Win on Council Reform

Bill Council reform, Events

After ten years of effort by both the NWMA and CoRBA to obtain a review of the structure and electoral processes of the City of Melbourne,  we have at last achieved some success.  The State Government has announced a VEC review of the City of Melbourne, particularly focussing on wards and voter numbers.  This is a good first step toward looking at other important issues that affect the way the Council works and relates to its communities and stakeholders.

We congratulate the Melbourne Leader on the support that it has provided to raise awareness of these issues around the performance of the City of Melbourne.
