It’s always refreshing to welcome in a new year. It provides us with the opportunity to recharge our batteries and be ready for the year ahead. The year 2016 has come and gone. It was a busy year of Council and Councillors, and this year will be no different especially with local government elections in August. During 2017, your Council will remain focussed on our commitment to listening and representing the community’s best interests - and building on the strong performance of 2016. We will be actively focussed on maintaining a high level of service delivery, developing many community assets, continuing our development of the ten-year waste management strategy and ensuring that our area remains the best place to live in the NT.
