Shire ini­tia­tives tick­ing along

The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

ONE ini­tia­tive un­der Cam­paspe Shire’s Coun­cil Plan has been com­pleted in year two of the four year plan.

Coun­cil was pre­sented with the first quar­terly up­date out­lin­ing progress in the 2017/21 Coun­cil Plan at the No­vem­ber or­di­nary meet­ing. The plan iden­ti­fies 28 ini­tia­tives to be com­pleted for the 2018/19 year — one is com­plete, 25 are un­der­way and three have not started.

Deputy mayor Vicki Neele said the up­date was en­cour­ag­ing to see.

‘‘We’re on track to meet our goals of the coun­cil plan across a wide range of ar­eas,’’ she said at the meet­ing.

The plan guides the plan­ning, de­ci­sion-mak­ing and ac­tions of coun­cil over a four-year term. It pro­vides the over­ar­ch­ing frame­work for the de­vel­op­ment and de­liv­ery of all other coun­cil plans, strate­gies, poli­cies and ser­vices.

Some of the ini­tia­tives un­der­way in­clude: ■ Plan­ning for in­tro­duc­tion of food or­gan­ics into the gar­den or­gan­ics bin, within waste ser­vices; ■ Com­plet­ing the Rush­worth streetscape re­newal project; ■ Work­ing with Mount Camel wine grow­ers to de­velop a Grow­ers Net­work; and ■ Re­view­ing the Cam­paspe Shire events strat­egy.
