MAV motions gain support from Victorian Councils

17 May 2017

All three motions tabled by Maroondah City Council were carried at the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) State Council meeting held on Friday 12 May.

Maroondah Councillor Mike Symon, who represented Council at the meeting with Maroondah CEO Steve Kozlowski, said the collaboration and support between Councils was strong.

“The State Council Meetings provide an opportunity for each member Council in Victoria to submit motions which have significance on a state level for all Victorian municipalities,” Cr Symon said.

“The motions presented must be deemed to have significance across the Victorian Local Government sector,” Cr Symon said.

“At Maroondah we have a proven record of leading the way in highlighting issues faced by the sector and this was once again highlighted by the support shown for all three of our motions. They were all carried by a significant margin,” Cr Symon said.

“Council also supported 13 motions generated by the Eastern Metropolitan Councils and
had the chance to vote on a number of motions presented by other Council’s across the state,” Cr Symon said.

“This is a great example of how local government can work together to improve our municipalities – regardless of the location of each Council, the issues and concerns that we face are shared. So it is important that we collaborate and advocate as ‘one’ to achieve the best possible results for our communities,” Cr Symon said.

The Maroondah motions carried related to the State Government’s Rate Capping communications in a revaluation year; universal access to Early Childhood service; and the Return of Interest forms.
