There doesn’t appear to be a lot of interest from local residents as to how Cobar Shire Council plans to spend its revenue from ratepayers and grant funding next year, if the attendance at last week’s public meeting is anything to go by.
The meeting to outline council’s budget, it’s annual operating plan, proposed fees and charges and council’s disability action plan, only had two members of the public in attendance who joined four councillors and three staff members to hear what council’s future plans are.
Acting general manager Stephen Taylor provided an outline at the meeting of council’s future plans and he and his staff answered questions from the public and councillors on a range of matters.
Mr Taylor said it was disappointing there were not more people in attendance, especially as council had hoped to gain ideas for future budgets.
He does however hope that council will receive more feedback on the budget and annual operational plan and that ideas for projects to enhance the community will be submitted to council by the end of the month.
