NM7/15    Notice of Motion from Cr Bowen - Impact of electricity privatisation to Randwick Council budget (F2004/06424)

33/15

RESOLUTION: (Bowen/Moore) that Council with over 10,000 electrically powered public and street lights throughout Randwick City, at a cost of over $1.5 million per annum for this lighting, views with concern the State Government proposal to sell the State’s Electrical Transmission and Distribution Network (poles & wires). Recent studies show  power costs will most likely increase under this policy and in order to protect council services and ratepayer funds:

 

1.   Calls upon the State Government to abandon its policy to privatise the electricity network in NSW; and

2.   States its opposition to the privatisation of NSW public electricity assets.

 

At this point in the meeting Cr Garcia declared a non-significant non pecuniary interest in this matter as the report referred to was commissioned by the Kelly Institute of which he is a Fellow.

 

AMENDMENT: (Roberts/Stavrinos) that Council with over 10,000 electrically powered public and street lights throughout Randwick City, at a cost of over $1.5 million per annum for this lighting, welcomes the State Government proposal to lease 40% of the State’s Electrical Transmission and Distribution Network (poles & wires) and notes that this will put downward pressure on power costs.

RESOLVED: (PROCEDURAL MOTION) (Bowen/Matson) that the meeting be extended until 12.30am.

Given Community concern about the UAP proposal Council immediately seek confirmation from the NSW Planning Minister that:
