The Baird Government’s Fit for the Future process has now closed and we await the Premier’s announcement on the future of the City of Sydney. Despite exceeding all the Fit for the Future criteria the City was declared ‘unfit’ in the recent report. There are strong signs that the Baird Government is very keen on placing the City of Sydney into administration and forcing a merger with surrounding councils. However, there is very strong community support for the City of Sydney to stand alone.
Last week I attended the Save Our Councils rally in the cbd and was buoyed by the support that local community members showed.
