NOM12/3 – Opposition to Private Shooting in National Parks.
14 June 2012
Councillor Mark Graham has given notice of his intention to move: Purpose:
That Council note: 1. The NSW Government is seeking to allow private shooting in national parks and other conservation reserves. 2. The NSW Government proposes to allow private shooting in conservation reserves in the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area. 3. It is irresponsible for any government to be proposing an activity which will be dangerous to members of the public and others who use conservation reserves for recreational purposes. 4. While feral animal control is an important activity, it is only safe and effective when undertaken professionally and as humanely as possible. This can only be achieved through the resourcing of professional control programs implemented by state conservation agencies.
That council: 1. Oppose this dangerous proposal by the NSW government; and 2. Write to the Premier and the Environment Minister in opposition to the proposal to allow private shooting in conservation reserves.

Hi! My name is Boy. I'm a male bi-coloured tabby cat. Ever since I discovered that Malcolm Turnbull's dogs were allowed to blog, I have been pestering Clarencegirlto allow me a small space on North Coast Voices.
A Metgascomusing: Sometimes it feels so good to be a cat. No a worry in the world and never tempted to stray into uncatlike realms. So when my live-in servant looks up stock prices I only ever prick my ears if there is seafood in the company name. Which means that I gave a big feline yawn when she looked at me, pointed to the screen and announced that a week out from Christmas coal seam gas miner Metgasco Limited's ordinary share price was sitting at an unimpressive 4.1 cents and it still can't proceed with its planned drilling at Bentley on the NSW North Coast.

A surveyingmusing: Some voters in the NSW Clarence electorate are wondering if Reachtel's early desire to find out which local political aspirants they might prefer in the March 2015 state election is being paid for by the National Party, as it tries to decide how much money to spend on the incumbent MP Chris Lazybones Gulaptis' re-election campaign.
An everyone speak up!musing: Word around the catnip patch is that Voices for Clarence had its official opening today. This Facebook page is a platform for people in the Clarence Valley to share knowledge and information in the Clarence Electorate ahead of the March 2015 NSW State Election. Get over there folks and start the ball rolling!
A this won't end wellmusing: Clarence Valley Council is on the NSW Industrial Relations Commission court list once again, Monday 1 December 2014 3:00pm Compulsory Conference IRC14/833 - USU & Clarence Valley Council re alleged treatment of member. Given the unhealthy corporate culture that appears to have developed since 2011 I can’t see this ending well for council.
