Coun­cils’ joint ef­fort

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

PEP­PER­MINT Grove Coun­cil in­tends to join a $108,000, three-year pro­ject to share IT ser­vices with neigh­bour­ing Cottes­loe Coun­cil.

It is part of an ini­tial re­gional re­source shar­ing ef­fort af­ter a failed merger.

“What we’re say­ing is we want to in­vest in some­one else’s net­work and in­vest in the new tech­nol­ogy that’s com­ing online,” Pep­per­mint Grove cor­po­rate ser­vices man­ager Paul Rawl­ings said.

Mr Rawl­ings said per­sonal pay­ment ser­vices pre­ferred by its ratepay­ers would be re­tained, while the sys­tem on which the coun­cil cur­rently spends $50,000 an­nu­ally would be mod­ernised.
