Drivers on Crawford Street around the Council Offices have recently noted an empty street where once many cars were parked during office hours. Was it a public holiday? Had council had drastic staff cuts? None of the above.
Council staff and visitor parking is now at the rear of the Council offices allowing for turning spaces for road trains into the new Toll Transport yards opposite.
The Mayor of Roper Gulf Regional Council has expressed concern that the freezing of the indexation of Federal Assistance Grants has left rural and remote Councils missing an important and expected funding boost.
“These grants were set to increase with the Consumer Price Index and expected population growth over the next four years but with the Federal budget these have now been frozen.” Mayor Jack explained.
“It is communities like ours that will be hit the hardest as we rely on the Federal Assistance Grants more heavily than urban local government due to our relatively low rates base. We often have large road networks that need constant maintenance and costs never faced by urban areas. This is going to effect most rural and remote local governments,” he added.
