Eurobodalla has a new Mayor and things are already changing for the better

Mayor Liz Innes has a totally different style to the previous mayor; a style that is fresh, engaging, inclusive, open and attentive. Her election mandate was to bring Council and the community together and she is leading the way by her example. Her attendance at the Tuross Head Progress Association meeting with Deputy Mayor Anthony Mayne is one of just a few attendances she has already undertaken with local community associations and her door has already been swung wide to accommodate discussions with local business chamber groups. After her attendance at the very well attended Tuross Head meeting Mayor Innes said: “ I believe that good communication is essential in building positive relationships between Council and the community. The examples that have been set by Tuross Head Progress and our other shire wide community associations to represent their community and bring ideas, issues and solutions to the table are definitely the way forward, and I encourage other communities to take their lead.” “With open communication and an approach based on good will I believe we can move forward, letting previous grievances go. I am working to turn it around. It is going to take time and effort and it will take trust however if we work together the things of legacy will fade” Mayor Innes encourages the Eurobodalla community; “Join a local association, if you don’t have one then maybe consider forming one. Chambers of Commerce are also a good starting point”. Eurobodalla Council return to the Council Chambers on February 14th. There is little doubt that it will be an interesting year ahead for Councillors with the issues that are coming to light as the veil is lifted on issues that were "less transparent" during the last Council term. Beagle readers are encouraged to follow the excellent articles of Peter Cormick as passes comment on forth coming meetings, agenda items, and how the Councilors and Council are performing in line with legislation and expectation.

Above: 67 turned out on Thursday to the Tuross Head Progress meeting to welcome Mayor Liz Innes and Deputy Mayor Anthony Mayne into the community conversations.
