Some agenda items of interest include:
The fantastic work being done around the District by our Parks and Reserves Team
A Progress report on the wastewater treatment plant upgrade
Actions taken and costs involved to mitigate the smell at the existing wastewater ponds at Daleton Farm after an unknown contaminant entered the system, as well as actions being taken to prevent a reoccurrence of odour for extended periods of time should contamination reoccur. The costs outlined in the report are covered by a mixture of 2020-21 operating costs, upcoming 2021-22 operating costs budget and forecasted capex for future installation and power of aerators. 2021-22 operating costs can be managed within existing approvals and the capital for arerators included within low interest loans secured from the Local Government Funding Agency, meaning no current additional cost this financial year and minimal future direct cost.
