Council in a strong financial position but affordability still the biggest issue
16 Oct 2009
Staff reported to the finance and monitoring committee on council's performance measures in a new look Annual Report. "Council takes measuring its performance very seriously," said finance and monitoring chair Craig Bauld. "Every year we set targets and then do our very best to achieve those targets. How well we do is measured in a variety of ways including ticket sales, resident satisfaction surveys, customer feedback and environmental testing. Last year council met or almost met (within 5%) 78 of its 107 performance targets. Areas we did well in include reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, managing our water supply despite a dry summer and responding to animal complaints, hazardous spills and rural fire calls. We are happy with this result but will strive to improve things like the time taken to resolve service requests, time to process building consents and to improve the return to council from our business units," Mr Bauld said.

No parking at night on Peel Street blue lines
5 Oct 2009
Look out for the broken bright blue lines painted on the road in Peel Street. They indicate the clearway that is now in place in Peel Street between Gladstone Road and Childers Road. Any vehicle parked in the clearway between 11pm and 5am Monday to Sunday, will get a $60 fine.  Any unoccupied vehicle will be issued a ticket and then towed from the area and placed in storage.  The owner of the vehicle then has to make arrangements with the towage firm to get their car back.  This is over and above the $60 fine. Signs have been erected and police will be reminding drivers about the clearway. After a short trial period, police will be issuing infringement fines from Sunday 18 October. Read more >>
