Despite Shoalhaven City Council being viewed as "Fit for the Future", it has been proposed by the NSW State Government for Kiama Municpal Council and Shoalhaven City Council to merge.
An extraordinary meeting of Council was held on the 21st December to discuss the merger proposal.
It was resolved at the meeting that Council:
Request the General Manager to convene a councillor workshop in the New Year to fully discuss the “Positives” and “Negatives” of the proposed merger before Council makes its final determination;
Determine what issues and questions it would like to put to the Minister and/or Office of Local Government to seek more information; and
Provide information to all ratepayers & residents on the proposal following the workshop in part a).
