MAYORAL MINUTE
Councillors, tonight’s Mayoral Minute relates to three items.
  1. Following my decision to forgo the mayoral vehicle, I am pleased to advise that the funds will be put to good use in our community. The mulch in the children’s playground at Ruby Wing Reserve in Universal Street, Mortdale will be replaced with a complete soft-fall area. Not only is it much cleaner and safer for children, it dries a lot quicker after wet weather, enabling people to use it sooner. Children will no longer come home with mulch stuck to their shoes and clothes. The soft fall area will complement the new shade structure to be erected under the Infrastructure Plus program later this year. The remainder of the money will be used to install a combined filtered water bubbler and bottle filling station along the walking track at Olds Park. This is an environmentally-sustainable solution to encourage park users to avoid bottled water and refill their own reusable bottles. According to Clean Up Australia, plastic bottles generate an enormous amount of waste that is ending up in landfill or in our environment. Most bottled water is packaged in PET plastic bottles which are derived from crude oil. It can take up to three litres of water to produce one litre of water. Although plastic bottles are recyclable, many end up in landfill and take up to thousands of years to break down. When littered, they often end up in the ocean killing marine life. The combined filtered water bubbler and bottle filling station will discourage the use of bottled water to help conserve our resources and protect our nature well into the future. Additionally, I am pleased Council is currently investigating installing these facilities in the new Hurstville Transport Interchange as well as various other locations throughout the local government area.
  2. Council will tonight consider a report to publicly exhibit a concept design to improve and better utilise lower Gannons Park. The plan aims to upgrade the parkland and provide the community with additional facilities and more diverse recreational space. As a local resident and a father of two young children, I am acutely aware of the importance of providing quality parks in our area. Today’s congested environment is dominated more and more by Apps and iPads rather than bushwalks and backyard cricket, so we need to create more parkland and improve our recreational spaces. This is another step in my promise to get back to basics and to deal with the issues which directly impact on local residents. People of all ages need fair and equitable access to these types of facilities to encourage them to get off the couch and become more active outdoors. The draft Gannons Park Landscape Masterplan is also in response to Council’s 2021 Community Strategic Plan which calls for more open recreational space throughout Hurstville City. Key elements of the plan include a barbecue and picnic area; shared cycleway/footpath that will loop the perimeter of the park; BMX track and adventure play area for children; and the construction of a new soccer practice field. If the plan is endorsed for public exhibition, Council will undertake extensive community consultation, particularly with neighbouring residents, and will consider all submissions before deciding what is in the best interests of the whole community. I encourage my fellow Councillors to endorse the public exhibition of the concept plan which will help revitalise Gannons Park.
  3. As I have previously mentioned, Australia Day is very important to me. It is a day where we celebrate all that is great about Australia and being Australian. In order to mark the significance of this day, I propose Council host an Australia Day Festival at Oatley Park on 26 January 2012. The event forms part of my objective to celebrate and honour all people within our community, and to make Hurstville an even better place to live, work and play. I believe Oatley Park has it all – it is a quintessential Australian park which boasts hectares of natural bushland, the banks of the Georges River and picnic and barbecue facilities. It will enable our residents to celebrate locally without having to travel to Kogarah, Sutherland or further afield. I am determined that Council grow the event from previous years and showcase the best that Hurstville has to offer. Australia Day is all about people coming together locally to reflect and be proud of our heritage, sense of community spirit and cultural diversity. It is proposed the 2012 Australia Day Festival includes a range of food and market stalls as well as amusement rides and a plethora of activities for children at Steam Roller Park, along with a big backyard cricket competition and a barbeque cook-off at Oatley Park Oval. A Council paper outlining the event is due to be considered during tonight’s meeting, and I strongly urge my fellow Councillors to throw their support behind the proposal.

I move reception of the minute.

Minute No. 705-2
RESOLVED THAT the Mayoral Minute be received and noted.
(Moved His Worship the Mayor, Councillor S McMahon / Seconded Councillor P Sansom)


MATTERS OF PRIVILEGE

Condolences
His Worship the Mayor, Councillor S Mc Mahon advised of the following condolences:

It is with regret that I advise Council of the sad passing of Mr Craig Gunning. Craig was a valued member of Council’s Painting and Graffiti Crew. He joined Council three years ago and has been a loyal employee and hard worker. Craig’s sudden passing has been a loss to the organisation. A floral arrangement expressing the deepest sympathy of the Mayor, Councillors and Staff was sent to Craig’s funeral.

It is with regret that I advise Council of the sad passing of the father of Council’s Director of Planning & Development, Michael Watt. A floral arrangement expressing the deepest sympathy of the Mayor, Councillors and Staff has been sent to Michael and his family.

Minute No. 705-3

Other Matters

I wish to advise Councillors of the hospitalisation of State MP and Canterbury Mayor, Mr Robert Furolo. According to the Daily Telegraph of Monday, August 29, Mr Furolo suffered a heart attack. The Lakemba MP, who was an advisor to his predecessor and former Premier Morris Iemma, is in a stable condition after the scare. Mr Furolo is being supported by his family, including two children Isabella and Alexander. The Opposition roads spokesman is expected to take a few weeks off work to recover. A floral arrangement was sent to Concord Hospital on behalf of the Mayor, Councillors and Staff wishing Robert a speedy recovery.

I wish to advise Council of the birth of a son, Matthew Evans, to Mark Evans & wife Sonya. Mark is a member of Council’s Drains Crew. Both mother and baby are well. A floral arrangement was sent on behalf of the Mayor, Councillors and Staff to Mark and Sonya congratulating them on the birth of their baby son.


Councillor V Badalati raised and was approved a matter of urgency. Councillor Badalati spoke to the issue of B-Double trucks travelling down Tooronga Terrace to Kingsgrove and noted that residents were concerned about the dangers posed by this practice. Councillor Badalati asked that Council consider places signs advising that B-Double trucks are not able to travel the route and that Council requests additional police patrols to address the situation.

Minute No. 705-4
THAT Council places signage at the corner of King Georges Rd and Tooronga Terrace advising B-Double Trucks are not allowed to use the route.
