3.       Communication from the Chairman

 

3.1      Passing – Mrs Giovanna Ranalli

 

I would like to acknowledge the recent passing of Mrs Giovanna Ranalli and extend our sincere condolences to Mr Nic Ranalli and family.

Mrs Ranalli served as a member of the Abruzzese Association Committee for more than 20 years alongside her husband Nicola who was president for many years and is a life member.

Mrs Ranalli was very active during her time on the committee. She used to sew costumes for the young dancers and cooked at all the Association’s dinner dances.

She was a tireless supporter of the city’s relationship with L’Aquila and a proud member of the Hobart Italian Community.

On behalf of the Council, I extend our thoughts and prayers to Nicola and his family at this sad time.

 

 

4.       Notification of Council Workshops

In accordance with the requirements of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, the General Manager reports that the following workshop has been conducted since the last ordinary meeting of the Council.

 

Date:            30 January 2019

Purpose:     Review of Capital City Strategic Plan


 

 

5.       Public Question Time

 

5.1      Mr Ben Lohberger

            File Ref: 13-1-10

 

Mr Ben Lohberger put the following question and was provided with the corresponding response by the Lord Mayor on behalf of the Council.

Question:

The Central Avenue pedestrian bridge (adjacent to New Town High School) was damaged in the May floods last year, and it remains closed nine months later. Despite being closed, the bridge is still being used by people who simply climb around the barriers.

 

Can Council advise when this bridge is going to be repaired, and whether Council has any liability if someone is injured while crossing the bridge in its current state?

Response:

The damage to the bridge that crosses the New Town Rivulet adjacent to the grounds of the New Town High School as a result of the May 2018 storm event requires it replacement, which is why the bridge has been closed to users with welded barriers and onsite notices.

 

The City is in the process of securing and assessing geotechnical, engineering and stormwater modelling advice for the site to assist in the construction design for a new bridge. The precise timing for construction of a new bridge will be subject to what is required for these works.

 

Please note however that the City is mindful of the public convenience of this bridge and is working towards its replacement, however there are complexities that unfortunately will take time to work through.

 

In respect to any public liability issues should members of the public choose to disregard measures in place to advise and prevent access across the bridge, they do so at their own risk.

 

Thank you for taking the time to raise this matter here at this meeting of the Council.
