Purpose of Report
To Inform Council and community of activities and to provide the community at large with information that is important and noteworthy.
¬†What‚Äôs been happening‚Ä¶‚Ä¶
The survey relating to proposed changes of the Sealink NT Mandorah Ferry timetable has now closed. Results should be available in the next month.
The Kenbi Land Claim settlement map has been released. There is very little impact on council property. Some residents have contacted me in relation to the closure of some of the roads on the Cox Peninsula. However, we have known for the last 2 years that this would happen. Some areas are still able to be accessed and some of these areas require a permit. Enquiries should be directed to the NLC
Belyuen Community Government Council has sought to amalgamate with Coomalie Council. This will have no effect on Wagait Shire Council. We will continue to remain independent. Wagait Shire Council will be keen to work with the new council on some shared services, in order to keep our costs down.
The CEO has commenced work on the 5-year Strategic Plan with feedback from the public meeting as well as the council workshop held recently. The 5-year strategic plan should be available in April.
