Council seeks NDRRA funding to restore roads

Remote Indigenous communities in Central Australia are likely to remain isolated and subject to frequent road closures unless urgent funding is received to reinstate flood damaged roads, Central Desert Regional Councillors were advised at a recent Council meeting.

The Council manages over 1,700km of roads within the Central Desert Region including roads that provide the primary access to remote Indigenous communities. These roads were badly affected by the December 2016 and January 2017 rain event.

National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs annually from 27 May – 3 June. These dates mark two milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey: The 1967 referendum and the historic Mabo decision, respectively.  

This year, 2017, represents two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey – 50 years since the 1967 referendum, and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision. As we commemorate these significant milestones, we ask all Australians to be a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey.

Fire Season Warning

With record rain falls across the Region in December and January, grass levels are at a critical point.  Council is currently allocating all available resources to slashing, mowing and grading fire breaks, however it is predicting that a problematic fire season will follow in a few months when vegetation dries out. 
Residents and landowners are asked to ensure that grass is kept low around houses and other premises on their lots, and that activities that may start a fire are carefully controlled.

Intergenerational Service Delivery

In recent strategic planning sessions, the Community Services Directorate has been exploring ways to provide culturally safe services that recognise the benefits of intergenerational interaction to promote community wellbeing. 
 
The premise is that an integrated intergenerational model is the most effective way of delivering better “cradle to grave” services.  It is envisaged that an integrated model will be community led and could service multiple client groups such as, children, youth, and the aged.

Heavy Rains Impact Entire Council

Many of Council's services were put under strain and/or interrupted as a result of the heavy rain event that occurred in December and January across the entire region.
