Apologies Cr. Stephen Hart.
Otway Shire Council Elections
- A big thank you to the Youth Club for allowing us to use their hall for last week’s council election candidates forum.
- It was a highly informative afternoon to learn the many and varied views on a wide range of topics.
- Ballot papers have now arrived and you have until the last post on Friday the 21st Oct to exercise your democratic rights.
- Good luck trying to find candidates that reflect your views on the many issues facing Apollo Bay.
- The Forum urges voters to support local candidates that at least are aware of the issues and residents views.
- Let’s hope all the new councillors can work together constructively without resorting to cheap point scoring and childish disruptive behaviour!!
- Also we would expect all the new councillors to attend council officer briefings, instead of wasting valuable time debating irrelevant issues in council meetings.
- Council election results should be known by the end of the first week of Nov.
- Planning permit approval for the 6280 Great Ocean Road subdivision has been delayed while further information is gathered.
- Mariners View Estate has been given planning approval by COS.
