The General Manger
Randwick City Council
Dear General Manager
I ask you the following questions to prepare myself for the debate on the rescission motion submitted against the recent Councillors’ resolution to approve the 2017 Taste Of Coogee Festival.
QUESTION 1: Will a failure by the festival organisers to now submit to Council a completed event application (i.e. “Events and Activities Application Form for Parks, Reserves, Beaches and Parks”) invalidate the approval granted to them by the resolution to Councillor Brendan Roberts’ motion? In short, can they now proceed to hold the festival without any further requirements?
QUESTION 2: What, if any, binding level of indemnification of Council for accidents or damages has been committed to by the festival organisers in the absence of a completed event application? In short, are Council rate payers protected against any mistakes the organisers make?
QUESTION 3: Will Council retain any ability to force the festival organisers to submit an event application to provide indemnification if Tuesday night’s rescission motion submitted by myself and Councillors Shurey and Neilson is voted down?
