\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT\PROJECTS\URBAN STREETSCAPE PROJECT - VILLAGE ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM - 537904

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT a workshop be held at the conclusion of Council meeting.

 

General Manager's REPORT

 

Councillors would recall wide ranging discussions at Future Directions in November 2012 regarding town image (positives/negatives) and the general short comings of the now discontinued Village Enhancement Program (VEP).

 

Councillors would also recall approving the discontinuation of the VEP program and returning the funds to the Capital Works Reserve pending identification of specific programs.  Concurrent with ceasing the VEP the Coordination Taskforce was tasked with a) undertaking an audit into the existence (or otherwise) and condition of 'base line' facilities within each town and b) commencing a study into the movement, image and legibility characteristics of parts of Molong.  This project is titled the Molong Movement, Image and Legibility Study (MMILS).

 

The facilities audit is not the subject of this report, however it is relevant to the MMILS.

 

The MMILS is intended to examine the experience visitors and residents have of the town (ie its image) and how they navigate around/through it and what options might be available to improve these attributes of the town and its enjoyment by residents and visitors.

 

The project will limit its focus to the town approaches, through roads, Main Street and other key attributes (eg Rec, river) and linkages to these attributes.

 

The project team plans to utilise the KISS (keep it simple) principle and focus its initial efforts upon lower cost/higher impact initiatives, including an examination of the current and potential maintenance costs and opportunities. Many of these maintenance elements have already been further investigated and have been dissected into precincts and specific elements.

 

The associated costs of the maintenance of these precincts and elements demonstrate the importance of keeping this project simple and focusing on lower cost/higher impact opportunities.

 

Notwithstanding this 'simple' approach, the project team intends to develop a continuum of opportunities ranging from lower cost through to those of a more substantial nature for consideration.

 

The initial stages of the project may include limited public consultation; however the form that consultation might take is not yet resolved.

 

Molong has been selected as the initial trial town. This is due solely to it housing the council administration and therefore enabling easy access to the study area by staff. Once the project team considers the project methodology is sound a sister project will be commenced at Canowindra. Other towns may be considered in future years.

 

Currently no funds other than staff wages have been expended. A budget for both towns will be proposed for professional services to assist the project and which are not available internally.

 

Councillor input into this project is welcomed. It is suggested a 1 hour workshop be convened at the conclusion of the March meeting.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council:

 

1.      Hold the June Committees on 10 June, 2014.

 

2.      Hold extra-ordinary Council meetings on 2 May and 10 June, 2014 as required under the IP&R process.

 

Director of Finance and Corporate Services' REPORT

 

Council staff are well progressed in the development of the Draft Operational Plan and Budget for the 2014/15 year and at this stage it is anticipated that Councillors will be provided with a copy of the draft on the April Council meeting day.

 

In order to consider the Draft Operational Plan and associated documentation, Council needs to hold an extraordinary meeting on May Committee day (6 May 2014), at that time Council will resolve to advertise the draft plan inviting submissions.

 

In order to consider the submissions received, Council needs to hold an extraordinary meeting and allow 28 days for advertising. It is proposed that Council move the June Committees back by one week and hold the Committee meeting on 10 June 2014 and also conduct an Extraordinary Council meeting on that day to consider any submissions received.

 

Council will then consider/adopt the Final Plan at the June Council meeting day (24 June 2014), subject to Council agreeing with the recommendation in the General Manger’s report on the National Assembly of Local Government.

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\ROADS and BRIDGES\MAINTENANCE\REMOVAL AND TRIMMING OF ROADSIDE TREES AND GRASS - 537692

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT Council adopt the Clear Zone Policy

 

Design Manager's REPORT

 

A report was presented to the November 2013 Council meeting in regards to a proposed Clear Zone Policy.

 

Council has developed a policy for specification of clear zones on Council’s local roads, based on the Berrigan Shire Council’s Roadside Hazard Treatment Policy adopted in January 2012.

 

In providing a safe roadside for vehicles, clear zones specified by road design guides are impossible to retrofit, due to physical, financial and environmental constraints. Council has developed this policy to provide guidance on clear zones for existing local roads.

 

Council resolved (13/11/23):

 

“THAT Council place the following Draft Policy for Clear Zones on public exhibition for a period of 4 weeks and invite comment from stakeholders to be considered at a future Council meeting.”

 

Council has exhibited the Draft Policy throughout December and January on its website, and advertised in the Central Western Daily, and has received no comment in regards to the proposal.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council:

 

1.      Consider any matters for motions which reside within one of the          three themes to be submitted for consideration at the 2014 National         General Assembly with a view to formulating these at the April Council meeting.

 

2.      Authorise the attendance of the Mayor and the General Manager to the      2014 National General Assembly.

 

3.      Conduct the June Ordinary Council meeting on Tuesday 24 June 2014.

 

 

General Manager's REPORT

 

The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) has made a call for motions for this year’s National General Assembly to be held in Canberra from 15 - 18 June.

 

The ALGA is calling for motions under this year’s theme “Getting Down to Business”.  The theme reflects the renewed focus across all levels of government on the roles and responsibilities of the public sector and the challenges of meeting community needs.

 

To be eligible for inclusion motions must follow the principles:

 

·        Fall under the NGA theme;

·        Be relevant to the work of local government nationally; and

·        Complement or build on the policy objectives of state or territory association

 

To assist councils in the preparation of motions a discussion paper has been made available which has been emailed to Councillors.  Alternatively, it can be accessed through the National General Assembly website at www.alga.asn.au.

 

Motions must be submitted by Thursday 17 April to be considered for inclusion at the 2014 National General Assembly.

 

Council will need to give consideration to its attendance at the NGA by the Mayor or his representative and the General Manager.  It should be noted however, that the NGA does coincide with Council’s June Council meeting which is scheduled for Tuesday 17 June 2014, therefore it is suggested that the June meeting be conducted one week later on Tuesday 24 June 2013.  This will also assist with the preparation of Committee reports and agendas, as it will be necessary to move June committee day back one week to 10 June, because of the 28 day advertising period associated with Council’s IP&R requirements.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council determine how it wishes to deal with the caveat on the title deed of the Canowindra Retirement Village Project Land.

 

Director of Finance and Corporate Services' REPORT

 

The Canowindra Retirement Village Project Association Incorporated has written to Council advising that a new committee has been formed to re-vitalise the project and requesting that Council give favourable consideration to releasing the caveat on the title deed in order for the association to approach the Bendigo Bank for financing.

 

A history of the project is as follows:-

 

·        Council conducted a survey to enable the acquisition of the land from the ARTC (November 2005 Council meeting)

·        Payment of legal costs to the value of $3,000 (November 2005 Council meeting)

·        Provision of a housing grant to the value of $20,000 (November 2006 Council meeting)

·        Provision of a housing loan to the value of $66,000 (increased in October 2006 to include the value of GST)

·        Considerable in kind support from various Council staff members

·        Council agreed to make available a loan with an updated value of up to $80,180.90 to the Canowindra Retirement Village Committee to purchase the land from Council (February 2008 Council meeting)

·        A further $20,000 loan to enable the association to complete the requirements of their development application (May 2010 Council meeting)

 

A caveat was placed on the title to the land as security over the loan. The caveat is the only security that Council has.

 

The association have had a number of changes to membership over the years and have indicated they are now confident they can progress with the project to the construction stage. They have however indicated that they require additional funds to finance the detailed planning and to give support to a proposed developer. To this end they are seeking Council giving favourable consideration to releasing the caveat held over the property.

 

Council can either:-

 

·        Decline the request and meet with the Association to determine whether it can assist in some other manner, or

·        Remove the caveat and have no security over the $100,180.90 loan.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council undertake further investigation in relation to the need for car parking in Canowindra prior to determining whether it wishes to sell the former SES building in Ryall Street, Canowindra.

 

Director of Finance and Corporate Services' REPORT

Council has received a strong enquiry regarding the possible purchase of the former SES building in Ryall Street, Canowindra. The people making the enquiry have inspected the building and outbuildings twice in recent weeks and have indicated they would be strongly interested in purchasing the property depending on Council nominating a purchase price.

The land had initially been identified for sale as part of the funding source for the new SES building and Council Depot in Armstrong Avenue. However, this proposal had been put on hold pending investigation into the feasibility and need for car parking due to a perceived parking problem in Gaskill Street.

Council should undertake a study to determine the need for car parking and if no need could be established then the land would be surplus to Council’s requirements.

 

ITEM 17 - REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE WITH LEGAL COSTS - CANTERBURY CITY COUNCIL

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\GOVERNMENT RELATIONS\LOCAL AND REGIONAL LIAISON\LOCAL GOVERNMENT and SHIRES ASSOCIATIONS - ASSISTANCE WITH LEGAL COSTS - 534107

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT Council contribute $303.59 towards assistance with legal costs incurred in relation to Canterbury City Council.

 

Administration Manager's REPORT

 

Advice has been received from Local Government NSW that the former Associations' Joint Committee considered a report and resolved to approve an application for legal assistance by Canterbury City Council.

 

The matter concerns a land locked piece of land that was purchased by a private owner with no legal access to a public road.  The land was previously owned by the RTA (now RMS), who informed Council of their intention to sell the land to the adjoining owners.  In 2006 the land was subject to an LEP that rezoned the land as residential and included a provision requiring the land have suitable road access before any approval could be given.

 

The RTA proceeded to sell the property on the open market without consulting Council.  The new owner contacted Council and sought an easement to the public road over land zoned as Open Space and classified as Community land.  Council informed the owner that it did not have the power to do this.  The owner then made an application to the Supreme Court of NSW to impose an easement over the Council land, which was granted.

 

Council has argued that, if allowed to stand, the decision will lower the bar for people seeking easements over community land and that the decision could have major adverse implications for other councils in terms of undermining their attempts to protect public recreation land from alienation for private purposes.

 

Cabonne Council's contribution in this matter is $303.59.

Annexures

1.  Draft Feral or Infant Companion Animals Management Policy

2.  Draft Swimming Pool Inspection Policy    

File Number

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\CORPORATE MANAGEMENT\POLICY\POLICY CORRESPONDENCE - 537565

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT the annexed draft Feral or Infant Companion Animals Management Policy and draft Swimming Pool Inspection Policy be adopted.

 

Administration Manager's REPORT

 

Feral or Infant Companion Animals Management Policy

Section 64 of the Companion Animals Act 1998 (the Act) allows that a seized animal, including surrendered animals that have not been claimed, may be sold or destroyed by Council if a relevant notice has been given and the animal has been held by Council for the required time.

 

Section 64(2) of the Act does make provision for the management of these feral and infant companion animals in that, “the council may, in accordance with any policy that has been adopted by the council in relation to the management of feral or infant companion animals, destroy the seized or surrendered animal concerned before the end of any such period referred to in subsection (1)”.

 

The proposed policy satisfies s64(2) and allows that, subject to a validation process, where companion animals which are seized or received under the Act are assessed as being “feral” or “infant” they may be humanely euthanased prior to the end of the required holding period as determined by the Companion Animals Act 1998.

 

Swimming Pool Inspection Policy

Council received a report via its Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee at the November meeting.   It advised that the NSW government carried out a comprehensive review of the Swimming Pools Act 1992 and identified a number of changes required to the Act aimed at increasing the safety of young children around private swimming pools.

 

The aim of the changes being to promote swimming pool safety and ensure compliance with pool barrier legislation. 

Local councils have a significant role in carrying out the new regime of inspections as well as promoting pool safety.  The overall aim of the new legislation is to reduce the incidence of drowning and near-drowning.

 

At that Committee meeting it was recommended that Council endorse the public exhibition of the Draft Swimming Pools Inspection Program.  Council endorsed the Committee’s recommendation at the subsequent Council meeting.

 

The exhibition process has been completed and no submissions were received.  A draft policy including the program is annexed.

The Pharmacy Location Rules

 

In previous discussions on this matter, Council has expressed concern the existing pharmacy licence at Eugowra may be relocated to another town or city after a certain period.

 

Subsequent enquiries with the Pharmacy Guild of Australia have clarified it is not possible to transfer the licence to a location outside Eugowra.

 

The Pharmacy Location Rules (the Rules) are a fundamental component of the Fifth Community Pharmacy Agreement between the Commonwealth of Australia (as represented by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing) and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia. This Agreement commenced 1 July 2010.

 

The Pharmacy in Eugowra was approved under Rule 131 of the Rules. Rule 131 requires the proposed premises to be at least 10 km, by the shortest lawful access route, from the nearest approved pharmacy. Under Rule 131 of the Pharmacy Location rule (page 39 of the Pharmacy Location Rules), the following restriction applies:

 

New approvals that are granted following an application made under Rule 131 can not under any circumstances relocate from the town in which the approval was originally granted. It may only be relocated within the same town.

 


BDAP Review

 

Following determination of the application detailed above, receipt of BDAP applications will be suspended pending a review of the program and amendment of the BDAP Guidelines and Application Forms.

2.           All Crown roads appearing on Council’s asset register be transferred into Council’s ownership.

3.           Council adopt the Road Maintenance policy as annexed.

 

Design Manager's REPORT

 

Council has received numerous letters from a resident of Rosella Place Mullion Creek requesting the 500m road be sealed.  The Design Manager has replied to the residents  correspondence declining his request due it being a Crown Road, however the resident is not accepting Council response.

 

Site Map.

 

 

 

 

Rosella Place Background.

1.      Prior to the creation of DP 1092893 “Rosella Place” was an unformed crown road.

2.      DP 1092893 was created under DA 2003/112.

3.      Referring to the above map, the section of Rosella Place coloured green is owned by Council the yellow is owned by Crown.

4.      Rosella Place was upgraded to a 6m gravel road and sign posted “Rosella Place” as a condition of consent within DA 2003/112.

5.      Council has maintained the Crown road by mistake in the past.

6.      There was been 7 dwellings erected within DP 1092893.  No dwellings have paid s94 contributions because the road is a Crown road (7 x $2689 = $18,823).

7.      There are 1607kms of rural local roads within Council’s asset register, 249kms of which are Crown Roads (eg, Rosella Place, Baldry Road, Davys Plains Road, Old Bocobra Road).

8.      Council reports 1607kms of rural local roads to the Federal Government for FAG funding for road maintenance.

In summary, Council has not levied s94 contributions on this road because it is a Crown road although Council has maintained this road.  The road appears on Council’s asset register and is reported to the Federal Government for FAG funding. 

Crown Roads appearing on Council’s Asset Register

As mentioned above there are 249kms of Crown roads Council has on its asset register (see Annexure 1). The capacity, quality and function of these roads all differ. In some cases the sealed road that would appear as a Council road is actually a Crown road. An example below is Forests Reefs Road.

 

For the purpose of establishing a consistent ownership of the subject Crown roads it is recommended that Council take ownership of the Crown roads that appear on Council’s asset register. If Council take ownership of these roads it will be able to apply Section 94 levies to developments that take place on the road.

Road Maintenance policy

The issues of maintaining Crown roads arises within the customer service function of Council’s engineering section often. Council’s Transport Asset Management Plan does set out a frequency and intervention level for the maintenance of Council owned roads but not Crown Roads.

As annexed (see Annexure 2) is a draft Road Maintenance policy for Council’s consideration for adoption. Council should note that this policy would need to be adopted in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 1993.

Design Manager's REPORT

 

Council has received correspondence from the National Parks and Wildlife Service requesting Council take over the ownership of a 1 kilometre section of Windus Road.

 

The subject part of Windus road runs along the western boundary of the Killonbutta State forest and is actually an access road vested in the Minster for the Environment under part 11 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.

 

The subject part of the “Part 11 Road” is built to a minimum standard and is bounded at either end by a Crown Road as shown highlighted in the map below. The transfer of the Crown portion of Windus Road is addressed within

another report at this Council meeting.

 

Crown roads highlighted map

Council has maintained Windus Road in the past and Windus Road is signposted with a Council road name sign the road does appear on Council’s asset register.

Director of Environmental Services' REPORT

 

Council has received correspondence from Mr Greg Wythes who recently acquired Lot 22 DP 32670, North Street, Canowindra, and subsequently sought and obtained development consent for the construction of an industrial building upon the land. The allotment was purchased from Council and is part of the North Canowindra Industrial Estate.

 

Mr Wythes has purchased a shed which he believes will be too large to be accommodated on his land. He requests that council donate the adjacent land (Lot 21) to him as that allotment is currently vacant.

 

Mr Wythes proposes to supply equipment for his drilling company as well as providing engineering services. A development application had previously been submitted by Mr Wythes for establishment of a fabrication business upon residential land in Robinson Street, South Canowindra. The application was considered by the Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee at its meeting of 3 September 2013, where following presentations from neighbourhood representatives it was resolved to defer the matter and seek additional information from the proponent.  No further information has been provided by Mr Wythes in regard to the development application, however shortly afterwards he recommenced negotiations with council for the purchase of the North Street industrial site.

 

A development application was subsequently lodged for Lot 22 DP 32670 on 19 November 2013. The application contained limited information and additional information was sought from the applicant. Development consent and a Construction Certificate were issued on 20 January 2014.

Recommendation

 

THAT council call for expressions of interest for selective tenderers to undertake the site remediation of the former Molong Gasworks site.

 

Director of Environmental Services' REPORT

 

Council at its confidential meeting of 25 June 2012 resolved to accept a tender for the remediation of the former Molong gasworks site subject to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) signifying compliance prior to awarding the contract.

 

As council will be aware the contract could not be awarded due to the second part of the resolution remaining outstanding. Council has facilitated a review of the background documentation to the project and has been working with the EPA towards preparation of a Voluntary Management Plan (VMP) for endorsement, to enable the site remediation to proceed. Recently EPA has advised that the Remediation Action Plan (RAP), the revised Remediation Works Schedule (RWS) and the revised Groundwater Monitoring Program are adequate and the preparation of the VMP should be prepared by council to reflect the documents.

 

The EPA has also granted an extension of time to council to December 2014 to comply with the remediation requirements associated with the classification of the site as Contaminated Land.

 

The remediation process is a specialist one, and the geology / hydrology of the Molong former gasworks site makes it both difficult and unique to manage. With this in mind it is suggested that council prepare documentation and call for expressions of interest from suitably qualified remediation contractors for the remediation of the site. It is also suggested that council (with consultant support where required) proceed with preparation of the VMP for submission to the EPA  based upon the RAP, revised RWS and the revised ground water monitoring program.

5 Scope

This policy applies to all rural roads for which Council is the Roads Authority

The scope of assessment has been limited to roads that have a 100km/h speed limit as they constitute the majority of road length and are considered to be the highest risk due to vehicles travelling at higher speed.

7 Definitions

AADT                              Average Annual Daily Traffic

Clear Zone                   A clear zone is the area of adjacent to the traffic lane that should be kept free from features that would be potentially hazardous to errant vehicles. The clear zone is a compromise between the recovery area for every errant vehicle, the cost of providing that area and the probability of an errant vehicle encountering a hazard. The clear zone should be kept free of non-frangible hazards where economically and environmentally possible. Alternatively, hazards within the clear zone should be treated to make them safe or be shielded by a safety barrier.

Crash                              An event or series of events resulting from a vehicle colliding with a person, object or another vehicle, likely to cause property damage, serious injury or death to vehicle occupants or to persons struck.

Errant Vehicle             A vehicle that leaves the travelled path and runs off the side of the road or onto the median.

Hazard (Roadside)    Any object or feature located between the edge of traffic lane and road reserve boundary, or within a median, that could cause significant personal injury (including fatal injury) to vehicle occupants when impacted by an errant vehicle.

10 Policy Statement

Background

Cabonne Council is responsible for the care and management of 1925km of roads within it’s Local Government Area. These roads are of varying standards and carry traffic volumes from less than 5 vehicles per day to over 2,000. The majority of these roads are rural roads where the default speed limit of 100km/h applies and contains millions of roadside hazards of varying risk ratings. It is not economically possible to treat or remove all of these hazards and therefore a risk evaluation process must be developed and used to determine priorities for these works.

In managing the road network, one of Cabonne’s main objectives is to optimize the safety to road users within the limits of Council’s available resources. A large percentage of motor vehicle accidents on rural roads are single vehicle run off road incidents (in Cabonne 73% of accidents from 2005 to June 2011) with a significant number of these resulting in vehicle rollovers or collision with roadside objects such as trees or poles. 48% injury crashes, 2% fatal, remainder (50%) vehicle towed-away but no casualty. Run-off road crashes, typically involving a single vehicle, account for about 30% of all serious casualties (and a higher proportion of fatalities) in Cabonne.

The risk of collision with these objects is reduced by providing a clear zone distance from the edge of the traffic lane so that in the event of a crash, the consequence of the crash is reduced (i.e. less likely to have a casualty).

The generally accepted clear zone widths are set out in the design standard Austroads Guide to Road Design Part 6 – Roadside Design, Safety and Barriers, Table 4.1. The table indicates that for a 100km.hr road and a fill batter slope of 6:1 to flat and carrying less than 750 vehicles per day (the majority of the Cabonne road network), a clear zone of 5.5m either side of the roadway is required. This increases if the cut or fill batter is steeper up to 7.5m and is greater on curves and corners of the road, depending on the curvature of the road, and greater still for higher traffic volumes.

This width may be practical when designing and constructing in greenfield sites, but retrofitting existing roads to this value is not achievable due to road reserves being only 20m wide and the extent of native vegetation within the road reserve that Council had a legal responsibility to protect.

This policy aims to set a compromise between these design standards and what is achievable with additional resources, based on the relative risk associated with lower traffic volumes.

Road Classifications

Cabonne Council’s road classifications were confirmed in the adoption of the Asset Management Plan for Transport (2010) with the IP+R documents in 2012 and are set out below in Table 1: Road Hierarchy.

Clear Zone Widths

The clear zone is measured from the outside of the travelling lane. The width of the clear zone required is directly related to the slope of the ground and as the majority of Cabonne area is relatively flat and most roads have been constructed in a fill scenario, it has been assumed that the batter slopes within the clear zones will be 4:1 or flatter. Treatments for areas where the batter slope is steeper than 4:1 or the road is constructed in cut would be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The width of the clear zone is also directly related to alignment and for the following calculations it is assumed that the alignment is straight of has curve radii of 900m or more. Treatments for curves of smaller radii are would be considered case-by-case depending on the radius of the curve.

The Clear Zone widths are set out below in Table 3: Clear Zone Widths are adopted for use on roads managed by Cabonne Council.

For the lower classified roads with minimum clear zones of 2m the actual Clear Zone width will often be determined by the need to maintain drainage along the edge of the road formation. Sufficient width will need to be kept clear to allow maintenance of drains.

Hazard Treatments

Types of Hazards

·        Fill Batters >4:1

·        Cut batters > 5:1

·        Trees > 100mm diameter

·        Utility poles

·        Drainage and irrigation structures, including culverts

·        Curves

·        Unsealed shoulders on regional and sub-arterial roads

Hazard Control Hierarchy

The following approaches should be taken with hazards identified in the clear zone (in priority order):

1.         Remove the hazard

2.         Redesign the hazard to make it traversable

3.         Relocate the hazard

4.         Replace the hazard to it breaks or is impact absorbing

5.         Shield the hazard with an appropriate barrier

6.         As a last resort, delineate the hazard.

General Manager's REPORT

 

At its meeting of 7 November 2013, the Centroc General Managers Advisory Committee (GMAC) received a report regarding the redeployment of Centroc staff to support the growing activity in the energy sector.  This will allow for:

 

·        Administration of e21 and a greater understanding of member council electricity usage.

·        Identification of ways to reduce electricity consumption.

·        Administration of the regional electricity contracts.

·        A greater understanding of ways to procure electricity and how as a region it can be done better.

·        Advocacy to pay less for street lighting, including engaging with the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).

·        Support for other activities around distributed energy planning and management.

·        Support for renewable energy programming as identified by the Board.

 

Council Contribution

 

Centroc staff currently has access to electricity data through either the e21 program.  Electricity consumption data is used to inform the regional electricity contract, calculate savings achieved from the regional electricity contract and for use in grant applications.  In order to benefit from grant programming (where over $4m has been awarded to Centroc for regional projects in this space over the past 4 years) and receive advice regarding electricity management in the context of current contracts, Councils for whom Centroc cannot directly access this data will need to ensure that this information is available on request.

 

Electricity Contact Person

 

Due to the growing work in the energy space and the importance of accurate data, GMAC were asked at their 6 February 2014 meeting to identify one staff member at each council to be the contact person for energy related programming such as the electricity contract.

 

Ideally, the contact person would have an overall understanding of council’s electricity sites and consumption as well as a desire to be involved in a regional energy program.

 

These people will be asked to form a committee to steer and monitor the progress of the regional contract and may be involved in developing grant funded and other projects.

 

Typically Centroc operational support teams meet between 2 and 6 times per year depending on the level of activity.

Finance Manager's REPORT

 

Council’s Investments as at 28 February 2014 stand at a total of $38,274,113. This is down by $547,911 from the previous month due to a negative outflow of funds for the month of February.

 

Council’s average interest rate for the month was 3.60%, down slightly from last month, as interest rates offered by the financial institutions are reflecting the August 2013 cut to the official cash rate. The Reserve bank’s official cash rate remained steady at 2.5% for the month of February. However, Council’s average rate is higher than Council’s benchmark rate of the 30 Day Bank Bill Swap Rate of 2.61%.

 

Council’s investments are held with multiple Australian Financial institutions with varying credit ratings according to Council’s Investment Policy. The annexure attached to this report shows a break up of each individual institution that Council invests with and its “Standard and Poors” Credit Rating.

Finance Manager's REPORT

 

Council’s Business Activity Statement for the month of January 2014 was completed and submitted to the Australian Taxation Office on 17 February, 2014.  This was prior to the statutory deadline of 21 February.

 

The January Business Activity Statement resulted in a refund to Council of $27,807. 

 

A comparison between January 2014 and December 2013 shows the major differences as follows:

 

·        Total Income Received decreased by $3,917,108.  This was mainly due to the receipt in December of funding from Roads and Maritime Services totalling $2,450,000, as well as the receipt of $829,000 from the NSW Office of Water for work on the Yeoval Sewer Treatment Plant.

·        GST Free Income decreased by $947,000.  Major amounts included as GST free income in December included library grants of $48,000, $176,000 for Council’s Pension Rebate Claim, and $50,000 from NSW Rural Fire Service for hazard reduction works.  Amounts included in this category also include withdrawals from Council’s at call investments to cover creditors payments.  In December this amounted to $1,000,000.

·        Capital Purchases decreased by $1,024,000.  Totals for January included amounts paid to Smiths Earthmoving for works on the Cumnock Small Town Sewer ($160,000), Ted Wilson & Sons for works at the Molong Water Treatment Plant ($97,000) and Benington Pty Ltd for footpath construction at Manildra ($55,000).

·        GST Free Purchases decreased by $42,000.

·        Non – Capital purchases decreased by $1,712,000.  Amounts included in this category for December included $975,000 Weeds Action Program funding distributed to other Councils.  This amount had been received as a grant in November 2013.

The February Business Activity Statement resulted in a refund to Council of $130,363.00.

·        Total Income Received increased by $217,000 compared to January 2014.   Council received a Financial Assistance Grant instalment of $553,952 during February.  This was offset by a decrease of $250,000 in funding from Roads and Maritime Services in February 2014.

The Office of Local Government is an executive agency related to the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC), and as such remains part of the DPC Cluster, but not as a Division within the Department.  This change has been made as a result of the new Government Sector Employment Act 2013, which also commenced on Monday 24 February 2014.

 

There will be no change in terms of the OLG role with the local government sector. 

 

The OLG contact details and postal address will remain the same and, at this stage, there will be no change to their email address / domain name.  They will migrate over to a new domain name in the coming months; however they will maintain the existing dlg domain name for a period of time to facilitate this transition.

Director of Environmental Services' REPORT

 

The council at its meeting of 19 March 2012 resolved to investigate the feasibility of introducing a waste services voucher system with a view to trialling the concept in the following financial year. The initiative aimed at providing services to rural landholders remote from council’s landfill sites. The voucher system was based on the surmise of equating the service cost to match the standard waste fee attributed to ratepayers.

 

Discussions were instigated with staff from adjoining council areas. Implementation of such a system would require support from councils including Blayney, Wellington, Bathurst and Orange initially. Continuity in facilitating the discussions, procedural matters relating to project administration and associated legal implications have all contributed to the project not progressing to date.

 

It is noted however that as quoted in a recent Netwaste grant application, of the approximate 4,500 households within Cabonne some 3,000 household have existing access to contract services. Such level of service across a significant land area is considered a positive achievement for the council and the community.

 

It is also noted that Cabonne responded to an opportunity that arose to participate in discussions with Blayney Council, Cadia Valley Operations and landowners to examine a CVO proposal to provide a regular collection service to the landholders surrounding the mine. Again discussions have needed to take shape and evolve to address economics and feasibility issues. The project is still evolving.

 

Council as part of Netwaste are currently negotiating contract arrangements for provision of standard waste services – the current contract held by JR Richards. An option has been taken to investigate extending weekly and fortnightly services to the rural residential areas located within Cabonne. A survey of land owners has been carried out as part of the strategy. The response to date has not been in support of the extension of a user pay service.

 

It is apparent that a number of rural landowners currently have private contract arrangements with service providers to collect domestic waste and that the services are satisfactory for the needs of the users. The private operators have also indicated that introduction of additional council imposed services would adversely affect their business operations.

 

It is suggested that council continue to explore emerging opportunities to provide cost effective, sustainable waste collection services to the shire.

Director of Environmental Services' REPORT

 

The following information has been received from Orange City Council’s Regional Museum Advisor, Kylie Winkworth and Museum and Heritage Coordinator, Alison Russell.

 

Introduction

The purpose of this report is to update Cabonne Council on work undertaken through the Sustainable Collections Project (2007/2013) and request Council’s support for renewed funding for the program in 2014/2015.

 

Background

The Sustainable Collections Project (SCP) is a joint initiative of Cabonne, Blayney and Orange Councils, with funding support from Arts NSW and other partners. The project was initiated in 2007 by Orange City Council’s museum program, working with community museums in the region.  It is designed to assist community museums and volunteers with the documentation, assessment and interpretation of collections and to improve coordination and planning for the future of the museums and their significant collections.

 

The project recognises that the museums hold collections which are important community, cultural and financial assets. These collections need maintenance, planning and investment to sustain their value and significance. Improved collection management and interpretation enables communities to access the cultural, tourism and education potential inherent in the collections and the stories held by the museums. Underpinning the project is the employment of locally based collections officers to work with museum volunteers to identify significant objects and distinctive stories in each museum and document collections. The project is managed by Orange City Council’s Museum and Heritage Coordinator, while their Museum Adviser provides strategic and policy advice. 

 

The Sustainable Collections Project has pioneered a new model of regional cooperation for sustainable museum development. It was the first time in Australia that three councils had supported a co-ordinated museum program. Since its inception, the project has been recognised as a national model, it has been commended in various studies and museum reports, and it has attracted significant grant funding and national awards.

Future Reporting

Orange City Council’s Museum and Heritage Coordinator has spoken to Cabonne Director Development Services who has stated that the reporting process needs to more regular.  It has been suggested that the Director Development Services may be more involved in the process and assist with the reporting processes.

 

There may also further opportunities as part of the Sustainable Collections Project and the Villages of the Heart Project that a consultant be engaged to assist with the museum collection documentation and interpretation and to assist in the reporting process for the period 2014-2016. 

 

Recommendation             

1.   That consideration be given to allocating $15,000 within Council’s 2014/2015 budget and in 2015/2016 to continue the Sustainable Collections Project and undertake the ‘Villages of the Heart’ partnership project with Sydney’s Living Museums.

05 Jul 2013 - 12:37 PM - Jonathon Foong

The Cabonne Water Reference Group will be meeting in August to discuss the TBL of the water supply scheme which will have implications on the feasibility of providing potable water for Cumnock and Yeoval.
The NSW Ministry of Health has replied to Cabonnes submission in regards to providing treated water for Cumnock and Yeoval which they are not in favour off due to the increase risk of residents using it for potable water purposes. Council is now working closely with a number of industry experts to provide a cost effective solution to the problem

22 Apr 2013 - 11:02 AM - Jonathon Foong

Andrew and I attended a meeting with Yeoval Progress Association. The Potable water option for Yeoval and Cumnock is cost prohibitive without considerable external funding. The feedback we have recieved from the community indicate that they would like to see an improvement in water quality, which need not be regarded as potable. We are looking at various options, liasing with NSW Health to provide cost estimates for the project,

02 Apr 2013 - 10:49 AM - Jonathon Foong
