Ap­ply to have say on G-MW

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Goul­burn-Mur­ray Wa­ter has ex­tended the dead­line for ex­pres­sions of interest from its cus­tomers, com­mu­ni­ties and stake­hold­ers to help progress key projects from its strate­gic plan de­vel­op­ment.

G-MW’s role is to ef­fi­ciently man­age, store and de­liver wa­ter to more than 21 000 ac­tive cus­tomers in­volved in a di­verse range of en­ter­prises and in­ter­ests across north­ern Vic­to­ria.

‘‘We are in a chal­leng­ing and chang­ing en­vi­ron­ment that is set to con­tinue in com­ing years, with chang­ing cli­mate and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets im­pact­ing on our cus­tomers and G-MW,’’ manag­ing di­rec­tor Pat Len­non said.

Mr Len­non said G-MW had de­vel­oped and was now im­ple­ment­ing its strate­gic plan in re­sponse to these chal­lenges, to en­sure G-MW re­mained sus­tain­able now and into the fore­see­able fu­ture.

This in­cludes en­sur­ing wa­ter is de­liv­ered to cus­tomers at an af­ford­able price and that de­liv­er­ies are meet­ing ex­pected ser­vice stan­dards.

To fur­ther that work, G-MW is calling for ex­pres­sions of interest to sev­eral im­por­tant projects: the de­vel­op­ment of a 25-year Goul­burn Mur­ray Ir­ri­ga­tion District As­set Strat­egy and the de­vel­op­ment of a Tar­iff and Pric­ing Re­view.

The orig­i­nal dead­line for ex­pres­sions of interest of Fri­day, Novem­ber 3 has been ex­tended by two weeks.

In­ter­ested cus­tomers, stake­hold­ers and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity now have un­til Fri­day, Novem­ber 17 to nom­i­nate for these im­por­tant projects.

Ap­pli­cants are re­quired to fill out an ex­pres­sion of interest ap­pli­ca­tion form ad­dress­ing se­lec­tion cri­te­ria which in­cludes: a sound un­der­stand­ing of the needs of cus­tomers within G-MW’s area of op­er­a­tions; an abil­ity to rep­re­sent a range of views to the work­ing group; a demon­strated un­der­stand­ing of G-MW’s op­er­a­tions; an un­der­stand­ing and abil­ity to ob­jec­tively dis­cuss the re­la­tion­ship be­tween cus­tomer ser­vice lev­els and as­set in­fra­struc­ture costs; and interest in en­cour­ag­ing in­vest­ment in the G-MW re­gion.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms, and the terms of ref­er­ence for the work­ing groups, can be found at the ‘join a work­ing group’ link on the G-MW web­site at: www.gmwa­ter.com.au or by phon­ing 1800 013 357.
