Full Council meeting: Feb 25th 2019

Image result for centennial park cemeteryThe following may be of interest:

  • Selection of committee members to represent Unley on the Board at Centennial Park: After much controversy Jane Russo and Michael Rabbitt were selected (see next blog)
  • Nominations for the Local Government Ministerial Advisory  Committee: the Council decided to nominate both Jordan Dodd and Don Palmer. The Minister will decide if either or both are suitable
  • Unley Oval Redevelopment; Stage 2: There are still $3 million  worth of works planned for the Unley Oval grandstands.   Council wishes to sign a letter of intent with the Life Changer Foundation to use the building as it's SA head quarters. The organisation provided mentoring and workshops to build confidence and resilience in youth. Hopefully, this will release the funds from grants, get the development done and provide a unique and valuable program for our young people.
  • Consideration of a Limited Rate rise for 2019-20: Cr Hughes asked that the limit be within 1% of CPI. While this is laudable I did not support it as I feel that the new Council may have things they want funded now and so I don't wish to see borrowings rise too quickly as we borrow money for items that, in my opinion, should be paid from recurrent funding.
