Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.1      SF830              021008         Election of Deputy Mayor

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

It is a requirement under the Local government (Elections) Regulations 1998, Clause 124, that the annual election of a Deputy Mayor is to be in accordance with Schedule 3 to that Regulation.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1        That the election of a Deputy Mayor proceed by ordinary (secret) ballot if a ballot is required.

 

2        That nominations be invited and received by the General Manager as returning Officer for the election of Deputy Mayor.

 

3        That the election of Deputy Mayor proceed.

 

4        That following the election, the General Manager declare Cr…….elected as Deputy Mayor for the term of office expiring September 2009.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

There are options as to the method of election being open voting (show of hands), ordinary (secret) ballot, or a preferential (secret) ballot.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Schedule 3 provides that the General manager is the Returning Officer, that nominations may be without notice but nominations must be in writing by two or more Councillors (one of whom may be the nominee) and is not valid unless the nominee has indicated consent to the nomination in writing and the nomination is delivered or sent to the Returning Officer.

 

Note:  It is requested that the nomination be on the form especially designed for nomination purposes which is enclosed with the business paper (yellow form).

 

If only one Councillor is nominated, that Councillor is elected.  Where more than one nomination is received the Council must resolve whether the election is to proceed by preferential ballot, ordinary ballot or open voting.  (Preferential ballot and ordinary ballot are in fact secret ballots while open voting is a show of hands.)

 

Ordinary Ballot or Open Voting

 

The process for an ordinary ballot or open voting is as follows:

 

·      Where there are only two candidates, the candidate with the highest number of votes is elected, and if they are tied the one to be elected is the one chosen by lot.

 

·      Where there are three or more candidates, the one with the lowest number of votes is excluded.

 

·      If three or more candidates then remain, a further vote is taken and the one with the lowest number of votes from that further vote is excluded.

 

·      If after that three or more candidates still remain the procedure is to be repeated until only two candidates remain.

 

To recap, where there are only two candidates (remaining) with equal votes the one elected is the one chosen by lot.  By contrast, where there are three or more candidates and some are tied for lowest, the one excluded is the one chosen by lot.

 

If the method of voting resolved by Council is by ordinary ballot or open voting then Part 2 of the Regulations apply (paragraph 20-2360 and onwards).

 

Preferential Ballot

 

The ballot papers are to contain the names of all the candidates.  The Councillors are to mark their votes by placing the numbers “1”, “2”, and so on against the various names to indicate their order of preference for all the candidates.

 

If a candidate has an absolute majority of first preference votes, the candidate is elected.  If not the candidate with the lowest number of first preference votes is excluded and the votes on the unexhausted ballot papers counted to him or her are transferred to the candidates with second preferences on those ballot papers.  A candidate who then has an absolute majority of votes is elected, but if no candidate then has an absolute majority of votes, the process is repeated until one candidate has received an absolute majority of votes.

 

For tied candidates, if there are 2 candidates and the numbers of votes cast for each are equal, the candidate whose name is first chosen by lot is taken to be elected.  If there are 3 or more candidates remaining in the election and the numbers of votes cast for 2 or more candidates are equal and those candidates are the ones with the lowest number of votes, then the candidate whose name is first chosen by lot is taken to have the lowest number of votes and is excluded.

 

Choosing by lot

 

The names of the candidates who have equal numbers of votes are written on similar slips of paper by the returning officer, the slips are folded by the returning officer so as to prevent the names being seen, the slips are mixed and one is drawn at random by the returning officer and the candidate whose name is on the drawn slip is chosen.

There has been no consultation.

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.5      SF842              021008         Clarence Regional Library Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

Some years ago Council entered into an agreement with councils comprising the "Clarence Region" with a view to providing a library service on a joint and cooperative basis through what is known as the Clarence Regional Library Committee.

 

The Committee formerly comprised two Councillors from each of the constituent councils.  Since the amalgamation of councils in the Clarence Valley, the Committee will comprise two representatives from that Council and Bellingen and Nambucca Shire Councils.

 

Council's elected members were Councillors Nash and the Mayor as alternate delegate.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1        That one Councillor be appointed to the Clarence Regional Library Committee.

 

2        That the Manager Community and Cultural Services be appointed as Council’s second representative on the Clarence Regional Library Committee.

 

 

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Whilst this is technically not a committee of Council it is appropriate that Council’s representation be reviewed at this time.  As a partner to the Clarence Regional Library, Council obviously requires a say in its operations.

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.6      SF842              021008         Community Services Committee
Appointment of Council Operational Committees

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

The Committee addresses human services needs in the community.

 

The Councillor representatives were the Mayor (ex officio) and Councillors Flack and Nash.

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That two Councillors be appointed to the Community Services Committee and with the Mayor as ex officio.

 

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The Community Services Committee’s purpose is to advise Council on the most effective means to meet the social needs, and promote the personal well-being of the residents of the Nambucca Shire local government area, thereby creating a sense of community and improving people’s quality of life.

 

Its objectives are:

 

To advise Council on community services issues including those referred from Councillors, Council meetings, Council officers and the general public.

 

To analyse, help develop and advise on policy in relation to resource planning issues and general socio-economic changes.

 

To make recommendations regarding applications for grants for community services in the Nambucca Shire.

 

The Committee’s brief is broad ranging covering the social aspects of the common approach to triple bottom line sustainable development (environment, social  and economic).  The Committee needs to consider its preferred mix of shorter term operational issues (eg grant applications, service delivery) to the longer term strategic issues facing the LGA (eg ageing of the population).  Both need to be considered.

 

The current membership of the Committee:

 

Cr Flack (Chairperson)                                  Ms Angie Evans and Ms Anne Smyth (Deputy Chairs)

Cr Sue Nash                                       Ms Jenny Zirkler (Macksville Health Campus)

Ms Ursula Donohue (DoCS)                           Ms Mari Webb

Mr Paul Sekfy (Neighbourhood Centre Coordinator)

Ms Glenys Munro (NV Community Services Council Inc)

Ms Kerrie Bowtell (TAFE Outreach)

Ms Suzanne Homes (Centrelink)         

Mr Ross Chalmers (Ministry of Transport Regional Co-ordinator)

Mr Glenn Robinson (Coffs Clarence Health Participation Forum)

Ms Denise Olsen (Nambucca Valley Children’s Group Inc and Family Support).

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.7      SF842              021008         Development Applications Notifications Committee
Appointment of Council Operational Committees

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

The Committee comprises any three Councillors to officiate at any one time and these Councillors are to be determined or selected on the basis of residential proximity to the site or location of the application with the Director Environment and Planning empowered to call on any three Councillors at any one time.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1        That the Development Applications Notifications Committee not be established at this time.

 

2        That the need or otherwise for the Committee be determined following the report on the six           month trial of the General Manager’s amended delegations for determining development           applications which is due in December 2008.

 

 

 

OPTIONS

 

The previous arrangement was that, “this Committee comprise any three Councillors to officiate at any one time and these Councillors be determined or selected on the basis of residential proximity to the site with the Director Environment & Planning empowered to call on any three Councillors at any one time.”

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The purpose of the Development Applications Notifications Committee is to allow for the determination of development applications where there are unresolved objections.  Notwithstanding the composition of the Committee, the practice had been to inform all Councillors of a proposed site meeting and invite their attendance.  The Director Environment and Planning then makes a formal determination of the application following the meeting.  Following the meeting the practice had been to report the outcome for endorsement by Council but technically it only needs to be reported for information.

 

There have been a number of issues in the operation of this Committee which resulted in a report to the previous Council on 15 May 2008 which is attached.

 

In particular there has always been an issue in defining an “unresolved” objection whereby staff may believe that an objection has been resolved by the imposition of a condition but where the objector may be of a different view.  Another problem has been that whilst the constitution of the Committee provides for it being convened by any 3 Councillors being determined on the basis of residential proximity, in reality all Councillors sought to be notified.  This often meant delays in attempting to schedule a meeting which all interested Councillors could attend.  Finally, there have also been instances where a quorum of three Councillors was not achieved which resulted in the development application being deferred to the following Council meeting.

 

At Council’s meeting on 15 May 2008 it was resolved to trial amended delegations to the General Manager whereby he be provided with delegated authority to determine any development application except for those where objections have been received and which may be “called in” by any Councillor for determination by either the Development Applications Notification Committee (DANC) or full Council.  With Council meeting twice a month, “called in” applications have been referred to full Council and not DANC.  To date there have been no issues with the trial. 


There has been a reduction in staff resources required to organise DANC meetings and the “call in” process, so far, has arguably improved the level of community and media awareness of particular applications.

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 0.0      SF842              021008         General Manager's Performance Review Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

To date the Committee has comprised all Councillors.  In accordance with performance guidelines for General Managers produced by the Department of Local Government it is recommended that the Committee comprise the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and one other Councillor to be nominated by the Council.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1        That the General Manager’s Performance Review Committee comprise the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and one other Councillor to be nominated by the Council.

 

2        That the Performance Review Committee obtain feedback from Councillors not on the Committee in the week prior to a performance review session.

 

3        That Council delegate to the Performance Review Committee all authority to make decisions about performance, any actions that should be taken, and the determination of the new performance agreement.

 

4        That for the first review by the new Council, a facilitator be employed to provide training in performance management as well as to act as facilitator.

 

5        That the General Manager’s contract be varied by agreement to reflect the recommended composition of the Performance Review Committee.

 

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

The existing arrangement has been that all Councillors have been appointed to the General Manager’s Performance Review Committee.  This remains an option, although not recommended by the Department of Local Government.

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The General Manager’s contract provides that performance monitoring shall be conducted by a Committee of the Council comprising all available Councillors.  The performance review is to be conducted in accordance with Clause 6.1 of the Contract. 

 

The Mayor is to seek comments from the Councillors and report these to the Committee of Council prior to its monitoring or review process. 

 

The Committee’s review findings are to be reported to the Council in writing.

 

In October 2007, the Department of Local Government issued Circular 07-52 dealing with performance guidelines for general managers.  The Circular may be viewed on the Department’s website www.dlg.nsw.gov.au.

 

The guidelines (page 3) provide that,

 

 “Whilst the Council can undertake the performance management of its General Manager, it is recommended that it delegate this task to a GM Performance Review Panel.  A Panel provides a better forum for constructive discussion and feedback.  It should comprise the Mayor, optionally the Deputy Mayor and one Councillor nominated by the Council.  The General Manager should have the option of nominating another Councillor to the Panel.  It is good practice to enable Councillors not on the Panel to provide feedback to the Mayor in the week prior to each session.  All Councillors should be notified of the relevant dates of the sessions to assist with this process.

 

Those councillors selected to take part in the Panel should have received training on the performance management of General Managers.  Training in the performance management of General Managers should be part of councils’ induction program for councillors following each election.

 

If the decision is made to delegate to a Panel, the extent of that delegation should be clear.  It is recommended that the whole process of performance management be delegated to the Panel, including decisions about performance, any actions that should be taken, and the determination of the new performance agreement.  The result should be reported to a closed meeting of Council or a Committee of Council.  This should not be an opportunity to debate the results, or re-enact the performance agreement of the General Manager.”

 

There will obviously be a cost in organising training and facilitation for at least the first review.  The General Manager’s contract already provides for the appointment of an independent facilitator to assist with the performance review, even though this has not been undertaken for the past 2 years.

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.9      SF791              021008         Land Development Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

The Land Development Committee has comprised all Councillors.

 

Its meeting frequency should be increased so that it is at least quarterly.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1        That all Councillors be appointed to the Land Development Committee.

 

2        That the Land Development Committee meet at least on a quarterly basis.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

The only possible option is to have a Committee which comprises some, but not all, Councillors.   Given the value of operational land in the property portfolio and its strategic importance to economic development in particular, this is not recommended.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Council has an extensive property portfolio that comprises both operational and community land.  Council has also successfully undertaken entrepreneurial investment in industrial land as a means of encouraging the new industry into the area.

 

The existing portfolio as well as potential property investment requires strategic management and is a matter in which the whole Council should be involved.

 

The Committee should meet on a quarterly basis, if only to update the status of on-going matters.  If there is any urgent matter a separate Committee meeting should be called.

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Greg Meyers, Director Environment and Planning

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.15    SF443              021008         Nambucca Shire Structure Plan Reference Group - Recommendation for its Continuation

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Greg Meyers, Director Environment and Planning         

 

Summary:

 

The Shirewide Reference Group was established in 2005 to assist Council and the Consultants in the preparation of the Shirewide Structure Plan and review of Development Control Plan 3 – Residential Development.

 

Membership covered a broad cross section of the community over the whole shire with the total number of members in addition to the Mayor, all Councillors and Council staff is 14.

 

At the conclusion of the Structure Plan in September 2007, Council resolved to maintain the Reference Group until the Rural-Residential Land Release Strategy and the Urban Design Strategies for the 20m tall precincts and the Bowra-Ridge Street intersection in Nambucca Heads, were completed.

 

Both of these projects are nearing completion and it is recommended that the Shirewide Reference Group be retained until both projects are completed and at which time the Reference Group shall cease.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1          That Council maintain the Shirewide Reference Group until both the Rural-Residential Land Release Strategy and the Urban Design Strategy for the 20m tall precincts and the Bowra-Ridge Street intersection in Nambucca Heads are completed.

 

2          That Council endorse the following membership to the Reference Group:

 

Mr R Simmons, Mr Jim Brazel, Mr J Schmidt, Mr N Ledger, Ms Carmel Hong, Mr K Winton, Mr A Field, Mr Graham Jones, Mrs J Reed, Mr Barry Kerr, Ms M Ward, Mr J Cameron, Mr M Graham, Mr James Hallam

 

3          That following the adoption of both Strategies by Council, the Reference Group members be thanked for their contribution and input and the Reference Group be dissolved as a Council Committee.

 

4          That all interested Councillors in addition to the Mayor be appointed to the Shirewide Reference Group.

 

5          That the Mayor be the Chairperson of the Shirewide Reference Group.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

Council could choose to disband the Reference Group as both Draft Strategies have been presented to them prior to or during the exhibition period.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The Shirewide Reference Group was established in 2005 to assist Council and the Consultants in the preparation of the Shirewide Structure Plan and review of Development Control Plan 3 – Residential Development.

 

Membership was invited from key stakeholder groups and interested community representatives over the whole shire with 39 nominations being originally received. Council appointed a total of 14 representatives.

 

At the conclusion of the Structure Plan in September 2007, Council resolved to maintain the Reference Group until the Rural-Residential Land Release Strategy and the Urban Design Strategies for the 20m tall precincts and the Bowra-Ridge Street intersection in Nambucca Heads, were completed.

 

Both Draft documents were presented to the Reference Group prior to Council endorsing the Drafts for public exhibition. Both of these projects are now nearing completion and it is recommended both final Drafts are presented to the Shirewide Reference Group before final presentation to Council for endorsement. Once the Strategies have been endorsed the Reference Group should be thanked for their contribution and input and be disbanded.

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.16    SF842              021008         Nambucca Shire Traffic Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

In order to deal with the large number and range of traffic matters effectively, the RTA has delegated certain aspects of the control of traffic on local roads to this Committee.  In the sense that Council does not control or determine recommendations from the Traffic Committee it is not a Committee of Council but rather a Committee which provides the RTA with local advice in relation to a range of matters.

 

The Committee is composed of four formal members each with one vote.  These four members are a representative from Council, the NSW Police and the RTA and the Local State Member of Parliament or his/her nominee.  Council's representative and Chairperson is the Director Engineering Services.  A Councillor represented the Local Member during the last twelve months.

 

Councillor Duffus has been the representative for the Hon. Andrew Stoner MP.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That one Councillor be nominated to represent Mr Andrew Stoner MP, Member for Oxley, and that this nomination be referred to Mr Stoner for his endorsement.

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.17    SF842              021008         Plant Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

This Committee was reformed at Council's meeting held on 7 November 1996 to look at purchasing and maintenance of Council machinery.

 

The Committee includes four Councillors plus the Mayor, together with the Manager Civil Works, Manager Financial Services and Plant Supervisor.

 

In 2007 the elected members were Cr Moran, Cr Hoban, Cr Duffus, and Cr Ainsworth with the Mayor ex officio.

 

The Committee last met in March 2007.  Some of the matters which the Plant Committee have dealt have instead been considered at Works Inspection and Council meetings.  Given the infrequency of meetings and the difficulties in separating Councillors’ strategic role from the operational matters traditionally considered by the Plant Committee it is recommended that Council not appoint a Plant Committee.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council not appoint a Plant Committee.

 

 

 

OPTIONS

 

The previous arrangement has been as follows:

 

1        That four Councillors be appointed to the Plant Committee with the Mayor ex officio

2        That three staff be appointed to the Plant Committee being the Plant Supervisor, the Manager Civil Works and the Director Operations and Technical Services.

3        That the Committee, both Councillors and staff representatives, should operate via consensus.  If consensus cannot be reached then this is to be indicated in the report to Council together with the reasons.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The Plant Committee last met on 7 March 2007.  The recommendations arising from that meeting were the purchase of the Paveline road patching machine; that the plant replacement schedule for 2007/2008 be presented to estimates meeting with sufficient time being allocated for discussion; that the Manager Civil Works be authorized to change vehicles earlier than 100,000 km if the staff members agree to change to a more fuel efficient/smaller vehicle; that the replacements schedule be noted and that the Committee receive regular reports on the progress of operation of the Paveline machine.

 

The existence of a Plant Committee with Councillors forming a majority has and will continue to present difficulties vis a vis the Councillors’ role in providing strategic direction and the operational responsibilities of the General Manager and management staff.  The Council should consider the plant replacement schedule and any policies in relation to plant at a Works Inspection Committee.  The type of grader, truck or road patching machine to be acquired within that budget should be a matter for the responsible staff, principally the Manager Civil Works and Director Engineering Services.

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.18    SF842              021008         Vehicular Access to Beaches Committee
Appointment of Council Operational Committees

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

Council has a policy of permitting authorised and licensed motor vehicles to gain access to designated beach areas in the Shire and the Committee meets, often in conjunction with Kempsey Shire and Port Macquarie-Hastings Shire Councils in order to address to workings of the policy including standard of access, signage, repairs to access, fees etc.

 

The philosophy is to enable residents and visitors to participate in beach fishing in remote beach locations.

 

The Committee comprises three Councillor representatives, one of whom is the Mayor as ex officio, appropriate Council officers and Honorary Rangers.

 

For the past year the elected members were Councillors Ainsworth, Duffus and Moran with the Mayor ex officio.

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That three Councillors be appointed to the Vehicular Access to Beaches Committee with the Mayor as ex officio.

 

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

This Committee generally only meets twice a year to assess beach access points and any repairs which might be necessary.

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.19    SF842              021008         Water and Sewerage Projects Steering Committee

Summary:

 

The Committee comprises all Councillors, the General Manager, the Director Engineering Services; Manager Water and Sewerage; a representative of the Department of Water & Energy; and the Department of Commerce Project Manager for the Bowraville off stream storage.

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That all Councillors be appointed to the Water & Sewerage Projects Steering Committee.

 

 

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The Committee was constituted to provide oversight for major capital works projects.  In the context of the planning work underway for the off stream water storage at Bowraville and the upgrade of the Nambucca Heads sewage treatment plant, this Committee has important responsibilities.

Special Meeting of Ordinary Council

2 October 2008

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.20    SF842              021008         Works Inspection Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

The committee conducts on-site inspections the subject of requests or complaints from residents, builders and developers and takes the opportunity to receive delegations and to address financial matters and policy matters.

 

The Committee meets on the Wednesday before the second Council meeting of each month.

 

The Committee comprises all Councillors.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1        That the Works Inspection Committee be renamed the General Purpose Committee.

 

2        That all Councillors be appointed to the General Purpose Committee.

 

 

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

In the past there has not been universal agreement amongst Councillors as to the role of the Works Inspection Committee.  It has a traditional role of undertaking on-site inspections which have been the subject of requests, complaints, or are planning matters.

 

It has also served a useful function in providing a more informal opportunity to discuss major financial matters such as the budget review as well as policy issues.

 

The Committee’s operations have not been exclusively concerned with works nor have they been exclusively concerned with inspections.  It has operated more as a general purpose committee and it suggested that the name of the Committee be changed to reflect this.
