The Invercargill City Council today adopted its Draft Annual Plan for 2010/11 and two amendments to the Long Term Council Community Plan and has put them out for public consultation, Invercargill City Council Chief Executive Officer Richard King said.
Mr King said submissions on both proposals close on Friday 14 May.
The Draft Annual Plan identifies nine key issues for discussion:
Mr King said that Council also wanted to clarify its direction with respect to the Bluff Swimming Pool and Solid Waste Management. This was being done via two proposed amendments to the Long Term Council Community Plan.
“The Long Term Plan stated that Council would assist the Bluff Community in determining what swimming facilities it needed and how it would be funded, operated and maintained. Two options have been developed and Council would encourage the community to submit on their preference.
“Council wants to ensure that the solid waste collection service it provides meets, as far as possible, the needs of its communities, now and into the future. Four options have been developed for the community to consider and Council would value feedback,” he said.
Mr King said there would be four public meetings held for the community to be informed on these issues. The first is to be held on Wednesday April 14 at the Elles Road Bible Chapel from 7pm-9pm.
Copies of the documents will be available from the Invercargill City Council Help Desk, the Bluff Service Centre and the Invercargill Public Library. Copies can also be downloaded from Council’s website www.icc.govt.nz
Submissions will be heard on 25 May 2010, Mr King said.
