The Georges Riverkeeper Committee met on 16 February 2023, to receive an update from the Georges Riverkeeper team about actions undertaken as part of the current programs and grant projects, as well as hearing from the Treasurer with financial reports. In addition, presentations from the following were delivered:
- Debbi Millener, Department of Planning & Environment, presented an overview of the NSW Government Coastal Management Program, why it is required and how it benefits Councils.
- Councillor Harle, Liverpool City Council, presented on Stormwater Treatment Measures and Liverpool City Council’s experience.
Both presentations resulted in interesting discussions and information sharing on various experiences between the Councillors, Council representatives and the Georges Riverkeeper team in attendance, and lots of great questions for the presenters.
The meeting concluded with the next General Committee Meeting being scheduled for 18 May 2023 at Wollondilly Shire Council.
