City set to support Government’s merger plan

The decision was made after a confidential discussion at the August 26 council meeting. The council plans to make a submission in line with the government’s proposal, either jointly with the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale or otherwise, to the Local Government Advisory Board by October 4.

The proposal to split Serpentine-Jarrahdale was first put forward by the City of Armadale at the so-called ‘G20’ meeting of mayors earlier this year.
