The proposal to merge MidCoast Council with MidCoast Water is on public exhibition until 12 April. Details of the proposal and explanations on how to make a submission can be found here: http://www.midcoast.nsw.gov.au/Have-Your-Say/MidCoast-Council-and-MidCoa...

How will this merger affect North Arm Cove?

Probably not very much - given that we have neither sewer nor town water and are unlikely to be provided with those services in the foreseeable future. Possibly there will be some side effects.

There is an expected $3million in savings but, on previous experience, none of that will head our way....

We've had a bit of rain of late so perhaps our tanks are brimming or nearly full. There is no State election imminent. You would be forgiven for thinking this story is coming at the wrong time! (It's not.) Please do read on anyway!

(2015-2019).

Whilst this will set the dogs barking at North Arm Cove , these decisions are requirements for public...
