Light at end of ‘hard slog’

Robe Mayor Alison Nunan believes that her council is making good progress on a range of initiatives.

“It has been a bit of a hard slog of late but in the last week it feels as though much of the hard work that has been going on behind the scenes is coming to fruition,” Mayor Nunan said in her June monthly report.

“Our council received a strong report from the LGA Finance Authority which confirms what we already knew about the financial position of our council

“Our district tour went well and as always; we get a far better idea of what our ratepayers are wanting from us.

“The condition assessments on the roads makes for uncomfortable reading but now we have a base from which we can work from and can provide ratepayers with clear information about our roads.”

Mayor Nunan said the public consultation on the 2022/23 draft budget wad business plan was drawing to a close.

“We will assess the feedback before adopting the plan,” she said.

“Our 2050 survey initiative has gone through some testing and will be launched to the community soon.

“This piece of work will determine our direction into the future and will set the tone for the next group of elected members.

“It will be exciting to see what our community truly thinks about the future of our district.

“We are still working through the challenges of some of the Robe District Council leases but there is definite progress which is encouraging.

“The highlight of the month was spending time with two of the Robe Primary School classes to discuss all things council.

“Their questions were well thought out and it’s interesting to hear what they think council does.

“They possibly know more than most on some subjects!”
