  • We asked the Councillors who had voted to replace Evan Christen on the Coastal Advisory Committee what the reason for their decision was. Their reasons ranged from: (1) bound by confidentiality not to say, (2) to give the committee a broader community base,  (3) he knows the alternate who will greatly assist the work, and (4) considered the balance of the group would be enhanced. Three councillors did not respond. We are yet to follow up on this.
  • Shoalhaven Tourism rang and wrote us an email responding to our questions about special events and tourism management, their response.
