Last state election the Liberal-National Government split Sunbury from the City of Hume. They relied on a poll with limited details being released.
Along with many local residents, the ASU believed that this decision would increase costs for residents and decrease services.
Labor stopped the process. Independent auditors found the process lacked adequate community consultation and had failed to explain the impact on local residents. They recommended against the split because it would lead to:
- Increased rates of up to 14%;
- Reduced services.
Now, the Liberals have said they still want to split Sunbury from Hume.
Under the Liberals you’ll get half the Council, at twice the price. Increased costs, decreased services.
