Registration to speak at the public inquiries into councils merging closed today at midday, despite being advertised as 9am the day prior to the meetings.

Although the council boundary reviews website said registrations to attend and speak will close at 9am the day prior to the meetings, a spokesperson for the government said they in fact closed today. 

President of the Dalgety district and community association believed the state government may have their own agenda when it comes to the public inquiries on the merging, due to the inconsistent details on the meetings.
