Will Ballina Council live up to its promise?

A motion from Cr Jeff Johnson to be tabled at Ballina Shire Council's meeting this week will ask the council to live up to its promise to act on the climate emergency, and divest from fossil fuel investments.

I would like to express my appreciation for the efforts of the committee members of the Mullumbimby Hospital Action Group.

At the meeting on Thursday night they reported on he situation in an informed and coherent manner with a genuine concern for this valuable community resource and the future needs of the Mullumbimby community.

Obviously they have put a lot of effort into the research and offered a clear and viable strategy on how to proceed.

However, they willing accepted suggestions from attendees.

I encourage all members of the Mullum community to get behind the committee and sign the petition which will be circulated in the near future.

  1. Olive,
    Thanks for the good oil.
    You mean the former Mullumbimby Hospital site.
    Mullumbimby has no Hospital site according to the NSW State government
    If there was going to be a Mullumbimby Hospital or retirement home or for the disabled, the Government would have said so from the large volume of activity last Thursday.
    How long did the Roundhouse debacle go on for?
    15 years and after 15 years, and more, we have no Art Gallery.
    No Art Gallery, no money, no health. All there is is DEATH in God’s Waiting Room.
    So that is what you want?
