Council received endorsement last night from our Audit Committee that accelerating the footpath replacement program will actually be a financial benefit to us. Their endorsement resulted from an in depth review by our administration who obviously concur.
This is good news for those among us who have been told they must wait up to another 25 years for their footpath to be replaced. Such a time frame would see those footpaths that were bricked some time back being due for renewal also.
Where to from here?
A workshop or two will be provided to elected members so that we can understand the detail of this assessment. If we agree with the Audit Committee and our Administration we will likely be getting this started as early as our next budget.
