Robyn Lemaire, president Murwillumbah Ratepayers and Residents Association
From the publicity that was achieved recently, other options to continue with the Murwillumbah Ratepayers and Residents Association are appearing.
These may include fewer meetings throughout the year. Meetings are less than two hours, with a cuppa for coin donation.
We need a small commitment of time, and the details will be discussed at the August meeting. If anybody is interested in making nominations for offices, they can be made to: Murwillumbah Ratepayers and Residents Association, PO Box 851, Murwillumbah 2484.
There is a lot still going on in Murwillumbah, and there are currently grant monies to be spent.
The projects being put forward will benefit our town in many ways, and public input will assist in getting what you want for our town.
If our association continues with more membership from our local community (yes – you), we intend to put forward a submission on Knox Park when it opens.
We would invite a Tweed Shire Council representative to discuss the plans with our group, and then discuss the proposals before making a submission.
The meetings are the basis for submissions to gain a representative opinion of our town. We need people to become members (for $6) to help put forward a balanced submission of what the residents and ratepayers really want.
The community needs to be represented; without this association, Murwillumbah will lose the voice of residents, and the council seeks this voice.
Come to the AGM at the Autumn Club on Tumbulgum Road (next to the library), at 7.30pm Monday 19 August and be part of making our community.
Mark the date in your diary and see who we are and what we do, and become part of it.
