July Council Meeting Wrap 2023

July Council Meeting Wrap

Publish Date: 14 July 2023

Buloke Shire Council’s July Meeting was highlighted by the acknowledgment of achievements against the Council Plan 2021-2025 Year 2 Annual Plan.

The final report on the Council Plan 2021-2025 Annual Plan Year 2 was noted by Council, with strong progress reported despite the impacts of the October 2022 flood event on Council’s internal resources and access to external materials and labour. While ten of the actions have been deferred due to the impacts of the flood, eleven have been completed and closed, or remain ongoing.

Some of the highlights of the Annual Plan Year 2 include: delivery of the Agriculture Resilience Project; continuation of VicHealth Local Government Partnership; publication of the Loddon Mallee Partnership Early Childhood Education and Childcare in Rural Areas Report; strong increase in tourism marketing projects; and two revisions of the Advocacy Strategy.

Council will enter a period of community consultation about a proposed 15-year license for an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station proposed for 68A Woods Street, Donald, that would be installed by Evie Networks.

The proposed site would increase the Buloke network to three charging stations, complementing EV sites in Sea Lake and Wycheproof.

Council has adopted the Instrument of Delegation to the Chief Executive Officer, which provides the Power for Council to delegate a power, duty or function to the CEO, subject to specific limitations specified in this section of the Act.

In view of the range of legislative and regulatory responsibilities of Local Government it would not be possible for the sector to function effectively if all decisions were required to be made at Council Meetings. Instead, decision-making powers can be delegated to special committees or to Council staff. The nature and extent of these delegations are controlled through formal Instruments of Delegation.

Minutes and documents relating to the July Council Meeting. 

Buloke Shire Council will hold its next scheduled monthly Council Meeting in the Wycheproof Supper Room from 7:00pm on Wednesday 9 August 2023.
