What’s next for Wagga Wagga?

Following the release of Council’s 2014/15 Annual Report, the community is invited to special update on the past financial year in the Wagga Local Government Area (LGA).

“Snapshot 14/15: A year in focus” will reflect on what Council has achieved during the 2014/15 financial year, with a presentation of highlights from the Annual Report and the launch of the 2015 Community Survey results.

The unique event will be held on Wednesday 9 December in the Civic Centre forecourt at 6pm and will also feature a special bright yellow mystery guest known as “Charlie”.

Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Rod Kendall said 2014/15 had been a successful year for Council and the community can learn more at the Snapshot event.

“My fellow Councillor Greg Conkey noted that while Council gets out and about to the many villages in the region, we don’t have an event for all residents,” Cr Kendall said.

“Snapshot 14/15 gives everyone the chance to discover more about Council and what has been achieved in the past financial year, as well as the results of the Community Survey.”

Cr Kendall encouraged residents who can’t make it to Snapshot to take some time to read Council’s 2014/15 Annual Report “Strong Foundations, Sustainable Tomorrow”.

“The Annual Report is an important document that measures Council’s performance against the Community Strategic Plan and the Combined Delivery Program and Operational Plan,” he said.

“The theme for the 2014/15 report ‘Strong Foundations, Sustainable Tomorrow’ highlights how Council is planning for our community’s future to ensure Wagga continues to be a great place to live, work and play.”

In the past financial year, Council has successfully completed and delivered on 86 per cent of the services and projects published in the Combined Delivery Program and Operational Plan 2014/15.

Some of these projects include CCTV, upgrade of the Glenfield Road Animal Shelter, the demolition of Hampden Bridge and more than $15M in road rehabilitation works.
