Media Statement - Demerger Assessment Process
Snowy Valleys Council has today been advised by the Office of the Minister for Local Government and the Office of Local Government that the Minister has determined that proposals to demerge Snowy Valleys Council and Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council should proceed to the next stage of the formal assessment process.
At its Ordinary Meeting of December 2018, Snowy Valleys Council resolved to not support a demerger proposal.
However we acknowledge the democratic rights of our community and welcome the formal assessment in the public interest.
We are fully committed to co-operating with the Office of Local Government and actively participating in the assessment process with integrity and objectivity.
There will be no impact to our service delivery during this process and we ask that the public continue to be respectful of Council staff. Our teams have the best interests of their communities in mind and will continue to operate business as usual.
It is our continued commitment to developing Snowy Valleys Council as a high performing, sustainable council for those people in the wider community we serve.
We will not be providing ongoing commentary during this process.
