MidCoast Council’s commitment on the services and activities the community can expect to be delivered during the 2019-20 year and proposed fees and charges is now on public exhibition.

The 2019-20 Operational Plan, presented alongside the three year delivery program and 2019-20 fees and charges is open for community feedback until 4.30pm Wednesday 19 June.

The document also includes the budget for the coming year and outlines how and where funds will be spent.

“We invite members of the public to provide feedback on these documents, which will then go back to Councillors for adoption,” General Manager Adrian Panuccio explained.

“Once adopted these documents become an important delivery checklist across all areas of Council.

“The plans provide an overview of where we are headed, a detailed outline of deliverables and the performance criteria against which we will measure our progress.”

Mr Panuccio said an important focus for the coming year will be on a range of transformational projects that will take MidCoast Council into the next phase of integration and providing services for our community.

“Many of these projects focus on improving the internal business processes of Council, and this work is critical to ensure that direct services to the community are delivered efficiently and effectively.”

During the coming year Council will also be working across all facets of Council  business to deliver: improvements to significant recreational facilities, the Civic Precinct project providing a new innovative library space and customer service point for the Forster community, development of a Cultural Plan, and the  implementation of support strategies for our youth and ageing sectors.

“Work will continue on the development of a MidCoast wide local environmental plan and development control plan to allow for a common approach to development applications and we will begin design work on improvements to both water and sewer services for the Gloucester region.”
