Elector review near complete

Wattle Range Council is nearing the end of its mandated elector representation review.

The council held a special meeting in Millicent last week with brief consideration given by elected members to a further consultant’s report.

Members then again gave their in-principle support to the status quo structure of council.

Councillors want to maintain the structure of a mayor, eleven councillors and four wards which has existed since the council was formed in 1997.

The meeting then moved into confidence for almost 30 minutes when Burchard’s Pit was discussed.

The Tantanoola quarry has been the subject of numerous confidential staff reports and discussions for several months.

Council also held an informal meeting in Millicent on Tuesday night when marketing strategies and long-term land use were among the topics canvassed.
