|The Facts Say YES for Pittwater
Mayor Jacqui Townsend has today urged residents to say ‘YES to the
facts’ in the upcoming referendum, in an effort to ensure that Federal
funding continues to be available for important local projects.
“Pittwater Council stands to lose a considerable amount of Federal
funding if the upcoming referendum regarding constitutional recognition
for local government doesn’t succeed, “said Mayor
For some time many really important local council projects, in
particular the upgrade of many of our local roads have been possible
due to direct Federal funding. At present, direct Federal funding of
local projects is in doubt.” she said.
“A YES vote will preserve the sort of arrangements that, for more than
10 years, have funded important local projects. Voting YES simply
ensures existing practice can continue and that’s a good thing for our
Over the past few years Council has received Federal funding for the
following local projects:
“A YES vote will ensure our community can continue to receive Federal
funding for local projects without the funds going first through the
states. Direct funding by the Commonwealth ensures greater efficiency
and injects money into our local economy.”, said Mayor Townsend.
- Upgrade to Governor Phillip Park Playground, Palm
- Construction of a new Church Point Boat tie up
- Upgrades to roads across many Pittwater suburbs
- Energy efficiency program allowing for solar hot
water systems to be installed at a number of Council facilities.
“Our important local projects need Federal funding and voting YES is
the only way to secure this.
There is no other source to replace this funding.”
Around the country direct Federal funding has delivered safer roads,
better playgrounds and parks, and upgraded libraries and other
important local amenities – in short, safer and improved local
environments for our communities.
But two recent High Court decisions mean from now on this funding is
under threat. Which is why the facts say YES on election day.
