Amendments are required to Local Law No. 5 (Parks, Jetties and Boat Ramps) 2011 to align with the Park Volunteer Framework. As a part of this framework Honorary Park Rangers will be transitioned to the ParkCare Program and will no longer be appointed specifically as Honorary Park Rangers. As Honorary Park Rangers will no longer exist, this provision within the local law needs to be removed.
The community has the opportunity to comment on the proposed amending local law during the community feedback period from 3 February until COB 28 February 2020.
