Council meeting 25 June

Tonight’s blog of the Council meeting is going to be a little different. It has to be, because the meeting was astonishing – in a bad way.

I don’t even know how to describe what I saw.

So, I am going to transcribe sections of the meeting verbatim – and try to minimise my editorial descriptions. I will let it speak for itself.

What’s the deal in Flemington?

The decision at Council last week to reduce money specifically allocated in the long term budget for the Flemington Community Hub has caused quite a stir – and lots of confusion.

In fact, there is still $40m+ in the budget for the hub and park – the same as there was last year.

This post sets out some of the facts as we know – and some of the remaining mysteries.
