Griffith City Council and Griffith Business Chamber should put aside their petty squabbling and work together for the good of Griffith, community leaders say.
The comments come in the aftermath of a heated dispute between council and chamber executives, who have been at each other's throats for years.
The feud reached boiling point last week when councillors voted unanimously to withdraw their membership from the business chamber.
The Area News spoke to community leaders, business owners, and ordinary residents, who all agreed they wanted to see an end to the quarrelling.
President of the Community and Development Council and the Multicultural Council Carmel La Rocca said she'd had enough of all the unproductive bickering.
"The community is tired of the squabbling," Ms La Rocca said.
"This has to come to an end somehow."
Griffith Combined Pensioners and Superannuants Association president Peter Knox said more important issues were being ignored by council and the chamber.
"The cost of living has never been harder for pensioners, and all this feuding isn't helping," Mr Knox said.
"While they're fighting amongst themselves there are more important things that are not being done."
"They're both to blame," Ms Turnell said.
"While they're fighting like schoolkids other towns are getting the job done and progressing while Griffith will remain stagnant," she said.
Griffith City Council and Griffith Business Chamber executives will meet to discuss the contents of a scathing submission sent in by the business chamber.
Councillors say they're uninformed, unfair, unproductive criticisms from the sidelines, while business chamber executives insist they're valid criticisms made in the interests of the community.
Whether or not they will put aside their differences and live in harmony remains an open question.
