Community Leadership and Collaboration
Objective: We are informed and involved in decision making
There is a risk that the cost to carry out these projects could be more than was originally estimated. Therefore, Council would need additional funds to complete the works. However, some contingency was built into all of the estimates to reduce this risk
The Office of Environment and Heritage have been heavily consulted throughout the process of planning and executing these projects.
NSW Emergency Management is the responsible funding body and receives quarterly status update reports.
NSW State Emergency Services and Bureau of Meteorology are consulted when required.
Each of these projects is managed using a project steering group made up of members from different areas of Council as per Councils project management methodology.
Council officers in various directorates are members of the project steering committees for each project.
