No Declarations of Interest received.
At this stage of the meeting the Committee moved RP-3 SISTER CITY PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS to be considered first.
The Committee discussed merchandise that is able to be purchased for the promotion of Council’s Sister Cities, such as stubby holders, sister city badges, tea towels, bigger Wagga Wagga flags. It was discussed that the preferred option of merchandise should be of individual countries and not to combine all countries onto products.
A discussion was held regarding the badges that had previously been made that include all four countries that are Sister Cities for Wagga Wagga City Council.
