Amid suggestions that Local Government Joint Organisations should become self-funded, Goulburn Mulwaree Mayor, Bob Kirk has disputed the assertion.

 

A report to Goulburn Mulwaree councillors recently stated that the Office of Local Government was looking at ways that Joint Organisations could be self funded.

 

This came amid news that state government seed funding for the joint bodies would soon come to an end.

 

While Goulburn Mulwaree mayor, Kirk concedes the success of the Canberra Region Joint group, he says it could not continue without government input.
