Mayor Michael Regan started off the new Council with a Mayoral Minute on Brookvale Oval (aka Lottoland).
This was to reaffirm his committment to getting an outcome with and for the community. The process was halted during the amalgamations and the Mayoral Minute was to make sure the process continued.
