Shire initiatives ticking along
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.
