Council’s four year service delivery plan

Snowy River Shire councillors and staff have completed their review of the Integrated Planning & Reporting (IPR) documents, that outline the delivery of services for the next four years.

The Draft Delivery Program 2014 – 2017 and Operational Plan 2014 that includes the 2014 Budget, are just two of the IPR documents, with the full suite being endorsed for public exhibition at last the April Council meeting.

The endorsement followed several months of workshops with councillors and senior staff members to determine the direction of these plans, setting of priorities and goals for delivering services to the community for the term of the council.

“Like all businesses, council needs to determine priorities and goals within a set budget. Extensive state government funding cuts and the increasing limitations for local governments agencies to secure grant funding means that now more than ever council need to prioritise its level of service to the community”, explained the general manager Joseph Vescio.

“This has meant that councillors have directed for their four year term of council, that our number one priority be our transport infrastructure, i.e. roads – the repair of our extensive road network. This prioritising of services, has meant that some projects have been placed upon the back-burner, to be revisited at a later stage.

“Just like your household budget – you can’t do all of your desired projects in the one year, it must be planned out and achieved over time.”

The IPR suite of documents will be on public exhibition until May 22, and can be viewed in hard copy at council offices Razorback Office, SPAR Supermarket, Adaminaby and Iona Gardens, Dalgety, or online at Council’s website:
