Late last week, we released our Financial Management Review report to the media and our residents as we want our community to know exactly what our position is and the challenges we face. The report is an independent review of how we have historically managed our finances and, most importantly, how we can improve.
The good news is we can only improve, and for those of you who have read the report, there will many who are not surprised. If you haven’t read the report, you can find it on the Council website homepage, and I encourage you to have a look.
Financially we are not in a good position, and we won’t be in a good financial position for years to come. We will turn this around, but it will take time, a lot of work and some very hard decisions from both Councillors and staff.
We need to deal with the hand we’ve been given, which means that this Council is looking at all options on how we cut our spending, while at the same time increasing our commitment to our core services – our residents deserve to drive on decent roads.
So how do we do this? By looking at every program, service and project and ask ourselves, do we need to do this now; is it value for money; will it support local employment; and will this have direct benefit for our residents? If the answer is no, then you may see projects postponed or cancelled as we need to live within our means.
This is what we’re dealing with and in four years’ time, the community can judge whether we have addressed the priority areas that we know the community need. We may make mistakes, and if we do, we need to tell people.
Mayor Glen Hartwig
