Sec­tion 355 com­mit­tees/pub­lic art on dis­play

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

Draft coun­cil policies for Sec­tion 355 com­mit­tees and pub­lic art strategy are on pub­lic dis­play for 28 days, un­til July 20 and sub­mis­sions are in­vited from the pub­lic.

Sec­tion 355 com­mit­tees are specif­i­cally del­e­gated some of Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s func­tions to man­age fa­cil­i­ties or func­tions and have been re­viewed fol­low­ing the merger of Urana and Corowa Shires.

The com­mit­tees are ef­fec­tively a vol­un­teer ex­ten­sion of coun­cil.

Com­mit­tee mem­bers are re­quired to ad­here to coun­cil’s code of con­duct, meet­ing practice and other cor­po­rate gov­er­nance policies. Each com­mit­tee will have its own Terms of Ref­er­ence.

Mem­ber­ship may in­clude coun­cil­lors, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of gov­ern­ment de­part­ments, com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, sport­ing bodies and the gen­eral pub­lic.

Coun­cil’s pub­lic art strategy pro­vides a frame­work for ef­fec­tive man­age­ment of pub­lic art and de­liv­ery of best outcomes for the com­mu­nity from aes­thetic, func­tional and eco­nomic per­spec­tives.

“Good pub­lic art, de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture can cre­ate a unique com­mu­nity iden­tity that in­forms the sense of peace and cre­ates iconic brand­ing of the coun­cil area,” coun­cil’s direc­tor cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity ser­vices Kristy Kay said.
