Due to ongoing matters regarding insurance, the general meeting of the RHVA scheduled for Saturday 16 November 2019 has been cancelled. This is most regrettable, but the RHVA executive considers the association to be in a precarious position, and that cancellation pending resolution of these issues is the most prudent course of action.
In short, meetings of community consultative bodies (CCBs) such as the RHVA are covered by council for public liability. However, council does not provide public liability cover for events other than CCB meetings, nor does it provide cover for matters such as defamation. Obtaining this additional cover comes at a cost of over $1200, which is difficult for our small association to accommodate, and reduces the ability of the RHVA to help fund community projects.
The executive is continuing to try to resolve this issue with council. Any suggestions as to how money to cover this insurance might be raised by the community would gratefully received.
In the meantime, as listed below, there are MANY current issues that will likely be of interest to members, including current and pending developments (Manyana Beach Estate and Inyadda Drive). Information pertaining to most of these issues can be found on this website (e.g. in posts below and under Correspondence In/Out, Community Projects and Latest Hot Topics).
