Jay rejects big councils
It's good to know that the Premier, Jay Weatherill, does not support council amalgamations. According to this morning's Advertiser he said yesterday that councils should be smaller rather than larger and encourage a role for volunteers within the organisation. Good news indeed, just hope that his Ministers have been briefed on this and agree with him. This hasn't been the case for development assessment to the system's detriment. I never have understood why one group saying something loudly and often seems to have more power than lots of people say the same thing?
