Recently the NSW Government has outlined its proposed reform agenda for NSW Local Government.
It has undertaken this through a program titled ‘Fit for the Future’ which is a comprehensive response to the recommendations of the NSW Independent Local Government Review Panel. The criteria to be considered Fit for the Future were released as part of a self assessment tool which included seven (7) key financial indicators with benchmarks that must be achieved by 2019/20. Clarence Valley Council currently does not meet five of the seven key financial indicators benchmarks listed in the self assessment tool. Of the five benchmarks not met, three related to asset management.
Council's submission outlining how it will become ‘Fit for the Future’; how it will become sustainable, provide effective and efficient services and have the scale and capacity needed to meet the needs of communities and partner with the State was submitted to IPART on 30 June 2015.
