Snowy Advisory Committee open for nominations


Thursday, 21 December 2017

Member for Monaro John Barilaro said nominations are now being sought from people interested in applying to join the Snowy Advisory Committee (SAC) with the group to be operational in the New Year.

Mr Barilaro said the committee aims to strike the right balance between community interests, technical expertise and Government representation.

“SAC members will allow greater transparency of environmental water strategies in the Snowy Mountains and boost the health of the Snowy River even further,” Mr Barilaro said.

“We are looking for people with expertise, knowledge, and skills in the management of water for environmental, Aboriginal and/or local community values.”

Minister for Regional Water, Niall Blair said the make-up of the new committee will include representatives from both NSW and Victoria.

“The new committee will ensure all stakeholders are represented fairly as well as allowing for additional specialised expertise to be incorporated when required,” Mr Blair said.

All positions are available on the SAC, including the appointment of an independent Chair. Appointments will be for up to three years, commencing in early 2018.

Enquiries may be directed to Jeremy Kinley, NSW Department of Industry-Water on (02) 6229 7314 or at jeremy.kinley@dpi.nsw.gov.au.

Final applications must be lodged by 16 February 2018.
