The business on the agenda includes:
# The first draft of the financial statements for 2022-23.
It includes an update on the sale of the Gosford council chambers.
The financials say: “At the date of this Report, Council has a signed contract for sale with Landcom for the Gosford Administration site.”
# A choice for Mr Hart about what he does next with the Austin Butler reserve, Woy Woy issue: does he choose best practice as outlined by the Local Planning Panel or go with the staff recommendation that ignores the panel’s advice or perhaps, staff didn’t get a chance to update the report since the planning advice came only days before the agenda for this meeting became public.
The evening is then dominated by waste; human waste.
When IPART allowed Council its massive water and sewer rate hikes last year, it added a few items it wanted Council to work on and these reports are a result of that.
They include a progress report, a complaints management system and a plan on educating residents.
