PUBLIC QUESTION TIME

 

Question: Mrs Anne Anderson – Bayswater North Resident

‘Following on from my question at the April meeting, what steps have now been taken by the Council to ensure that Glen Park Community Centre’s governance procedures become compliant with both state legislation and the purposes of a community centre, specifically when will the memberships of local people be recognised by the non-local committee so that all members can attend the AGM and keep the committee accountable and representative of local interests and the Centre eligible for council endorsement and funding’

 

 

 

Response: Andrew Fuaux – Acting Director Planning & Community

‘Glen Park Community Centre's Association Rules have been approved by Consumer Affairs Victoria and hence is compliant with State legislation. Consumer Affairs Victoria has Model Rules that many Incorporated Associations follow. Organisations are able to set up their own Association Rules but must cover off on certain legislative requirements. In addition Consumer Affairs Victoria oversees that Association Rules meet legislative requirements.

Consumer Affairs Victoria's Model Rules and Glen Park Community Centre's Association Rules do not specify that a committee member has to live locally. All members can attend the AGM. Membership does not have to be accepted by the committee and the rules state that no reason needs to be given.’ 

 

Question

Mr Eddie Kozlowski, Vernon Street, Croydon

‘Will Council request the Director of Operations to renegotiate with Work Safe for new terms and conditions for the removal of unwanted signs from Maroondah parks and reserves to the satisfaction of the Maroondah community.’

 

Response: Trevor Welsh – Director Operations, Infrastructure & Leisure

‘Council is currently engaged with WorkSafe in negotiating an agreed outcome on this matter. A number of initiatives have been proposed and are currently being considered by WorkSafe. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time given the current status of WorkSafe deliberations.’
