MidCoast Council meets on Wednesday, May 16 to consider the draft delivery program and operational plan, prior to it going on public exhibition on Thursday, May 17.
This extraordinary meeting will be held at the Taree office at 10am.
Council explains that the delivery program outlines the focus areas for the council during its term of office, 2018-2021, while the operational plan outlines its one-year actions for 2018-19. It includes fees and charges, including water and sewerage, and budget documents.
Both will go on public exhibition from May 17 to June 13. Following feedback from the public final changes will be made to the document prior to it being presented to council for adoption on June 27.
The program and plan will take effect from July 1.
The overarching plan that forms the framework for the delivery program and operational plan is the MidCoast Community Strategic Plan MidCoast 2030 - Shared Vision, Shared Responsibility. This document reflects the community’s vision for the MidCoast region, its values, objectives and strategies to achieve them.
The strategic plan was recently adopted by council following extensive community consultation.
