Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded.

Possible outsourcing of operations and potential ownership of Council's Community Water and Wastewater Management Systems.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT STAGE 1:

The Council owns and operates two small community waste water management systems and two small water management systems at Riverglen and Woodlane with 104 and 59 connections respectively.

Council is exploring the possible outsourcing of the operations and potentially the ownership of the plants and sought community feedback between 16 July and 6 August 2018 via public meetings and a shot questionnaire.

UPDATE:

Following the feedback received through the consultation process and public meetings at Riverglen and Mypolonga (as mentioned below), plus a meeting with the owners of Riverglen Marina, a report was presented to Council.

On 10 September 2018, Council resolved to authorise the CEO to request tenders from potential operators.
It is important to note that this step does not commit Council to accepting any of the tender submissions.
If satisfactory tenders are received a report will be returned to Council to seek approval to contract with the third party specialist operator prior to acceptance.
During this process Council administration will address the feedback received from the community to ensure users of the systems are not unfairly disadvantaged.

The timeline for this process has not yet been determined but it is anticipated the outcome of request for tender will not be know until 2019.
