Yesterday the Ombudsman tabled a report in Parliament — Investigation into three councils’ outsourcing of parking fine internal reviews. The report makes three recommendations for reform to the State Government and two recommendations for the three councils subject to the review — including Glen Eira City Council.
The Program supports not-for-profit community-based organisations and groups to carry out projects and activities that contribute to the liveability, accessibility, health and safety of Glen Eira.
Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said Council is committed to investing in the community, especially in the volunteer groups that do so much for so many people across the municipality.
“Our volunteers really are the lifeblood of our community and contribute so much. It is a very productive and appropriate use of ratepayer funds to support them in this way — and we are proud to do so,” she said.
“Community Strengthening Grants of up to $10,000 will be available to community groups and organisations to initiate and run community activities, projects and events.”
Applications for the Program close Monday 27 April.
