Regional council tender talks held

Regional council tender talks held

Wattle Range Council made six significant financial decisions last week on the eve of going into a caretaker period lasting two months.

Councils across South Australia are temporarily obliged to curb such decisions on account of the four-yearly council elections.

Wattle Range Council convened a special council meeting in Millicent and held confidential talks lasting almost an hour to consider various tenders and contracts.

In all cases, council has delegated its authority to its chief executive Ben Gower to carry out its wishes.

Council will enter an agreement for services with Sea-Slip Pontoons & Products Pty Ltd for the design, supply and installation of the boat ramp pontoons at the Beachport recreational boat ramp.

Blackbird Industries has won the tender for the design and construction of the new Millicent Depot workshop shed.

Sproutt Pty Ltd has been appointed to develop detailed designs for main streetscaping in the Millicent and Penola township.

A new Case Farmall 95c tractor, McConnel reach mower and a Green Acres spray unit will be purchased from Sebastopol Machinery while council will buy a Hino GH18-28 Tilt Tray Truck from the Barry Maney Group.

Council considered tenders for the location, flushing and condition assessment of wastewater and stormwater services.

Mr Gower was then authorised to enter into a contract with Plumbing and Pipeline Solutions (SA) Pty Ltd and Robe Plumbing Service, based on a schedule of rates for five years.

The dollar value of the various tenders and contracts were not contained in the six motions and will be announced at a later time.
