Administrator’s Minutes

10.   Vale Sylvia Pearl Cable:  1 April 1917 – 28 May 2016

It is with regret that I advise of the recent sad passing of Sylvia Pearl Cable.

 

Sylvia’s husband, Horace Cable, served as a Councillor for the former Hurstville City Council from 1956 – 1971 and as Mayor in 1966.  During this period of her husband’s service, Sylvia became the first female Alderman and Horace and Sylvia became the first husband and wife team to serve on Hurstville City Council.

 

Sylvia was known for her love of weak cappuccinos and elegant hairstyles.  Deeply committed to her family, she would travel any distance to see her loved ones and even visited Stockholm, Sweden at the age of 93 to see her grandson marry.

 

Amongst her many interests, Sylvia was a devoted member of the Hurstville community.  She was passionate, devoted and fought hard for what she believed in.

 

A minute’s silence was observed in memory of Vale Sylvia Pearl Cable.

 

Minute No. 74

Resolved

1.      That Council express thanks and appreciation to Sylvia Pearl Cable for her contribution to the Hurstville community.

 

2.      That condolences be extended to her family and loved ones.

(Moved by Administrator, Mr J Rayner)

 

11.  Open & Transparent Decision Making

During the period that Georges River Council is under Administration, it is my aim and that of the General Manager, to ensure the Council operates in an open and transparent manner.

This is consistent with the Council’s Charter under Section 10 of the Local Government Act which requires a Council to:

•        exercise its functions in a manner that is consistent with and promotes social justice principles of equity, access, participation and rights;

•        to facilitate the involvement of Councillors, members of the public, users of facilities and services and Council staff in the development, improvement and co-ordination of local government.

 

 

Open decision making assists in gaining the confidence of the community in Council’s:

•        property dealings

•        planning and development decisions

•        investment and expenditure of public money

•        policy development

 

The Local Government Act clearly and rightly specifies that a number of matters may be discussed and decisions made in closed session.  These include (in summary):

•        personnel matters

•        personal hardship of a resident or ratepayer

•        commercial advantage

•        commercial information

•        maintenance of law

•        security of the Council, Councillors or Staff

•        advice concerning litigation

 

The Act limits the closure of Council meetings to circumstances where “it is necessary to preserve the relevant confidentiality, privilege or security” and in other cases the Council must be satisfied that discussion in any open meeting would be contrary to the public interest.

 

Already a number of actions have occurred to make Georges River Council’s decisions open and transparent:

•        introduction of the Independent Hearing & Assessment Panel

•        ensuring the report, “Advice on Court Proceedings”, is in open session

•        DA processing times

•        VPA Policy

•        Road Closure & Sale, Minute No. 61, Council Meeting 4th July 2016

 

A number of the reports that come before the Council contain valuations, details of negotiations, prices submitted by tender and the like.

 

In the future, the nature of the transaction covered by the report will be reported in open session.  This will allow for the background and any relevant history of the matter to be provided and will also enable a summary of relevant matters taken into consideration during decision making to be tabled.

 

A supplementary report which will contain restricted/confidential information will be retained in closed session meeting the requirements of the Local Government Act.  For example, this evening’s Agenda contains reports in both the open and closed sections of the meeting:

•        CCL053-16 and CON012-16  Tender for the Construction of the Upper and Lower Gannons Park Shared Pathway

 

•        CCL054-16 and CON013-16  Hurstville Golf Course Operational Management Services

 

•        CCL055-16 and CON014-16  Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre Operational Management Services

 

•        CCL056-16 and CON015-16  Ken Rosewall Tennis Centre Operational Management Services

 

I want to now refer to 2 reports which were previously considered in closed session:

•        COW055-14 – Property Matter – River Road, Oatley (2 July, 2014)

•        COW098-14 – Property Matter – River Road, Oatley (19 November, 2014)

Considering the community interest associated with the matters addressed, I am proposing that these reports from the former Hurstville City Council, be made public.

The General Manager has already relayed to staff the approach to be taken with future reports and I am pleased that she strongly supports and promotes the open and transparent process, which I aim to have as a feature of the decision making in this organisation.

Although we are changing the approach to Council’s decision making, the requirements of the Government Information (Public Access) Act, 2009 still apply to some requests for information from the public.

 

Minute No. 75

Resolved

1.      That the approach to open and transparent decision making be noted.

 

2.      That the report from the former Hurstville City Council dated 2 July, 2014 (COW055-14 Property Matter – River Road, Oatley) be considered as an open report, other than Appendix 2 which, in accordance with Section 10A(2)(c) of the Local Government Act, is to remain in closed session as it is considered the matters and information would, if disclosed, confer a commercial advantage on a person with whom the Council is conducting (or proposes) to conduct business.

 

3.      THAT the report from the former Hurstville City Council dated 19 November, 2014 (COW098-14 Property Matter – River Road, Oatley) be considered as an open report, other than Appendix 2 which, in accordance with Section 10A(2)(c) of the Local Government Act, is to remain in closed session as it is considered the matters and information would, if disclosed, confer a commercial advantage on a person with whom the Council is conducting (or proposes) to conduct business.

(Moved by Administrator, Mr J Rayner)

 

 

12.  Schedule of Meeting Dates and Venues

The Georges River Council meetings are held at 6.00pm on the first Monday of each month and on the second Monday of the month when the first Monday is a public holiday.

 

The details of the locations for the meetings are provided on the Meeting Notice which is published with the Agenda, three (3) working days prior to the meeting date.

 

The proposed venues for Council meetings for the remainder of 2016 are:

•        Kogarah Bay Ward – Monday, 5 September 2016 – 6.00pm – Kogarah Civic Centre, 2 Belgrave Street, Kogarah

•        Peakhurst Ward – Monday, 10 October 2016 – 6.00pm – Club Rivers, 32-34 Littleton Street, Riverwood

•        Hurstville Ward – Monday, 5 December 2016 – 6.00pm – Hurstville Civic Centre, cnr MacMahon and Dora Streets, Hurstville

 

Minute No. 76

Resolved that the proposed schedule of venues for Council meetings for the remainder of 2016, as listed in the report, be approved.

 

 

 

 

 

13.  Implementation Advisory Committee (IAC)

Progress is being made on determining former Councillor representation on the Implementation Advisory Committee and other Advisory Committees.

 

Council has adopted a Charter for the Implementation Advisory Committee and has decided on other Advisory Committees.

 

Determining a fair rate of remuneration for former Councillors is important.  It must be fair to former Councillors and acceptable in and justifiable to the community.

 

Currently the Charter provides:

 

“Remuneration of Members

Members of the GRIAC will be remunerated at a rate which complies with rates established by the Local Government Remuneration Tribunal.  Out of pocket expenses of Committee members will be reimbursed.”

 

At the meeting of Council on 4 July 2016, in establishing Advisory Committees which included community representatives, it was resolved:

 

“THAT the Administrator be authorised to set attendance fees for former Councillors should they participate in Advisory Committees and/or undertake roles on behalf of Council”.

 

It is recognised that other merged councils are paying their former Councillors an allowance consistent with the fees set by the Local Government Remuneration Tribunal.  The allowance for each category of Council has a minimum and maximum range and applies to Councillors who have responsibilities and accountabilities under the Local Government Act.

 

Another suggestion is that a meeting attendance fee be paid to former Councillors participating in both the Implementation Advisory Committee and Advisory Committees which include community representatives.  This is consistent with payments to members of Council’s Independent Hearing & Assessment Panel and previously when Councillors represented on the Joint Regional Planning Panel.

 

To provide some flexibility in setting fees for former Councillors on the Implementation Advisory Committee and in establishing payments which are fair and reasonable and which can be justified to the community, it is proposed to vary the current clause in the IAC Charter.

 

Minute No. 77

Resolved

1.      THAT the report be received and noted.

2.      THAT the Charter for the Implementation Advisory Committee be amended to read:

 

“REMUNERATION OF MEMBERS

Members of the GRIAC will be remunerated as determined by the Administrator, taking into consideration:

 

•   the range of fees established by the Local Government Remuneration Tribunal.

•   equity with attendance fees paid to former Councillors who may participate in other Advisory Committees.

•   community perceptions of what would be considered a fair and equitable payment.

•   other factors which are pertinent to the matter.”
