A new quarterly report aimed at improving openness, transparency and accountability regarding projects is now being presented to Council each quarter.
CEO Evan King said the new report outlines the projects underway, with their budget and notes on progress.
“We know the community has an appetite for more information about how Council is working for the community and delivering on projects,” Mr King said.
“This report allows not only Councillors to see where we are at with the many projects we have underway, but also anyone in the community who is interested.”
The report details all projects, both operational and capital expenditure, their forecast budget and the spend to date.
The report takes the legislative reporting requirements a step further, detailing how many projects Council has completed, has underway and is planning to undertake.
“Capital works are our infrastructure projects like roads, bridges, facilities and footpaths,” Mr King added.
“Operational projects are usually non-construction and include the development of strategies.
“This report shows 136 capital projects and 75 operational projects for the 2019/20 financial year, which is a significant amount for a Council of our size.”
