2.       LGP017     Accountable Forms Policy (members and CEO)

 

3.       LGP020     Gifts and Benefits Policy (CEO)

·    This policy has the nominal amount of $100 to match policy LGP006 Gifts and Benefits Policy (Council Members).

·    Minutes from 25 May 2021 Council agreed that the nominal value of $100 to be declared.

·    Prior to policies going before Council or CEO, all policies are sent to the department for final review to ensure we are meeting the Local Government Act 2019.

On reviewing policy LGP020 Gifts and Benefits Policy (CEO) the Manager of Legislation and Policy Projects Dept. of Chief Ministers Office replied

“in my opinion $100 is quite a high nominal value for gifts and I recommend that you consider a lower amount for these two policies”.

(I submitted two policies for review, LGP020 and HR008 both are Gifts and Benefits Policies).

·    Does Council want to review and make a resolution to apply to all the Gifts and Benefits Policy, on the nominal amount?

Victoria Daly REGIONAL Council

Ordinary Council OF 28 January 2022

 Report for Agenda Item No 6

 

Community Saftey & Wellbeing Quarterly Report

Prepared by Loretta Rima, A/Manager of Community Safety & Wellbeing       

 

 

Purpose

To provide Council with an update on the Programs under Community Safety & Wellbeing Programs

 

 

Sport and Recreation

Timber Creek/Bulla: Advertising continues for an S&R Officer.  The position is for 0.53FTE or 20 hours per week.  There is no vehicle provided and Timber Creek and Bulla are approximately 60km apart.

 

Nauiyu: – Program run by GRAC

 

Pine Creek: The S&R Team Leader has been stood down without pay due to noncompliance with Covid order CHO Direction 55 – Directions for mandatory vaccination of workers to attend the workplace.  The S&R Officer resigned before Christmas.  Helen Reed, Library Officer, is running the S&R Program 3 days a week over the school holidays with support from Community Night Patrol.

 

Kalkarindji: There has been no S&R Program in Kalkarindji for some time due to lack of applications for the vacant position.  Recently, an outstanding Team Leader applicant was identified through Scout Talent and is scheduled to commence work late February/early March.  He will be bringing his family with him (partner and a new born).  Hopefully his enthusiasm will be infectious and encourage a local community member to apply for the S&R Officer position.  There is a vehicle provided and it is currently just over 130,000km.

 

Yarralin:  There has been no S&R Program run in Yarralin for approximately two + (2) years.  The position is for 0.78 or 30hrs per week.  Advertising through CDP continues.

 

 

Community Night Patrol

All vehicles have been fitted with GPS tracking devices that monitor when the vehicle is turned on/off, location, speed, etc.  It is a very useful tool. Earlier this month Industry Skills Advisory Council NT confirmed that Nationally Accredited qualification is now available on training.gov.au CHC35021 Certificate III in Community Safety Services.  However, this does not mean it is yet available as the RTO’s have to design how the training will be delivered.  We currently have twelve (12) CNP staff who require this training.

 

Kalkarindji:  Team Leader has been on Long Service and Sick Leave but is still providing timesheets and statistics.  There are 2 Officers and we are requesting an additional Officer as the area covered by the Program requires 3 Officers.  Attendance reliability of Officers remains a challenge.

 

Nauiyu:  Initially Nauiyu worked Monday to Saturday inclusive and had an additional allocation of staff to cover the extra day.  However, they are no longer working the Saturday and do not require 4 Officers.  They currently have a full complement of staff. 

 

Yarralin:  Advertising for a Team Leader is in place.  There are currently 3 Officers.  Attendance reliability of some Officers remains a challenge.

 

Pigeon Hole:  There are 2 Officers at Pigeon Hole and 1 casual Officer.  Lack of mobile coverage is a challenge especially when the Fax is out or order.  I would like to acknowledge Steve who manages the Nitjpurru Store.  He is very supportive and will Fax or email documents when his help is requested.

 

Timber Creek:  Timber Creek is advertising for a third Officer.  They will then have a full complement of staff.

 

Bulla:  There is a full complement of staff and the CNP vehicle is being garaged in community.  The team travels to Timber Creek each Thursday to attend scheduled meetings.  There have been several cases of Covid in Bulla.

 

Pine Creek:  A new, highly qualified and experienced, Team Leader has been appointed and Pine Creek now has a full complement of staff.

 

 

Remote School Attendance Strategy

Yarralin:  The RSAS Supervisor and his family have been in quarantine at Howard Springs after 4 members of the family tested positive with Covid.  He reported that the accommodation and food were ‘really good’ and all of them were happy there. Wesley is currently working on the Community Attendance Plan.  School attendance for Term 4 2021 was 74%.  This year 2022, the “RSAS” brand is no longer required.  Communities may use whatever name and branding that is appealing to their communities, families and students.  NIAA will still utilise “RSAS” for program administration and reporting purposes.  Wesley is currently liaising with stakeholders to come up with an appropriate name.  I believe he would like to see the name in Language with an English translation under it.

 

Kalkarindji:  The VDRC contract for the RSAS Program in Kalkarindji finished 31 December 2021.  The Program was transferred over to Gurindji Aboriginal Corporation.  The Kalkarindji School Principal contacted me in late December and advised that she had been tasked with getting the Program up and running for GAC.  She requested help with documentation.  We fully cooperated and provided everything required e.g. job descriptions, attendance plans, and governance structure.  A request to NIAA for VDRC to retain the bus for use at Yarralin was rejected (Official email provided) and NIAA has requested the bus be transferred to Gurindji Aboriginal Corporation. School attendance for Term 4 2021 was 51%, an increase of 4.5% from Term 1.

 

 

TEABBA Top End Aboriginal Bush Broadcasting Association

Nauiyu:  The Broadcasting Officer in Nauiyu is highly skilled and provides a reliable program for the community.

 

Kalkarindji:  The Broadcasting Officer attended a training course in Darwin and further remote training will be held in the near future.

 

Yarralin:  There has been no interest shown in this position.

 

Policy implications

 

Budget implications

 

Risk statement

 

Council officer conflict of interest declaration

Visitors

 

Matthew Hamilton – PFES

Shane Felthan – Projects Manager, Gurindji Corp

 

Events and Activities

 

Sadly our Australia Day celebration has been cancelled.  6 positive COVID cases have been recorded in Lajamanu (as at 18 January, 2022) and we know quite a number of our community members are attending ‘Sorry’ business there.  A large communal gathering would not be in the best interests of our community members.

 

Community Issues

 

There have been numerous break-ins over the Xmas and New Year period; including the home of our C.O.M. Rob Drew. Damage has been repaired. Thankfully things appear to have quietened down at the time of writing.

 

Staffing

 

Rob Drew C.O.M. is on a well-earned holiday from 21 December, 2021 to February 1, 2022.  Deb Bowd is Acting C.O.M. during this time.

 

Ray Marks, Council Operations Team Leader voluntarily resigned and left the employment of Council on December 29, 2021.  The position has been re-advertised with Scout and appears on the Council Website in the careers section. 

 

Two casual cleaners, Shannette Victor and Dennis King have been employed and commenced with Council, Monday 17th January, 2022.  They will be responsible for the weekly cleaning of council offices, public toilets, the airport toilets/waiting area, along with the cleaning of the VOQ’s and Court room as required.

 

Council are pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Shoko to the position of Sport and Recreation Team Leader.  Simon has a Bachelor Degree in Sports Science and extensive experience working in remote communities and third world countries.  Simon, along with his partner Angie and by then, 4 week old baby, arrive at the end of February, 2022.

 


Core / Infrastructure Services

 

 

Local Emergency Management

Several ‘Teams’ meetings took place and are ongoing as necessary with regard to Covid-19.  Safety measures were implemented in-line with protocols when a positive case was confirmed in Kalkarindji and continued throughout and during lockdown and lockout.  The uptake in vaccinations is very encouraging and the wearing of masks indoors is currently mandatory.

 

There were 3 ‘Teams’ meetings with relation to potential flooding; discussing evacuations, muster points and resources on the ground.  Mother Nature decided each time to head further west out to Kununurra, thus we are still waiting for the first decent ‘wet season’ rains to arrive.

 

Maintenance Building and Fixed Assets

The front façade of the council offices are in need of repair and will be refurbished and repainted in February 2022.

 

Animal Welfare & Control

Dr Alex Burleigh from NT Vet Services visited December 6th – 10th 2021 to provide the ACVS Animal Health and Control Program. This program was approved and funded by the Local Authority.  A detailed report of the visit is attached.

 

Waste Management & Litter Control

Council rolled out new, replacement bins for each property in Kalkarindji and Daguragu.  The new bins were very well received by locals. 

 

Plant and Equipment

Gurindji Corp have taken over the RSAS program from January 1st, 2022.  The RSAS bus has been thoroughly cleaned and will be handed over to Gurindji. This will be facilitated by NIAA.

 

Community Services

 

          Community Broadcasting

TEABBA (RIBS) will receive a new software and hardware upgrade on Tuesday February 1st, 2022.    This will enable remote access in the future to troubleshoot any issues and a far more sophisticated set-up.  Leo (Boydy) will attend online training over 3 days, week commencing January 24th, 2022.

Local Emergency Management

 

Up to Date.

 

Maintenance Buildings And Fixed Assets

 

After a severe storm, there was some damage to the ceiling of the Council Operations Centre with a roof leak occurring.

 

The leak is suspected to be caused by the Extraction Unit on the Roof allowing rain to enter when storms are so severe the rain comes in sideways. The Extraction Unit has been covered and the ceiling will be observed over the next storm to see if any further leaks develop.

 

The guttering at the MRC is still causing concern and a grant will need to be sought to repair or replace the guttering which is currently being put under a lot of strain from holding water during and after storms.

 

A quote from a reputable company is being sought for this work.

A grant will be required to complete the work.

 

Animal Welfare and Control

 

No current issues with feral cats or dogs.

 

Local Road Maintenance

 

Road Maintenance Grades were due to take place in early December on Umbrawarra Rd, Cemetery Road, Green Valley Road and Copperfield Dam Road but due to the inclement weather access for machinery has been hampered. The work will be completed when the weather has improved to allow the access to dry out enough for machinery.

 

All other roads are assessed for damage/potholes and are managed/repaired on a regular basis.

 

       Waste Management and Litter Control

 

Ongoing maintenance to waste management facility. Soil is now at a critical level.

 

Upgrades to the waste facility have begun with drainage being cut to divert fresh water from entering the leachate ponds.  Ryan Dundas has been several times to continue with the maintenance work required.

 

Plant and Equipment

 

        All Plant and Vehicles are due for servicing.

·    As Nauiyu is under 80% vaccination rate for 5 years and over DIPL arranged for signs to be erected at Nauiyu on 23 December advising the area was for residents and essential workers only.  This has resulted in greatly reduced visitation to the community.

·    The Nauiyu Store managers, here since October 2020, left community on 31/12/2021 with a relief manager currently in place.  The store was unlawfully entered on 9 January.

Core/Infrastructure Services

 

Public and Street Lighting

 

·    A street light audit was conducted and information passed to the electrical installer of lights to investigate why a number of new LED’s are not working properly.  The parts were sent back to place of manufacture in China and it was discovered that tiny ants had gotten into the capacitor which caused a short circuit.  The specified sensor for outback conditions will now be upgraded by the supplier which should fix this problem. 

The supplier is providing product support with improved sensors.  Further discussion to take place with contractor regarding this upgrade.

·    COM vehicle which required repairs in Katherine was returned to Nauiyu on 8 December.  Further minor repair is still required, this being observed after initial repair was completed.

·    Our mechanic continues to maintain our plant and vehicles as required which goes a long way towards the longevity of our aging machines.

·    Mid-apron culvert contractor has advised this project has been re-scheduled to around April 2022.
