GURINGAI FESTIVAL


The debate around the table brought out the issue that the Guringai Festival was already budgeted for to the value of $15,000 and waiting for direction.

What was missing was the co-contributions from the other 8 councils that also participate and a need to refocus the future planning of the 3 co-chairs and participating Councils to share the events around.

Notice of Motion

Cr De Luca / Cr Sprott

That this Council resolves to restore funding to the Guringai Festival and work with the Festival Chairs to seek a way forward and to allocate the unspent $25,000 proposed for the Palm Beach Movie to fund this.
