ADVANCE AUSTRALIA FAIR

 

 

 

Australians all let us rejoice,

For we are young and free;

We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;

Our home is girt by sea;

Our land abounds in nature’s gifts

Of beauty rich and rare;

In history’s page, let every stage

Advance Australia Fair.

 

In joyful strains then let us sing,

Advance Australia Fair.

 

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross

We’ll toil with hearts and hands;

To make this Commonwealth of ours

Renowned of all the lands;

For those who’ve come across the seas

We’ve boundless plains to share;

With courage let us all combine

To Advance Australia Fair.

 

In joyful strains then let us sing,

Advance Australia Fair.

 



Statement of Recognition of

Penrith City’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Heritage

 

 

Council values the unique status of Aboriginal people as the original owners and custodians of lands and waters, including the land and waters of Penrith City.

 

Council values the unique status of Torres Strait Islander people as the original owners and custodians of the Torres Strait Islands and surrounding waters.

 

We work together for a united Australia and City that respects this land of ours, that values the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage, and provides justice and equity for all.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

PRAYER

 

 

 

“Sovereign God, tonight as we gather together as a Council we affirm that you are the giver and sustainer of life.  We come together as representatives of our community to make decisions that will benefit this city and the people within it. 

 

We come not in a spirit of competition, not as adversaries, but as colleagues.  Help us to treat each other with respect, with dignity, with interest and with honesty.  Help us not just to hear the words we say, but also to hear each others hearts.  We seek to be wise in all that we say and do.

 

As we meet, our concern is for this city.  Grant us wisdom, courage and strength.

 

Lord, help us.  We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.”

PENRITH CITY COUNCIL

 

Procedure for Addressing Meetings

 

Anyone can request permission to address a meeting, providing that the number of speakers is limited to three in support of any proposal and three against.

 

Any request about an issue or matter on the Agenda for the meeting can be lodged with the General Manager or Public Officer up until 12 noon on the day of the meeting.

 

Prior to the meeting the person who has requested permission to address the meeting will need to provide the Public Officer with a written statement of the points to be covered during the address in sufficient detail so as to inform the Councillors of the substance of the address and a written copy of any questions to be asked of the Council in order that responses to those questions can be provided in due course.

 

In addition, prior to addressing the meeting a person addressing Council or Committee will be informed that they do not enjoy any privilege and that permission to speak may be withdrawn should they make inappropriate comments.

 

It should be noted that persons who wish to address the Council are addressing a formal part of the Council Meeting. All persons addressing the Meeting should give consideration to their dress attire. Smart casual is a minimum that is thought to be appropriate when addressing such a forum.

 

It should be noted that speakers at meetings of the Council or Committee do not have absolute privilege (parliamentary privilege).  A speaker who makes any potentially offensive or defamatory remarks about any other person may render themselves open to legal action.

 

Prior to addressing the meeting the person will be required to sign the following statement:

 

“I (name) understand that the meeting I intend to address on (date) is a public meeting.  I also understand that should I say or present any material that is inappropriate, I may be subject to legal action.  I also acknowledge that I have been informed to obtain my own legal advice about the appropriateness of the material that I intend to present at the above mentioned meeting”.

 

Should a person fail to sign the above statement then permission to address either the Council or Committee will not be granted.

 

The Public Officer or Minute Clerk will speak to those people who have requested permission to address the meeting, prior to the meeting at 7.15pm.

 

It is up to the Council or Committee to decide if the request to address the meeting will be granted.

 

Where permission is to be granted the Council or Committee, at the appropriate time, will suspend only so much of the Standing Orders to allow the address to occur.

 

The Chairperson will then call the person up to the lectern or speaking area.

 

The person addressing the meeting needs to clearly indicate:

 

·  Their name;

 

·  Organisation or group they are representing (if applicable);

 

·  Details of the issue to be addressed and the item number of the report in the Business Paper;

 

·  Whether they are opposing or supporting the issue or matter (if applicable) and the action they would like the meeting to take;

 

·      The interest of the speaker (e.g. affected person, neighbour, applicant,       applicants spokesperson, interested citizen etc).

 

Each person then has five minutes to make their address.  Those addressing Council will be required to speak to the written statement they have submitted.  Permission to address Council is not to be taken as an opportunity to refute or otherwise the points made by previous speakers on the same issue. 

 

The Council or Committee can extend this time if they consider if appropriate, however, everyone needs to work on the basis that the address will be for five minutes only.

 

Councillors may have questions about the address so people are asked to remain at the lectern or in the speaking area until the Chairperson has thanked them.

 

When this occurs, they should then return to their seat.

Mayoral Minute

Retrospective 

Strategy: Provide opportunities for our community to participate in making decisions about the City's future

           

 

To say that it’s been a real privilege to be Mayor of Penrith City for the past 12 months seems inadequate. I’ve enjoyed working alongside the community, my fellow Councillors and fabulous staff to realise our vision for a sustainable, financially stable and culturally vibrant Penrith.

I’ve been particularly fortunate to hold the position of Mayor in the final year of the current Council term. It’s been fantastic to see so many of the initiatives mapped out in our four-year Delivery Program 2013-17 mature and come to fruition.

As a Council, we can look back over the past four years with great pride. We’ve upgraded and enhanced local infrastructure. We’ve streamlined our organisation and worked more collaboratively with our community than ever before.

Together, over the past four years, we capitalised on our dynamic council and community brand – Penrith is Here. We established our Penrith New West economic initiatives brand. This followed the release of Penrith Progression: A Plan for Action – a blueprint for the City Centre. That has already had so many successes. We’ve also promoted Penrith as The Adventure Capital of NSW and continue to attract a wide range of major events to our city.

It’s been exciting to watch our city grow sustainably and to be part of each of these campaigns as both a Councillor and Mayor.

It was also gratifying to have Penrith City deemed Fit for the Future – one of only seven metropolitan councils, and the only Western Sydney Regional City, to be in such a strong position.

To cement our standing, we formalised the proposed Strategic Alliance with Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains councils, a relationship strengthened by our official designation as the West District by the Greater Sydney Commission.

Our financial stability was further boosted in May when IPART granted a Special Rate Variation. This gives us the mandate and mechanism to take the next steps forward for our city. It will realise $46 million over four years to maintain, renew and create new assets, pay down debt, boost Council's service levels and help deliver projects such as the Our River Masterplan. It will also enable us to begin planning for a multi deck CBD car park and a state-of-the-art City Park.

The City Park is part of the vision outlined by Penrith Progression. As I mentioned, this vision is being delivered through Penrith New West. It includes growing our economy and creating more local jobs.

Local jobs received a boost with the announcement in June that the Fire and Rescue NSW Academy would relocate to Erskine Park. The new state-of-the-art training facility will employ around 150 staff, and see up to 200 additional firefighters and trainees on site on any given day.

Over the past 12 months we’ve continued to call for more government agencies to relocate to Penrith. We’ve made strong representations to State and Federal Ministers about the opportunities in the City, following up on the 2014 promise by then Premier that 300 State Government jobs would relocate to Penrith.

We’ve made great strides in advocating for improved services and infrastructure in the past 12 months. In particular:

·    a State Government commitment of $22.5 million to kick start the pedestrian bridge across the Nepean River

·    State and Federal Government’s commitment of $100 million to widen Mulgoa Road to six lanes between Glenmore Parkway and Blaikie Road

·    the State Government’s $407 million commitment to improve rail services, including more frequent trains on the Western Line

·    a critical North-South rail line connecting outer Western Sydney and the airport with the Western Line

·    the Federal Government’s commitment of more than $2 million in funding for recreational upgrades, and

·    $380,000 in arts funding to allow Penrith to showcase major travelling exhibitions.

 

Exhibitions like this will complement the wide range of major events our city has attracted over the past 12 months – including the upcoming Australian Ballet’s outdoor community program, Ballet Under the Stars, at the Sydney International Regatta Centre.

This is due in part to our campaign to position Penrith as The Adventure Capital of NSW. This successful campaign followed on from the Destination Management Plan we commissioned and launched late last year. With this blueprint in place we’ve built a new tourism website, are working with local tourism operators on cooperative marketing and have completed an accommodation feasibility study.

And when visitors come to Penrith, they’re seeing a city that’s never looked better, with new parks, playgrounds and fitness equipment for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy, and new facilities for them to use. Over the past 12 months we’ve reconstructed fields and upgraded lighting in many of our parks to improve them, making them safer and extending the hours of use.

We’ve also worked through the issues with the Queen Street, Streetscape Improvement Plan to update the entire length of Queen Street, from the Railway Station through to the Great Western Highway.

The Neighbourhood Renewal Program has, once again, allowed us to bring new life to well-established parts of our city. This includes the ongoing North St Marys Matters project and the Magnetic Places project, ‘Our Place, Our Space’ in Cranebrook, which has made creative use of Cranebrook's public spaces.

There has been a continuing trend of community collaboration in the past 12 months – including the Penrith Mayoral Challenge.

I was thrilled to launch the upgraded playground at Barr and Bass Street Reserve in April. We worked with an inspirational group of primary and secondary school students from Colyton to transform this public space. We’re now working with students from Kingswood Primary to redesign the playground at Chapman Gardens.

The Team Colyton initiative has similarly led to great results and is already bringing about positive change for this community.

We launched the Youth Mayor program in June to engage with secondary school students interested in leadership and eager to help us create positive change.

The Penrith Community Panel also delivered its recommendations to Council. The initiative has proved to be a great success and another wonderful way to tap into the hearts and minds of our residents. I’ve taken on the panel’s recommendation to get out and inform our residents about the range of services that council delivers.

It’s been a privilege to attend many community events as Mayor over the past year. I’ve enjoyed the chance to meet with, and listen to, local people, as well as visitors from all over the world.

I’m happy to note that many of these events have celebrated our diversity. I had the great pleasure of speaking at a Harmony Day event at Western Sydney University earlier this year. In June, Council hosted an inspiring Refugee Week event and we’ve held two multi-faith afternoon gatherings, with more planned. We held our annual Philippine Independence Day flag raising event and I met many wonderful people at the well-attended NAIDOC Family Gathering in Jamison Park.

As Penrith grows, so too does our diversity, making our city a richer and more vibrant place because of that diversity. This is evidenced by the thousands of new citizens that have chosen to make the Penrith area their home over this last term we have welcomed them all especially those from refugee backgrounds.

I’d like to personally thank the Deputy Mayor, my fellow Councillors and Council staff for their support. I’d also like to say that I’m thrilled to have been granted the opportunity to serve the community of Penrith as Mayor for the past year. I have enjoyed every minute of it even the challenging ones.

Finally, I would like to fondly farewell three Councillors, Councillor Jackie Greenow OAM, Councillor Prue Car and Councillor Ben Goldfinch who are not running as local government candidates in the upcoming election.

 

Councillor Car, who also served on the Access Committee, St Marys Development Committee and Children’s Cooperative, has to vacate her position as she is now the State Member for Londonderry.

 

Councillor Goldfinch, who also served on the Ripples Board and chaired the Heritage Advisory Committee, is leaving to spend more time and give more focus to his young family.

 

I thank them for their hard work and dedication to the Penrith Community.

Councillor Karen McKeown

Mayor

Mayoral Minute

Acknowledgement of Councillor Jackie Greenow OAM's service on Council

Strategy: Provide opportunities for our community to participate in making decisions about the City's future

           

 

Our Councillor colleague, Councillor Jackie Greenow has decided to retire from public life after a long and distinguished career. We wish her our best wishes as she returns to private life with more time for her passions for travelling, gardening and reading and with her family. I’d like to thank her family for supporting her in her public life even though it meant less time for them.

In October 2015 Councillor Jackie Greenow OAM became Penrith’s longest serving female Councillor. Councillor Greenow has now served the City of Penrith for 21 years and has always been a strong advocate for women in local government and also a fierce voice and passionate advocate for St Marys.

This was recently recognised by the Roads and Maritime Service agreeing for the first time in NSW to changing the walk symbol at two pedestrian crossings in Penrith and St Marys from the green man lantern into a green lady. It was a wonderful way to honour Councillor Greenow’s contribution to our City.

Councillor Greenow was first elected to Council in 1995. She served five terms as Deputy Mayor, and was Mayor in 2004-05.

Councillor Greenow’s contribution to our City over the past two decades has been vast and varied. She is the Chairperson of the Penrith International Friendship Committee and represents Council on the Access Committee and the Heritage Advisory Committee. She has also been involved with a variety of other boards and committees including Hawkesbury River County Council, Flood Mitigation Authority, Penrith Performing and Visual Arts, Local Government Advisory board, the Community Relations Commission and has been appointed a Life Member of the Australian Local Government Women's Association for her dedication and commitment to women working for and elected to Council.

Councillor Greenow was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 2013 for “service to local government, and to the community, particularly to people with disabilities”.

I’d like to thank Councillor Greenow for her many years as a passionate advocate for our community and her significant contribution to this Council.

Councillor Karen McKeown

Mayor  

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That the Mayoral Minute on Acknowledgement of Cr Jackie Greenow OAM's service on Council be received.

DELIVERY PROGRAM REPORTS

 

Outcome 2 - We plan for our future growth

 

1        Development Application DA16/0739 Alterations and Additions to the Overlander Hotel Lot 1 DP 581663 (No. 180) Richmond Road, Cambridge Gardens Owner: Grant Briscoe Applicant: Simone Wells Architect                                                        

Gavin Cherry spoke to the report and described the proposed development works to the Overlander Hotel at Cambridge Gardens.

 

The proposal for alterations and additions to the Overlander Hotel includes extending the carpark area, including four accessible parking spaces, kitchen works, an accessible toilet, additions to the entries and entry foyers and refurbishment of gaming rooms and dining and lounge areas.

 

The application proposes accessibility considerations including internal circulation spaces, a new pedestrian entry path and ramp, four accessible parking spaces, a new unisex accessible toilet, signage in raised print and braille, accessible heights to counters and tables.

 

The Committee discussed the following issues:

 

·    Wayfinding signage to all toilets

·    Verifying the path of travel separation between the accessible toilet and existing toilets

·    The width of doorways

·    The grading of parking spaces

·    Concern regarding the location of the accessible toilet

·    Consideration of provision of an accessible grassed area for assistance animals.

 

RECOMMENDED

That:

 

1.     The information contained in the report on Development Application DA16/0739 Alterations and Additions to the Overlander Hotel Lot 1 DP 581663 (No. 180) Richmond Road, Cambridge Gardens Owner: Grant Briscoe Applicant: Simone Wells Architect be received.

2.     That matters referred to in Section 4.2 of the Access Report prepared by Accessibility Solutions (NSW) Pty Ltd dated 18 July 2016 be included as a recommended condition of consent, to be satisfied prior to the issue of a Construction Certificate.

 

Outcome 3 - We can get around the City

 

2        Nepean Avenue, Penrith - Proposed Active Transport Infrastructure                        

Adam Wilkinson spoke to the report and his presentation regarding the proposed active transport infrastructure for Nepean Avenue in Penrith. 

 

Adam Wilkinson advised Council had invested significantly to provide accessible paths throughout Penrith City including in Glenmore Park, Jamison Park, along the river at Emu Plains and the path connection between Penrith and St Marys.

 

Gavin Cherry left the meeting at 5.35pm.

 

Adam Wilkinson advised that the proposed plan is to create a circuit or network of paths across the city. Nepean Avenue forms the missing link of the bridge-to-bridge loop which includes the Nepean River Green Bridge, the Great River Walk and Tench Avenue.

 

Discussion was held regarding the number of pedestrians using the roadway on the weekend and on a week day with figures expected to grow significantly.

 

Four options for the provision of accessible pedestrian and cycle infrastructure have been proposed for Nepean Avenue. Adam Wilkinson advised it is proposed to retain as many of the 123 trees on Nepean Avenue as possible. Adam Wilkinson spoke to the outcomes of the recent community forum held with residents from Nepean Avenue. As a result, Council would also be undertaking investigations of a fifth option, being an alignment along Peachtree Creek, to the rear of Ladbury Avenue.

 

Members of the Committee discussed the five proposed options including narrowing of the road, damage to trees, loss of amenity and increased noise.

 

Councillor Cornish referred to the recent meeting held with (circa) 50 residents and their concerns with the proposed options. Another location was suggested for the path instead of Nepean Avenue so it did not go through a residential area – Option 5.

 

Councillor Marcus Cornish left the meeting at 5.50pm.

 

Adam Wilkinson advised that Option 5 is part of a long-term strategy. The current dominant access route is Nepean Avenue which is where people want to walk.

 

The Committee discussed the five proposed options and came to consensus that Option 2 (shared path along the western side of Nepean Avenue) was the preferred option due to surveillance and a number of access issues.

 

RECOMMENDED

That:

 

1.   The information contained in the report on Nepean Avenue, Penrith - Proposed Active Transport Infrastructure be received.

2.   The Access Committee is in favour of Option 2 for a range of access and surveillance reasons.

 

Adam Wilkinson left the meeting at 5.58pm.

 

Outcome 6 - We're healthy and share strong community spirit

 

3        Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-21 - Consultation Progress Report       

 

Claire Galvin spoke to the report and advised of the outcomes of the community consultations undertaken as part of the Disability Inclusion Action Planning process.

 

A progress report regarding the Community Consultations was emailed to Access Committee members prior to tonight’s meeting. 

 

This report outlines preliminary information from the community forums and focus groups when Council officers met with people with disabilities from different age groups and support needs. 

 

Some of the issues raised by the focus groups and community forums were:

 

·    Accessible parking

·    Need for accessible adult change facilities

·    Transport

·    Accessible playgrounds with fences around them

·    Continuous paths of travel

·    A sensory garden – liveable communities

·    Employment

·    Easier access to information

·    Easier access to the MLAK system.

 

Councillor Cornish returned to the meeting at 6.02pm.

 

Claire Galvin advised that the next steps are to meet with Kurrambee School and Children’s Services to further engage and obtain the views of children and young people.  Internal workshops with Council staff will also be held.

 

David Currie highlighted that there is still no lower counter area in the foyer of the Council Civic Centre.

 

Discussion was held regarding community attitudes to inclusion and inclusion also being two way.  It is also important for people with disabilities to be positive.

 

Other issues discussed by the Committee included:

 

·    People with an intellectual disability subjected to disparaging remarks

·    People not feeling safe at night

·    Access to pram ramps with mobility scooters and large wheeled prams

·    Positive commentary from people regarding Council’s leadership with accessibility.

 

RECOMMENDED

That the information contained in the report on the Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-21 - Consultation Progress Report be received.

 

4        Disability Access Improvement Program                                                                       

Joe Ibbitson spoke to the report and provided details of the outcomes which were achieved in the 2015-16 Disability Access Improvement Program.  These included work at St Clair Recreation Centre, a continuous path of travel in Miller Street Colyton, a contribution to the 2016 Nepean Disability Expo, the No Boundaries Art Group, seating near the Bennett wagons in St Marys and accessible signage.

 

Joe Ibbitson detailed the proposed Disability Access Improvement Program projects for 2016-17.  The list includes accessible facilities at Penrith Regional Gallery, Cranebrook Community Centre, support for the Jordan Springs All Abilities Playground launch, updating and rebranding of the Welcoming Customers with Disability booklet, audit of Council’s access maps, accessible events at the River Festival in November.

 

Issues discussed by the Committee included:

 

·    Accessible parking at Cranebrook Community Centre

·    Provision of shuttle buses for the River Festival.

 

Erich Weller advised that Council officers would check the accessible parking at Cranebrook Community Centre.

 

Joe Ibbitson advised that the tentative date for the opening day of the Jordan Springs All Abilities Playground is Sunday 16 October.  Everyone who has been a member of the Access Committee in the past four years will be sent an invitation to the opening.

 

RECOMMENDED

That:

 

1.         The information contained in the report on the Disability Access Improvement Program be received.

2.         The Access Committee supports the proposed projects to receive funding support from the Disability Access Improvement Program in 2016/17.

3.         Council be thanked for the increase in Disability Access Improvement Program funding which commenced in 2013-14.

4.         Council be requested to consider a further increase in the Disability Access Improvement Program funding allocation plus an annual increase to maintain the spending capacity.

 


 

GENERAL BUSINESS

 

GB 1           Expression of Interest Process  

Joe Ibbitson advised that expressions of interest for community membership of the Access Committee are now open.  Current community members may apply by sending a letter as an expression of interest as their previous application and details are already on file.

 

GB 2           Thank you to Councillor Jackie Greenow OAM   

Access Committee members and Council officers unanimously applauded Councillor Greenow’s leadership, guidance and support of the Committee over many years.  Councillor Greenow was commended for her passion for access, caring for the broader community as well as Committee members.  All Access Committee members thanked Councillor Greenow for her many years of leadership on the Committee and agreed she was a highly respected advocate for people with disabilities.

 

Michael Morris, who is also retiring from the Access Committee, thanked Councillor Greenow for her leadership and thanked Councillor officers and community members for their support.  The Committee thanked Michael Morris for his contribution and passion for access.

 

Councillor Greenow spoke about the history of the Access Committee, which she joined in 1995.  In April 2000 the Access Committee became a Committee of Council and all agreed that many positive changes have occurred during this time.

 

RECOMMENDED

That Councillor Jackie Greenow OAM be thanked for her long dedicated service and contribution to the Access Committee.

Executive Summary

The draft 2015-16 Financial Statements have been completed and will be presented at this meeting. The Financial Statements are prepared by Council staff, using the accrual method of accounting, and comply with Australian Accounting Standards and the New South Wales Local Government Code of Accounting Practice and Financial Reporting.

Introduction

This report covers:

·    Addressing of the meeting by Council’s Auditor

·    Legislative requirements

·    Background to the Financial Policies

·    Budget Performance, and

·    Summary of Financial Results.

Addressing of the Meeting by Council’s Auditor

Mr Gary Mottau, a Partner of Hill Rogers (HR), will be addressing the meeting. Gary has strong experience in both Local Government and auditing, and HR has a large number of New South Wales councils as audit clients. This is the third year that HR has been Council’s auditor.

Legislative Requirements

The Local Government Act requires the following steps:

 

1.   Council officers prepare the financial statements

2.   Council issues a statement that the accounts are in order

3.   Council refers the financial statements to its auditors for checking

4.   The Auditor returns the financial statements with an audit opinion attached

5.   The statements are placed on public display and the community may make submissions, and

6.   The statements are formally presented during a council meeting.

 

Council officers have completed step 1 by preparing the statements and this report recommends completion of steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 at tonight’s meeting. The auditors have received an advance copy of the financial statements and have now completed several weeks of their audit program. It is considered appropriate that Council issue the required statement for the 2015-16 accounts.

Current Situation

The Financial Statements have been prepared by Council officers, using the accrual method of accounting, and comply with Australian Accounting Standards and the New South Wales Local Government Code of Accounting Practice and Financial Reporting. The financial statements are required to be audited by an independent auditor, and lodged with the Office of Local Government (OLG) before 31 October each year.

 

An audited copy of the financial statements was presented to a meeting of Council’s Audit Committee on 24 August 2016. At that meeting, it was resolved that:

 

“1.   The information contained in the report on the Draft 2015-16 Financial Statements be received.

2.   The Audit Committee refers the 2015-16 Financial Statements to Council for signing.”

All Entity consolidations and final audit adjustments have now been processed and are included in the Financial Statements. The Draft Financial Statements are attached to this report, and a hard copy can be provided upon request.

Summary of Financial Results

The following figures provide a summary of the key results for 2015-16. A final copy of the Annual Financial Statements can be provided, once they have been adopted by Council. Council’s financial performance is aligned with its continued focus on long-term financial sustainability.

 

 

All figures are in $’000 unless otherwise stated

* removes the forward-funded section 94 works (from internal reserves) ahead of receipts

 

Council’s financial position as at 30 June 2016 reflects a strong performance by Council during the 2015-16 Financial Year. All significant financial performance measures are in line with expectations and Council’s short term financial position is sound. After allowing for $55.1m of capital grants and contributions, Council finished the year with a surplus from ordinary activities of $69.4m (2014-15 surplus of $61.4m).

 

Unrestricted current assets exceed current liabilities by a ratio of 1.80:1. This is above the Office of Local Government’s benchmark of 1.5:1. As previously discussed with Council, this ratio is constrained each year by Council’s practice of forward funding s94 works in advance of contributions by borrowings against internal reserves. For 30 June 2016 these borrowings amounted to $7.8m. Council’s adopted benchmark is 1.25:1 (including internal loans). Once this indicator has been adjusted for internal loans for section 94 funding against reserves, the indicator increases to 2.03:1.

 

The outstanding loan liability has decreased to $64.4m ($67.8m in 2014-15). Code of Accounting Update 22 for 2013-14 amended the indicators used in measuring debt servicing, and introduced the Debt Service Cover Ratio. This ratio aims to measure the availability of operating cash to service debt (including interest, principal, and lease payments). The benchmark is greater than 2. For 2015-16, Council’s indicator was 2.08 (2.64 in 2014-15). Council’s weighted interest rate on borrowings has decreased from 4.50% at 30 June 2015 to 4.23% at 30 June 2016 due to the lower costs of capital, and the volume of refinancing included in 2014-15 (around $5m).

 

Council’s investment policies and strategies have been effective in producing solid returns on ratepayers’ funds. Council’s average return on investments for 2015-16 is 2.96% (2014-15 – 3.38%), which has outperformed Council’s benchmark (90 day BBSW) of 2.19%.

Detailed Key Indicators

Code Update 22 for 2013-14 included updated indicators which have again been included in the attached 2015-16 Draft Financial Statements.

 

·    Operating performance – measures Council’s achievement of containing operating expenditure within operating revenue. Capital grants and contributions, fair value adjustments, and reversal of revaluation decrements are excluded. The benchmark is greater than 0%. In 2015-16, Council’s indicator was 1.4% (6.22% in 2014-15).

·    Own source operating revenue – is the degree of reliance on external funding sources such as operating grants and contribution. The benchmark is greater than 60% - a higher percentage means a council receives more of its revenue from rates, fees, and charges, and is less reliant on grants and contributions. In 2015-16, Council’s indicator was 67.6% (68.3% in 2014-15).

·    Debt service cover ratio – measures the availability of operating cash to service the debt including interest, principal and lease payments. The benchmark for this indicator is anything over 2. For 2015-16, Council’s indicator was 2.08 (2.64 in 2014-15).

·    Cash expense cover ratio – indicates the number of months a Council can continue paying for its immediate expenses without additional cash inflow. The benchmark is greater than 3 months. Council’s indicator for 2015-16 was 5.25 months (4.61 months in 2014-15).

2015-16 Budget Performance

Council’s June Quarter and Year End Review was reported to the Ordinary Meeting of Council held 22 August 2016. Commentary relating to Council’s performance was provided in the “Organisational Performance Report”. The budget result for 2015-16 is a surplus of $132,400 after allowing for a number of transfers to reserve. Over the course of 2015-16, favourable budget variations have enabled Council to provision for contingencies, and in the June Review allocated $1.5m to various reserves.

 

The June Review of the 2015-16 Operational Plan is available on Council’s website, and a hardcopy version is available to the public upon request.

Key factors in the production of this year’s Financial Statements are discussed below.

Fair Value

Council concluded its move to Fair Value in the 2010-11 Financial Statements with the revaluation of Community Land. The OLG issued Circular (12-09), and confirmed the revaluation cycle of IPPE to a maximum 5 year cycle (unless Council assesses there has been material changes to the valuations beforehand). The dates for the next round of valuations are listed in the table below:

 

Asset Class

Due

Community Land; Other Assets; Land Improvements

30 June 2016

Water and Sewer

30 June 2017

Property, Plant and Equipment; Operational Land; Buildings

30 June 2018

Roads, Bridges, Footpaths, Drainage

30 June 2020

 

As shown in the table above, Council was required to conduct a revaluation for its Community Land, Other Assets, and Land Improvement assets at 30 June 2016. The revaluation of these assets have been completed as part of the 2015-16 year end process, and have added $553m to Council’s Balance Sheet through Infrastructure, Property, Plant, and Equipment. This increase is attributable to:

 

·    Land Under Roads increasing $542m due to the update of the 2015 valuations as provided by the Valuer General. Previous year’s recognition of LUR used the 2012 valuations. This large increase in LUR is due to the increase in the values, and the amount of LUR that Council has – 3,200 hectares.

·    Community Land increased $10.2m mainly due to the valuations provided by the Valuer General that is used for the recognition of Council’s Community Land.

·    Artworks increased by $1.3m from an insurance valuation conducted in 2015-16.

Investment Properties

Council initially booked its Investment Properties in the 2004-05 Financial Year. At this point Council’s Investment Property portfolio was valued at $9.0m. These properties are assessed and valued in line with market conditions using a registered valuer each year. Any gains or losses are booked to the Income Statement.

 

In 2013-14, Council engaged an external valuer to conduct these valuations. The result of these valuations was a slight decrease of $501,000 (2.4%) being recorded against Council’s Investment Properties. This was the first time in 10 years that the values of these properties had been externally valued – they had previously been valued internally by a registered valuer employed by Council. The reduction in value for 2013-14 was mainly attributable to the prevailing market conditions. As at 30 June 2014, Council’s Investment Properties were valued at $20.2m.

 

During 2014-15, Council sold three of its Investment Properties for a total of $6.5m, reducing the value of this asset class to $14.1m. As part of the 2014-15 Financial Statement process, Council commissioned a “desktop update” of the valuations of Investment Properties. This update was conducted by the same external firm that completed the full review of Council’s Investment Properties for the 2013-14 Statements. The result of these updated valuations was an increase in the value of Council’s Investment Properties of $1.3m (9.2%). The total value of Investment Properties reported in Council’s 2014-15 Financial Statements was $15.4m.

 

Again in 2015-16, Council engaged the same external firm to conduct a desktop update of Investment Properties. This resulted in an increase in the value of these Investment Properties of $3.9m (25%). The value of Council’s Investment Properties at 30 June 2016 was $19.2m.

Council’s Infrastructure Assets

During 2014-15 JRA was commissioned to provide a report to Council on its Infrastructure Assets. JRA provided their “Infrastructure Assessment Report” in June 2015. This report found that Council’s infrastructure backlog presents a manageable financial risk, with the infrastructure sustainability targets under Fit for the Future being achievable within 5 years.

 

The backlog previously reported in Special Schedule 7 included low risk items to bring to satisfactory standard. The report of JRA recalculated the backlog to align with community expectations for affordable levels of service and remove upgrade / expansion amounts. Special Schedule 7 - “Report on Infrastructure Assets” - in the attached Financial Statements has retained this methodology for 30 June 2016. The estimated cost to bring to satisfactory standard (BTS) stands at $15.9m at 30 June 2016.

 

There are several indicators that are also shown in Special Schedule 7:

 

Infrastructure renewals ratio – used to assess the rate at which infrastructure assets are being renewed against the rate at which they are depreciating. Council’s indicator in 2015-16 was 53.04% (39.16% in 2014-15). The benchmark is greater than 100%.

Infrastructure backlog – shows what proportion the backlog is against the total value of Council’s infrastructure. Council’s indicator in 2015-16 was 1.32% (1.36% in 2014-15). The benchmark is less than 2%.

Asset maintenance ratio – compares the actual versus required annual asset maintenance. A ratio of above 1.0 indicates that the Council is investing enough funds within the year to stop the infrastructure backlog from growing. The benchmark is greater than 1.0. Council’s indicator for 2015-16 was 1.07 (1.14 in 2014-15).

Recognition of Land Under Roads (LUR)

AASB 1051 was issued in December 2007 and deals with Land Under Roads (LUR).

 

As previously mentioned, Council also revalued all LUR based on new valuations received by the Valuer General that determines the municipal rate that is used in the calculation. Total LUR that is recognised in Note 9 of the Financial Statements now stands at $1,934m.

Legislative Requirements

The Local Government Act classifies various transactions as being write-offs of rates and charges. The reasons for write-offs include properties becoming exempt from rates, pensioner rebates, changes in rating category, rounding down of payments by up to 4 cents, postponed rates, domestic waste charges reversed because they were levied in error and rates and charges reversed due to amended valuations.

 

The following tables summarises the rates and sundry debtor’s amounts written off during 2015-16 under delegated authority, or pursuant to Council resolutions, and are provided for information:

Sundry Debtors Recommended for Write-Off (not included in the above)

As part of the year-end review, Sundry Debtors are reviewed for potential write-off. For the 2015-16 year-end review, the following Debtors are recommended to be written off:

 

Ms Harvey (SD57597) - $2,405

This debt was raised in December 2014 for outstanding childcare fees between June and September 2014.

 

Council Officers have carried out an electoral roll search in an attempt to locate the debtor. Ms Harvey no longer lives at the address supplied by Ridge-ee-Didge Children’s Centre, and Council’s officers could not locate the debtor or speak with her on the contact numbers provided, despite leaving several messages.

 

An amount of $1,850 was written off in 2003 and $1,276 was written off in 2006 for previous outstanding childcare debts after legal action was exhausted due to the hardship of the debtor. Ms Harvey is a single mother with four children, does not work, and is in receipt of the pension.  All goods of value had already been taken and sold at auction from previous Writs and the debtor owned no remaining goods of value.

 

No payments have been received from this debtor and legal action was not taken as the debtor cannot be located.

 

Selwan Hammou (SD60787) - $36,593

This debt was raised in May 2013 for the recovery of fines as a result of a criminal conviction for offences against Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1998.

 

This matter arose out of an investigation conducted by a RID Squad officer in relation to a property in St Marys where the Defendant was convicted of dumping construction waste. The Local Court made orders requiring the Defendant to pay approximately $36,593 in fines. Those orders were made in February 2013. In November 2012, the defendant was declared bankrupt. Despite further debt recovery action, no payments have been received for this debt. Given that the defendant was bankrupt, recovery of the monies is highly unlikely, and it is no longer considered cost effective for Council to pursue this debt.

 

Zaika Indian Pty Ltd (SD60706) - $3,958

This debt was raised between September 2011 and April 2015 for health inspections, annual administration charges, an improvement notice and legal fees. Strike off action is currently in progress for Zaika Indian Pty Ltd. Council is not listed as a secured debtor in these proceedings and once the company’s assets are dissolved, it is extremely unlikely that Council will receive any payment towards the debt.

 

No payments have been received for this debt.

Summary

The draft Financial Statements are presented for Council to form its opinion. The required opinion is set out in the following recommendation. If resolved, the Statement of Council's Opinion can be signed and handed to the auditors at tonight’s meeting.

 

The 2015-16 Annual Financial Statements are nearing completion. Council’s financial position as at 30 June 2016 reflects the strong performance of Council during the year. All significant financial performance measures are in line with expectations and Council’s short term financial position remains sound. After allowing for $55.1m of capital grants and contributions, Council finished the year with a surplus from ordinary activities of $69.4m.

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.    The information contained in the report on Draft 2015-16 Financial Statements be received

2.    Pursuant to s413(2)(c) it is the Council's opinion that:

a.   The financial statements and schedules have been drawn up in accordance with the Local Government Act 1993 and Regulations, the Local Government Code of Accounting Practice and Financial Reporting, the Local Government Australian Infrastructure Management Guidelines, and Australian Accounting Standards. The Code requires a phasing in of the new accounting requirements

b.   The statements comply with Australian Statements of Accounting Concepts

c.   The financial statements present fairly the Council's financial position as at 30 June 2016 and the operating result for the year then ended

d.   The statements are in accord with Council's accounting and other records.

3.    Pursuant to the Local Government Code of Accounting Practice and Financial Reporting and section 215 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 it is the Council's opinion that:

a.   The accompanying Special Purpose Financial Report has been drawn up in accordance with the Local Government Act 1993 and Regulations, the Local Government Code of Accounting Practice and Financial Reporting, and the requirements of National Competition Policy. The Code requires the inclusion of various charges and subsidies which are not actually paid or payable.

b.   The report is a special purpose report and is not required to comply with Australian Accounting Standards. The above legislative requirements differ from Australian Accounting Standards and hence the report does not comply with Australian Accounting Standards.

c.   The financial statements present a modelled scenario for comparative purposes. They do not report an actual result.

4.   Council confirm its endorsement of the budget in the knowledge that some of its business activities are not making commercial returns. The existence of notional subsidies represents Council’s commitment to its community service obligations.

5.   The Statements be forwarded to Council's Auditors.

6.   Abandonments for 2015-16 as detailed, including those Sundry Debtors detailed in the report, be written off.

7.   The balance of stores and materials be adjusted in the stores and materials registers in accordance with the various write-offs.

End of Term Report   

 

Compiled by:               Allegra Zakis, Corporate Planning Coordinator 

Authorised by:            Andrew Moore, Chief Financial Officer   

 

Outcome

We have confidence in our Council

Strategy

Provide opportunities for our community to participate in making decisions about the City's future

Service Activity

Provide information about Council's services and policy positions

      

 

Executive Summary

Under the Integrated Planning and Reporting Legislation Council must prepare an End of Term Report and present it to the final meeting of the outgoing Council. The report must summarise the progress made towards the Community Outcomes and cannot be used for election purposes.  This report recommends that the End of Term Report be adopted, and, in accordance with the legislation, be included as an Appendix to the 2015-16 Annual Report. 

Background

The Integrated Planning and Reporting legislation under the Local Government Act sets the reporting schedule council must follow to ensure we are providing regular information to the community on our activities and progress towards our adopted outcomes.  Quarterly and six monthly reports are prepared to outline our progress against the Operational Plan, including any matters off track or over budget.  The Annual Report provides information on how we are progressing against our stated activities in the Delivery Program and the End of Term Report provides information on how we are progressing towards the outcomes contained in the Community Plan. 

End of Term Report

The End of Term Report is unique in that it is not prepared on a financial year basis – the reporting period runs from September 2012 to September 2016.  There has been much to celebrate during this time, as well as some significant challenges which have impacted on our ability to deliver on all of our commitments.  What we have achieved as a growing city, and the steps we have taken to plan for our future are presented at the beginning of the report, followed by a summary of our income and expenditure from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2016.  More detailed information on each of the Community Outcomes is also provided.

 

The End of Term Report is also intended to provide information and guidance to the incoming Council, and inform their preparation of the new Community Strategic Plan and Delivery Program.  It identifies the issues and achievements that have shaped our City for the past four years, and what we need to be aware of going forward. 

 

This is only the second End of Term Report we have prepared since the introduction of the legislation, and since 2012 the Office of Local Government has clarified that this report cannot be used as election material in the upcoming Council election.  For this reason, the End of Term Report attached to tonight’s Business Paper will not be published as a separate document until after the election.

 

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.    The information contained in the report on End of Term Report be received.

2.    The End of Term Report be adopted by Council and included as an Appendix to the 2015-16 Annual Report.

Council Operations between the Local Government Election and the 26 September 2016 Ordinary Council Meeting   

 

Compiled by:               Adam Beggs, Governance Officer

Authorised by:            Glenn McCarthy, Governance Manager  

 

Outcome

We have confidence in our Council

Strategy

Demonstrate transparency and ethical behaviour

Service Activity

Ensure that the organisation promotes ethical behaviour, risk management, transparent decision making and meets contemporary governance standards

      

 

Executive Summary

The Local Government Elections will be held on Saturday 10 September 2016. Under section 233(2)(b) of the Local Government Act 1993 all Councillors – other than the Mayor – cease to hold office on the day of the ordinary election.

 

The position is different for the Mayor. Under section 230(3)(b), the Mayor holds the Mayoral position until a successor is declared to be elected to the office. This applies whether or not the Mayor is re-elected as a Councillor at the ordinary election. The proviso is that for a Mayor elected by the Councillors, that the Mayoral election must be held within 3 weeks after the ordinary election.

 

Council, in anticipation of the poll being declared by mid-September has resolved that the Mayoral Election be held on Monday 26 September 2016 (which is 16 days after the ordinary election).

Current Situation

Council’s current practice stipulates that development applications falling within the nine categories set out below must be brought to Council. These include applications for which:

 

1.   A Councillor has requested that the matter be determined by the Council;

2.   Significant public objection has been raised;

3.   The application generates significant traffic, or otherwise warrants referral to Council;

4.   The development is proposed to be undertaken upon land owned by Council;

5.   The applicant is Council;

6.   The applicant is a Councillor, or related to a Councillor, and the application is for a development which is either:

·   On land other than that which is their current or proposed place of residence, or

·   Not to be used for residential purposes by the applicant;

7.   The applicant is an employee of Council, or related to an employee of Council, and the application is for development which is either:

·   On land other than that which is their current or proposed place of residence, or

·   Not to be used for residential purposes by the applicant;

8.   The development was commenced ahead of development consent being sought;

9.   The development is a place of public worship or community centre.

 

The upcoming elections will effectively result in deferring the determination of development applications within these categories for a period of 6 weeks until the Ordinary Meeting to be held on 24 October 2016, with the business of 26 September Ordinary Meeting being confined to the Mayoral/Deputy Mayoral election and appointment of Committees only. It is considered prudent for interim alternative governance arrangements to be put in place.

 

Council presently has a policy ‘Decision-Making Arrangements during Council’s Christmas Recess’ whereby development applications which would normally warrant reporting to Council, can be determined by the General Manager, under the General Manager’s delegation, in consultation with the Mayor, or in the Mayor’s absence, the Deputy Mayor. This same policy could be applied, but with the modification for the period when Council has no Deputy Mayor (i.e. from 10 September 2016 to 25 September 2016).

 

It is proposed therefore that:

·    for the period between the day following the last Ordinary meeting of the present Council (6 September 2016) up until the day prior to the Council Election (09 September 2016), that development applications which would normally warrant reporting to Council, be  determined by the General Manager, under the General Manager’s existing delegations, and the Mayor, or in the Mayor’s absence, the Deputy Mayor be consulted prior to determination. 

·    for the period between the Council Election (10 September 2016) and the day before the first Ordinary meeting of the new Council (25 September 2016), that development applications which would normally warrant reporting to Council, be determined by the General Manager, under the General Manager’s existing delegations, and the Mayor be consulted prior to determination.

·    for the period between the day following the first Ordinary meeting of the new Council (27 September 2016) and the day prior to the second Ordinary meeting of the new Council (24 October 2016), that development applications which would normally warrant reporting to Council, be determined by the General Manager, under the General Manager’s existing delegations, and the Mayor, or in the Mayor’s absence, the Deputy Mayor be consulted prior to determination.

 

Other routine Council operational and administrative matters will continue as normal. The General Manager will exercise his powers to ensure the smooth operation of the organisation. 

 

At this stage Council Officers are not aware of any Development Applications which need to be determined during the above periods. In the event that any Development Applications need to be determined these will be reported to Council in accordance with the above protocols.

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.     The information contained in the report on Council Operations between the Local Government Election and the 26 September 2016 Ordinary Council Meeting be received

2.     Development Applications which would normally warrant reporting to Council between 6 September 2016 and 24 October 2016 inclusive be determined under the General Manager’s delegation by:

·     the General Manager, after consultation with the Mayor, or in the Mayor's absence, the Deputy Mayor, in the periods from 6 September 2016 to 9 September 2016 inclusive and from 27 September 2016 to 23 October 2016 inclusive;

·     the General Manager, after consultation with the Mayor, in the period from 10 September to 25 September 2016.

3.     A report be presented to the Ordinary Council Meeting to be held on 24 October 2016 if any delegations of authority were used during the above periods.

1        Presence of the Public

 

Everyone is entitled to attend a meeting of the Council and those of its Committees of which all members are Councillors, except as provided by Section 10 of the Local Government Act, 1993.

A Council, or a Committee of the Council of which all the members are Councillors, may close to the public so much of its meeting as comprises:

 

(a)          the discussion of any of the matters listed below; or

(b)          the receipt or discussion of any of the information so listed.

The matters and information are the following:

 

(a)          personnel matters concerning particular individuals;

(b)          the personal hardship of any resident or ratepayers;

(c)           information that would, if disclosed, confer a commercial advantage on a person with whom the council is conducting (or proposes to conduct) business;

(d)          commercial information of a confidential nature that would, if disclosed:

·         prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it; or

 

·         confer a commercial advantage on a competitor of the Council; or

 

·         reveal a trade secret.

 

(e)          information that would, if disclosed, prejudice the maintenance of the law;

(f)            matters affecting the security of the Council, Councillors, Council staff or Council property;

(g)        advice concerning litigation, or advice that would otherwise be privileged from production in legal proceedings on the ground of legal professional privilege.

The grounds on which part of a meeting is closed must be stated in the decision to close that part of the meeting and must be recorded in the minutes of the meeting.

The grounds must specify the following:

(a)          the relevant provision of section 10A(2);

(b)          the matter that is to be discussed during the closed part of the meeting;

(c)           the reasons why the part of the meeting is being closed, including (if the matter concerned is a matter other than a personnel matter concerning particular individuals, the personal hardship of a resident or ratepayer or a trade secret) an explanation of the way in which discussion of the matter in open meeting would be, on balance, contrary to the public interest.

Members of the public may make representations at a Council or Committee Meeting as to whether a part of a meeting should be closed to the public

The process which should be followed is:

 

·         a motion, based on the recommendation below, is moved and seconded

·         the Chairperson then asks if any member/s of the public would like to make representations as to whether a part of the meeting is closed to the public

·         if a member/s of the public wish to make representations, the Chairperson invites them to speak before the Committee makes its decision on whether to close the part of the meeting or not to the public.

·         if no member/s of the public wish to make representations the Chairperson can then put the motion to close the meeting to the public.

The first action is for a motion to be moved and seconded based on the recommendation below.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:

 

Outcome 7

 

2        Senior Staff Matters 

This item has been referred to Committee of the Whole as the report refers to personnel matters concerning particular individuals and discussion of the matter in open meeting would be, on balance, contrary to the public interest.
