For all the latest Council news, media releases and editorial publications.
In the upcoming month Council will vote on the 2019/2020 Council Budget. We have already had several Council Workshops directly related to the budget and it will now formally go to the 24 June 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting.
During the last month I attended a variety of events including Ordinary Meetings of our seven Local District Committees.
Myself and General Manager Des Jennings met with John Tucker MP to discuss what’s been happening in the Northern Midlands and some of the upcoming projects we are about to embark on with funding support we received from the re-elected Federal Government.
I spent some time with our new Youth Officer who advised me that the Northern Midlands is severely lacking in support services for our youth. In particular in the area of mental health and wellbeing. I have since spoken to other Mayors and Councillors from other Councils about the need for better state-wide support services for our youth.
I am saddened to see the Avoca Church closing and will attend the final service on Sunday 23 June at 9:30am. I hope to see many familiar faces there.
Within my spare time (which was very limited!) I spent some hours working in my garden with my husband Bradley in the winter sun.
