Big pic­ture learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for Zahl

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

What are you most proud of achiev­ing over the past year?

The abil­ity of the coun­cil to set a clear num­ber of pri­or­i­ties for at­ten­tion in the first year of the new term, and have the sup­port of staff in see­ing the de­sires of the new coun­cil car­ried out as much as pos­si­ble.

How do you feel the past 12 months have gone?

Apart from very quickly, I’m gen­er­ally sat­is­fied with progress to achieve the goals set at the be­gin­ning of term.

What were your big­gest chal­lenges faced dur­ing your first year in coun­cil? Both pro­fes­sion­ally and per­son­ally?

The past year has been a very steep learn­ing curve in re­la­tion to the mat­ters over which the coun­cil has con­trol, and prob­a­bly hap­pi­est with the progress of road works. I ac­knowl­edge that there is much we as a coun­cil still wish to achieve. What are your pri­or­i­ties for the next three years?

A con­tin­u­a­tion of im­prove­ments to the road net­work, town im­prove­ments, and com­mu­nity well-be­ing, all within fi­nan­cial ca­pa­bil­i­ties. What have been the big­gest sur­prises of the past 12 months?

No real big sur­prises, apart from sim­ply say­ing that the list of is­sues the coun­cil seems to be re­spon­si­ble for does not end.

Coun­cil­lor John Zahl.
