All eleven community members who put their hand up were appointed to the committee to advise Council on actions and to address issues relating to the Mangrove Mountain Golf Course and alleged dumping at Spencer.
John Asquith, Gary Chestnut, Stephen Goodwin, Wolfgang Koerner, Margaret Pontifex, Marilyn Steiner, Danny Willmott, Stephen Rickards, Pam O’Sullivan, Joy Cooper and Lillias Bovell are the appointed community members.
The community members will round out the committee made up of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Councillors Marquart, MacGregor and Mehrtens as well as the Chief Executive Officer, General Counsel, other relevant staff and independent experts.
Mayor Jane Smith said with the confirmation of the community appointments the committee could now get on with the job of helping to resolve issues relating to waste management in the best interests of the community and the Central Coast.
“We want to ensure we have everyone at the table with the expertise, knowledge and interest to ensure these issues are investigated thoroughly and the appropriate action taken as that is what our community want to see.”
“I look forward to the first meeting of this committee and in continuing to keep the community updated on the progress of these important matters.”
