Fanancial Success Strategy

Artificial turf on Arlington Reserve is NOT a done deal!

Our second last chance is approaching – it CAN be stopped during Council’s draft budget process.

With so many costs mentioned but not itemised in Council’s report on options for Arlington Reserve in February, we think it’ll be a blow-out budget.

Some Councillors promise usage of Arlington won’t increase with artificial turf, but this contradicts Council’s own reports that it must increase to be economical, AND it would be financially negligent of Council to spend $2M+ on artificial turf in a location that can’t be fully utilised without serious impact on residents.  If installed, Council would soon come under enormous pressure to ‘fully utilise an expensive tax-payer-funded artificial turf field’.

Your rate-payer funds are at risk of being mis-spent in a location least suited to it.

Let your Councillors know what you think:  councillors@marrickville.nsw.gov.au   (This address is received by all 12 Councillors)

As details of Council’s budget emerge, we’ll update you here.
