In response to a question from the gallery some months ago, regarding council's 12 month delay in appointing a new Advisory Committee for the Kangaroo Ground Memorial Park & Tower of Remembrance, the mayor advised that council would soon constitute a new Advisory Committee to cover all War Memorial sites within the municipality.

In light of recent advertisements seeking Expressions of Interest from potential nominees for the Kangaroo Ground Advisory Committee, Friends of Nillumbik ask:

For what reason has council abandoned the mayor's proposed new committee, and why has it taken this long to re-advertise for nominees for the Kangaroo Ground Committee?

Many months ago Friends of Nillumbik asked a question about green waste going to landfill and we were told that a new contractor was being sought. We are now receiving reports about recyclables being mixed with green waste and going to landfill which we consider even more serious as recyclables can generate income. Formerly Nillumbik Shire led the State in green waste management. Why hasn't the Council resolved these issues?
