Re; Amalgamation Townsville - Thuringowa.
The Mayor of Townsville is urging the residents of
the region to write to the Commision and have a say and is further
saying that we won't be given a real say in this matter of
amalgamation. So what is the point in writing to the Commision
If it is a "Forced amalgamation", as the Mayor is
suggesting and Thuringowa City Council is strongly against an
amalgamation all comments about the plan of an amalgamation would be
Never mind, personally I beleive that an
amalgamation could be done successfully if the new entired structure
could change name and not be named "Townsville" or "Thuringowa", in
the future. A name competion could be a great idea to launch during
the Celebration of QLD 2009.
I have already proposed a new name for the merged
cities to be: Queensland City.
Like New York is named twice, New York City and the
New York State.
Further more, I'm Sure that the new "City" would be
in a dire need of a new Mayor after its amalgamation.
Don't you think ?
