Are amalgamations back on the agenda?
New legislation allows for suburbs to be redistributed without the Council's consent. This seems a little strange but I recall a few weeks ago that the paper was discussing some consultation that would allow Holdfast Bay to annex a suburb from Marion. Now it is an individual politician asking residents if they would like to change councils. As a Councillor in Unley I would hate to think that David Pisoni (Unley) or Jayne Stinson (Badcoe) might be sending letters to our residents without first seeking the opinion of Council. While amalgamations will always be on the agenda this is not about that, it seeing if residents can get a better offer elsewhere.
