Artificial Turf back on the agenda with new Council

At the first meeting of the newly elected Marrickville Council the presidents of the Stanmore Hawks and Dulwich Hill FC attended.  Joe Pinto from Dulwich Hill FC told the Council that the newly installed natural turf surface was in a bad condition and pleaded for Council to consider installing artificial turf.

New Mayor, Victor Macri moved for Council to receive a report on the condition of the turf.  He was supported by Labor Councillor Sam Iskandar.

Greens Councillor Max Phillips told the meeting that Council should not reignite the divisions in the community that accompanied the first flirtation with artificial turf at Arlington Oval.
