Inner West Council pushes ahead with preparing a de-merger business case


The Inner West Council is pushing ahead with the preparation of a business case to de-amalgamate, The Sydney Morning Herald has reported today.

This comes despite a growing divide between residents and staff on plans to reinstate Leichhardt, Marrickville and Ashfield councils.

In February, Inner West Councillors voted unanimously to form a business case after 62 percent of people in the area voted for the council to spilt in a poll at last year’s council elections.

But Independent Councillor John Stamolis told a meeting last week residents were growing frustrated with the council’s slow response to the vote.

“It’s time to let the political differences go,” Cr Stamolis told the newspaper. “We now need to show good faith to our residents, we need to show them that we’re doing something.”

In response, council general manager Peter Gainsford said the outcome of the demerger poll had been published in the council newsletter distributed to every household earlier this year.
