Councillor's Comment

2015/2016 Mayor's Comment from the Annual Report

Late 2015 saw the completion of the sound stage in Apex Park, adding another great venue for outdoor events for the district.

Community feedback has been positive on the planned skatepark and spray park concepts. These projects will be prepared ready for grant funding submissions due in early 2017. This project fits with our objective of making active facilities available for our residents, as well as continuing the development of a park that attracts and prolongs visits to our district.

Sealing of the first stage of the Kyancutta/Mt Wedge road has been completed, with Council also successfully undertaking the contract of preparing the Elliston Council road for sealing. Special Local Roads funding has again been approved for the next 5 kilometres and this has been programmed into our works program.

The above projects fit witin our Council's priority projects which also include; pursuing solar power initiatives, greening townships, waste resource sharing with neighbouring Councils, investigating better internet bandwidth options to support business growth, invesitigate the feasibility of an industrial park, bike/pedestrian pathway along Eyre Highway to Wudinna southern town entrance, assessment of the structural integrity of the Wudinna Hall along with continuing opportunities for resource sharing.

Our Council continue to represent our district at Eyre Peninsula and South Australian Local Government levels and have the support of the Whyalla Eyre Peninsula Development Board who are keen to work with and support Council and business development throughout the region. I'd like to thank our Councillors who are committed to the district and our community goals and for the time they make available to attend the many activities required of local government.

Remember if you would like to contact Council with ideas, suggestions/or report areas of concern, you are always welcome to visit the office, phone, or email Wudinna District Council.

To all the volunteer groups and individuals in our district a big thank you for the work put in by all to ensure our clubs and services continue to run. Whether it is Sports, Lions, CWA's, Swimming Pools, Progress Associations, Seniors Clubs, Emergency Services, Men's Shed, School committees and there are many more. We need all throughout our district and are thankful to those who contribute. Anyone who would like to be involved is always welcome to join the groups.

In closing I would also like to thank our Works Staff, Administration team, Senior Officers and Alan our CEO for their dedication and work for our district.
