notices will also appear on CGRC and Office of Local Government websites from Tuesday 24th March.
Residents can also access a “Frequently Asked Questions” document from Councils website www.cgrc.nsw.gov.au/boundaries-commisson-inquiry or www.olg.nsw.gov.au/lgbc
Council has engaged Professor Joseph Drew to develop a series of short (5 minute) videos explaining various important concepts. Dr Drew’s video on lodging submissions can be viewed on the CGRC Website by following the link https://www.cgrc.nsw.gov.au/boundaries-commission-inquiry. This video encourages residents to write a submission even if they have already done so, and gives a clear and concise message on what the submission should contain.
Other videos are included that give residents an explanation of other important concepts such as rate harmonisation and harmonisation of fees and charges such as wast, water and sewerage.
Submissions will be close on Friday 24th April 2020.
