A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 25 November 2020 A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 25 November 2020

This week, myself and councillors hosted Alan MacSporran QC. 

Mr MacSporran is the chair of the Crime and Corruption Commission and was in town to speak with Councillors and myself to a range of topics. 

The CCC are not just an enforcement body.

They perform a range of functions which assist in the regulation of local governments.

But, local government, by its very nature can only function in conjunction with community. This partnership is a marriage or sorts. 

While Council and the community may not always see eye-to-eye, at the end of the day council is there to support our residents. 

However, Council relies on many individuals, groups, organisations and services in order to deliver what we need to. 

And although our core business is roads, rates, rubbish and water, this doesn’t mean we should exclude work that involves, engages and captures the community spirit we possess here in spades.   

For example, Council will soon be asking you to assist us with our waste management planning.  

Council is forming a reference group to help plan for the future of our waste facilities. Examples like this show how residents can have direct input into the direction of council.  

Council also works closely with emergency services in planning for, during and recovering from natural disasters and works in conjunction with tourism bodies and representatives from a host of industries. The partnerships are under the mandate of helping this region prosper.
