Successes and challenges in annual report

October 05, 2017

GANNAWARRA Shire Council’s 2016-17 Annual Report is now available to the public.

Chief executive Eric Braslis said the report highlighted the past year’s success stories, while acknowledging the challenges that faced the shire in coming years.

‘‘Council has delivered a number of fantastic projects and services to the community over the past 12 months, including the Koondrook Wharf, Wells Bridge and an upgrade to the Sir John Gorton Library,’’ he said.

‘‘It has been another year of significant achievements which has seen the Gannawarra Shire further develop as a vibrant, connected and strong community.

‘‘We have also seen the introduction of a new council and the adoption of a new Council Plan which sets the framework for the next four years.

‘‘While we highlight the positives, such as our waterways, environment and community partnerships, we also acknowledge the many challenges we face moving forward in the current environment of financial constraint.’’

In addition to providing a statement of council’s financial position at June 30, the document reports on council’s operations and performance for the 2016-17 year.

The report is available at the Kerang and Cohuna council offices or from council’s website and electronic copies can be emailed on request.
