Letter to Cr Cynthia Watson Mayor of the City of Boroondara on 17th July 2020.

Lighter Footprints welcomes the opportunity to comment on the City of Boroondara’s Proposed Budget for 2020-2021. While these consultations are a requirement under the legislation, we ask that the Council move beyond mere compliance to put in place a consultative process that enables more meaningful community involvement. Such things as starting consultations much earlier in the budget negotiations and greater availability of relevant information would ensure a more meaningful prospect for the community to influence the results of these deliberations.
