I am a great believer in community input into Council business. A great opportunity for that is through Advisory Committees. Four of those have vacancies, and I encourage anyone with an opinion on the following areas, or with shareable expertise, to apply. You can do that up to the end of June at: www.byron.nsw.gov.au/Public-Notice/Nominate-to-join-a-Council-Advisory-Committee.
The Committees delve deeper than Councillors can and give advice to them on:
1. Biodiversity, 2. Coast & ICOLLs (Intermittently Closing and Opening Lake or Lagoon, like Belongil or Tallow creeks), 3. Water & Sewer, 4. Floodplains.
There are also vacancies on the Place Planning Collective, but applications close today 22 June. Try a late application: www.byron.nsw.gov.au/Community/Place-planning/Place-Planning-Collective.
