A Public Meeting about the future of Blue Haven was held at the Pavilion last Thursday and attended by over 200 locals, with many of them being workers and residents at Blue Haven.
Speakers included the Chair of the Blue Haven Residents committee who strongly objected to any sale. Stuart Geddes of the United Services Union told Kiama Community Radio that the meeting unanimously called for all actions towards a sale to be stopped by Kiama Council and that council employ a reputable independent charted accounting firm working in aged care to do an independent assessment of finances.
The firm Stuart and Browne was recommended and accepted by the meeting.
The newly elected member for Gilmore Fiona Phillips told the meeting that she would pursue further funding from the new federal government to ensure Blue Haven would stay in council ownership.
