Thousands of dollars has been ripped out of the Manly economy thanks to the Minns Labor Government’s decision to slash the former Coalition Government’s Back to School Vouchers.
Member for Manly, James Griffin said the program, which had been hugely popular, gave parents three $50 vouchers per child to help with the cost of school supplies, uniforms and technology.
“As parents and students prepare for a new school year, the pain of this decision is being felt right across our local community."
Local police ranks have been bolstered with the arrival of more police in the Northern Beaches Police District.
Five more probationary constables have commenced duties in the district today following a formal graduation ceremony in Goulburn on Friday.
Member for Manly, James Griffin welcomed the new officers and thanked them for choosing the Police as a vocation.
Member for Manly, James Griffin has welcomed the start of preliminary work to redevelop Manly Cove West, which includes the former Sea Life building (Manly Aquarium).
Mr Griffin said the early works will comprise site investigations in the water, around the existing boardwalk and within the former Sea Life building itself. For a few days, the work will include concrete core drilling.
“Sea level and coastal studies will also be undertaken to understand the impacts on the Manly West Esplanade beach following the planned demolition of the former Sea Life building,” Mr Griffin said.
