News in brief

Murder house under the hammer

A house in Rozelle that was the site of a 2009 double murder is up for auction at the end of this month.

Property developer Albert Frisoli and his brother Mario were found dead in the lounge room of the Goodsir Street house five years ago.

Giuseppe Di Canni, a former business associate of Albert Frisoli, was sentenced to 30 years in prison last September for the killings.

Real estate agents must disclose any so-called ‘material facts’ that may influence a potential buyer’s decision to make an offer or put in a bid.

Mention will not be made on brochures and leaflets, but if anyone makes an enquiry, the agent must disclose the grisly details.

The property is expected to sell for more than $2 million on May 31.

Council votes for shorter meetings

Leichhardt councillors will delegate more and discuss less under a new system designed to make council meetings more brief.

Council passed a motion put forward by Labor councillor Linda Kelly and Leichhardt mayor Darcy Byrne which would see meetings start half an hour earlier than usual at 6:30pm. The first 30 minutes would be dedicated to agenda items before the public is able to speak to issues.

Council will also formally review the committee structure, examining their terms of reference, member composition, frequency of meetings and decision-making authority, as well as delegating more work to the general manager.

Rugby union player dies

Balmain Rugby Club dedicated their wins on the following weekend to their fallen teammate and held a fundraiser on May 18 in his honour.

Mosman club offcials and the NSW Waratahs communicated their condolences.
