The nine people arrested at the Goulburn abattoir yesterday appear in the local court next month.


It is believed their presence at the local worksite was part of a nationally co-ordinated campaign by animal activists.


It is further believed that they belong to an organisation which goes by the name Legion DX.


All nine have been charged with trespass and hindering police with three also charged with resisting arrest.


These latter charges relate to the individuals allegedly refusing to walk to a police conveyance, thereby having to be carried by officers.


All are from Sydney, except a 61 year old woman who is from Canberra.


They will appear in the Goulburn court across three sittings next month, on the15th, 22nd and 29th.

Goulburn Mulwaree council's Operational Plan will be placed on public exhibition this week and the community is being invited to comment.


The plan for 2019/20 proposes an ambitious list of capital works including construction of the Performing Arts Centre, the Japanese garden in Victoria Park, upgrades to the Waste management centre and other projects.


Increases in fees are also being suggested- a quarter of a per cent in both sewerage availability and user charges and the same rise in water usage and for having water available.


The domestic waste charge is proposed to rise by seven and a half per cent with the rural waste fee to face a 12 and a half per cent increase.


A report to council says commerical waste charges would rise from four to six and a half per cent with all tipping fees increasing by about seven and a half per cent.


Public comment on the Operational plan will be taken until the 17th of May.
