Comments Off on Gojan: Amalgamation will leave ‘‘bitter taste’’

Merrylands Chamber of Commerce president Mariya Gojan is the latest face in Holroyd council’s anti-amalgamation campaign.

Amalgamation will leave Holroyd business owners with a ‘‘bitter taste’’ when the city’s town centres are ‘‘left behind Parramatta’s’’, said Merrylands Chamber of Commerce president Mariya Gojan.

Mrs Gojan, the latest face in the council’s anti-amalgamation campaign – which has so far cost ratepayers $10, 620.61 – fears amalgamation would put plans to revitalise the Merrylands and Wentworthville town centres on the backburner.

‘‘The current amalgamation proposal indicates there is a lot of debt that has to be absorbed, and it’s a dire outcome for Holroyd’s local business owners who will be forced to wait their turn in a long queue behind Parramatta, Ryde and Auburn,’’ Mrs Gojan said.

‘‘Amalgamation is going to slow down the improvements we’ve seen to our town centres in recent years and the plans Holroyd has for its growing population.’’

Mrs Gojan said it was time for owners to contribute to the amalgamation debate ‘‘before it’s too late’’.

‘‘I think it’s important that the business point of view is heard because amalgamation is going to affect who comes in and back to Holroyd for their shopping. For some business owners, staying neutral is a safe way to play but I’d encourage them to think again and speak up.’’
