Deputy Mayor Sangalli took the Chair as the Presiding Member.
Moved Mr Webb, Seconded Ms Ede.
My name is Chris Webb of Gnangara, and I would like to put forward a motion that the City of Wanneroo Council resolves that the City of Wanneroo make an annual payment in perpetuity to the West Australian Ratepayers and Residents Association Incorporated matching dollar for dollar amount as the subscription fees paid by the City of Wanneroo to the West Australian Local Government Association in the applicable year and the Council directs the CEO to immediately implement this resolution. Time to give the Community a say.
Mayor Roberts re-entered the meeting at 6:41pm and took the Chair as the Presiding Member.
That the City in developing plans for future use of the Quinns Rocks Caravan Park site on Lot 211 Quinns Road, Mindarie, considers options for public use instead of commercial development – including picnic and play areas and additional car parking, all within the existing cleared footprint – ideas raised at recent consultative workshops with local residents.
That the City reviews its plan for prescribed burning in 20 local bushland reserves given the potential ecological impact of burning and considers alternatives including effective weed management, community surveillance and rapid fire suppression.
That the City reviews its investment policy to align its investments with its goal of action on climate change. Specifically, we call on the City to end investments supporting fossil fuel extraction and production that threatens climate stability and instead support investments enabling a more sustainable future such as energy efficiency and renewable energy.
That Council adopt measures to continue the approaches laid out in its Energy Action plan 2007-2012 and both report on and advocate for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions across both corporate and community areas.
There being no further business, the Presiding Member closed the meeting at 6:56pm.
