An extraordinary meeting of the Lismore City Council next Tuesday will consider four rescission motions lodged following the final council meeting of last year.
The items subject to the motions were the Lismore Square Shopping Centre $90 million expansion;whether to proceed with negotiations over an Olympic Ski Jump facility; a special business rate variation; and an extra 20 races each year at the Lismore Greyhound Racing track.
Greens councillors Vanessa Ekins and Adam Guise joined with Cr Eddie Lloyd in lodging the rescission motions against the ski jump, the shopping centre expansion and the greyhound racing.
The special business rate variation motion was for the council to apply to the NSW Independent Pricing & Regulator Tribunal (IPART) for a permanent Business Special Rate Variation (SRV) at a rate pegged level of $120,000 per annum, commencing 1 July 2018.
Crs Greg Bennet, Nancy Casson and Adam Guise lodged the rescission motion to reverse the decision to proceed.
At the end of the final meeting last year, only seven of the 29 items on the agenda had been dealt with.
A council spokesperson said those items had been deferred until the first council meeting in the new year, to be held on 13 February.
Next Tuesday’s extraordinary meeting will begin at 6pm and will be available online for people to watch.
