Councillors reaffirm opposition to electricity network sale

Gosford Council has resolved not to rescind its previous resolution and will still register its total opposition to the sale or lease of the publicly owned NSW electricity network and support the continued public ownership, operation and maintenance of the network.

The defeated rescission motion had sought for council to instead write to the NSW Premier and State Members to obtain assurances that the Gosford LGA will receive its fair and equitable share of any fi nancial gain from the leasing of the poles and wires project throughout NSW.
The rescission motion was put to council at its meeting of July 8 by Crs Jeff Strickson, Chris Burke and Deanna Bocking. It was supported by Cr Ward and rejected by the remaining six councillors present.
