From Andrew Page in the Local Newsroom:

There are fears that the Snowy Mountains Neighbourhood Center may be forced to close its doors only 2 months after the completion of significant renovations.

The centre provides the community and winter visitors with free wi-fi, legal aid, low cost printing and a variety of other community services.

Like many other community organisations across the country, it receives it's funding from the Department of Social Services, but that money is now being cut under Abbott Government changes.

Country Labor Candidate for Monaro Steve Whan says if closed, a $40,000 waste of tax payers money, would be extremely embarrassing for the state member.

But Monaro MP John Barilaro has accused Mr Whan of not understanding what he is talking about and that he will speak to Eden-Monaro MP Dr. Peter Hendy about the funding.

From Andrew Page in the Local Newsroom:

The NSW Deputy Premiere Troy Grant has responded to community uncertainty surrounding Council Amalgamations.

Under the NSW Governments Fit For the Future Policy, all NSW Councils will be required to prove their financial viability by June this year.

The Snowy River Shire and Bombala Mayors have expressed concerns that there is not enough time for Community Consultation before big decisions will have to be made.

But the Deputy Premiere says Councils are in full control of their destiny.
