Council Meeting June 12

I’ve asked some questions of council today and have been left very confused about what exactly Moonee Valley is proposing with respect to begging and on-street charity “spruiking” and collecting.
I look forward to being enlightened as I sit at home tonight and watch the meeting via live streaming.

– looking at spending $30M on 6 highball courts at Quinn Grove;
