We revisit this issue since the Leader article has omitted to mention the most important aspect of the hour long ‘debate’ that occurred – the refusal by Hyams, Lipshutz, Esakoff, Pilling and Ho, to include Notice of Motion as part of the proposed changes to Council’s Meeting Procedures. We also note that 9 days after the resolution to seek an amendment was passed there is still no public notice up on council’s website, nor is there any advertisement in the local paper advising residents that their views will be sought via submissions. There is of course, a full page colour ad celebrating GESAC’s 4th birthday! How much did this cost we wonder?

To put the record straight, readers will be interested to know that the following list of councils ALL HAVE NOTICE OF MOTION. Hence in Glen Eira, 5 individuals are effectively gagging councillors and hence the community!
