3.       Communication from the Chairman

 

3.1      Meeting Procedures Clarification – Points of Order

 

The Lord Mayor reminded elected members of her communication of 13 June 2019 which clarified some of the provisions in the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015 specifically on Points of Order and in what circumstances these can be raised.

 

 

3.2      Climate Change Protesters

 

The Lord Mayor advised the Chamber that the agenda contained some items that may see some members of the public attending to protest.

These members of the public have a right to protest and a right to attend Council meetings, provided they do not disrupt the conduct of the meeting.

She asked that people be respectful and not disrupt the meeting but advised that in circumstances where a disruption occurs, members of the public may be required to leave the chamber.

4.       Notification of Council Workshops

In accordance with the requirements of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, the General Manager reports that no Council workshops have been conducted since the last ordinary meeting of the Council.

 

5.       Public Question Time

5.1      Mr Ben Lohberger - Elected Member Code of Conduct

 

Mr Lohberger put the following question and was provided with the corresponding response from the Lord Mayor.

Question:

 

In most workplaces any person who invaded a colleague's personal space and then shouted in their colleagues' face would be disciplined, or sacked, for bullying.

Does the HCC consider it acceptable behaviour for one Aldermen to approach another and shout in their face from a very close distance?

Is there a standard of behaviour for Aldermen, regarding the way they address each other and the Lord Mayor?

What steps does the HCC have in place to punish Aldermen who bully their colleagues? And, are the Aldermen themselves required to remain silent while one of their colleagues bullies another, or is that a personal decision?

Response:

 

Under the Local Government Act 1993, the Council must adopt a model code of conduct.  One of the matters provided for in the model code of conduct is the appropriate or inappropriate behaviour of an elected member in their relationships with the community, other councillors and council employees. 

 

The City of Hobart’s Elected Member Code of Conduct is available on the City’s website and a link is included in the written response to you.  It expressly states that an elected member must not bully or harass any person.

 

A person may make a complaint against a councillor in relation to the contravention by the councillor of the City’s Code of Conduct.  There are certain requirements in making a complaint and I would direct you to the General Manager if you have further queries in relation to that process.

 

Clearly, the behaviour and conduct of all elected members is something that the City of Hobart considers incredibly important and the Council’s elected members undertake regular training on this and other aspects of their roles.

 

Mr Lohberger then asked a supplementary question:

 

Item 23 on tonight's agenda discusses something called the 'City of Hobart and University of Tasmania Governance Forum'. What is this forum and is there any information available about it?

 

Answer:

Correspondence from UTAS and the officer’s report providing background information about this matter, is available from the Finance and Governance Committee agenda of 12 June 2019 on the City’s website.

 

6.       Petitions

 

No petitions were received.

 

 

7.       Consideration of Supplementary Items

Ref: Part 2, Regulation 8(6) of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015.

RECOMMENDATION

 

That the Council resolve to deal with any supplementary items not appearing on the agenda, as reported by the General Manager in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015.

 

No supplementary items were received.

 

 

 

 

8.       Indications of Pecuniary and Conflicts of Interest

Ref: Part 2, Regulation 8(7) of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015.

 

Aldermen are requested to indicate where they may have any pecuniary or conflicts of interest in respect to any matter appearing on the agenda, or any supplementary item to the agenda, which the committee has resolved to deal with.

 

OR

The following interest was indicated:

 

1.    Alderman Zucco – Item 10.1

 

 

Item 11 was then taken.

 

 Reports of Committees

 

Finance and Governance Committee

 

The Lord Mayor gave the following address to the Chamber:

“On behalf of the elected members of the City of Hobart, I have much pleasure in presenting to the community, the budget estimates for the 2019/20 year.

The City of Hobart services a population of more than 50,000 residents and almost 1.1 million tourists in the City each year.  Council has a responsibility to provide and maintain infrastructure required of a capital city and delivers over 300 services to the community.

Services range from essential services such as road maintenance, waste management, public health, planning and parking to programs and services that provide and maintaining parks and sporting facilities, public art and community programs for our youth and elderly community members.

We maintain 130 parks and reserves, including 48 playgrounds and 19 sports grounds.

The road and footpath network comprises:

·         More than 280 kilometres of sealed roads

·         More than 5 kilometres of unsealed roads

·         More than 425 kilometres of footpaths; and

·         67 bridges

We also own or manage more than 339 kilometres of stormwater mains, more than 550 stormwater assets such as kerb and gutter and 60 kilometres of rivulets and creeks.

Challenges

The budget we are delivering this year is financially responsible but has been prepared in the face of some significant challenges, including:

·      The Full Court Decision finding that Southern Cross Care does not have to pay general rates on its independent living units and ordering the Council to repay rates collected.  This decision has meant that approximately $400,000 will be lost rates income in 2019/20 and contributes approximately 0.5 per cent to the rates increase this year.

·      A six percent increase in the State Government Fire Levy of $650,000 is an additional impost that accounts for a further 0.53 per cent over and above the rate increase required to deliver Council services.

·      The expansion of programs and activities such as our grant program, increased service levels, waste reduction education, the expansion of smoking bans and other new initiatives.

·      The cost of maintaining a significant asset base, estimated at some $2 billion.

Rates

In 2019/20, a rate increase of 3.5 per cent is proposed to fund the increased cost of delivering services to meet community expectations. 

While the impact on individual ratepayers varies, the average residential ratepayer will experience a rate increase of $74 a year for Council operations.

Waste management service charges remain at last year’s level of $250 for residential properties and $500 for non-residential properties.

 

The kerbside green waste collection service for some residents remains unchanged from last year, incurring a service charge of $50 per year.

The Landfill Rehabilitation Service Charge also remains unchanged at $10 for residential properties and $20 for non-residential properties.

Fire Service Levy

In addition to rates, the Council is required to collect revenue on behalf of the Tasmanian Government to fund fire services.

This year, the contribution has increased by 6 per cent with Hobart City ratepayers contributing $11.39 million to this fund.  The average residential ratepayer will experience an increase of $11 on last year.

This is not a charge by the Council but money which is collected and then paid directly to the State Fire Commission and it is used to fund services provided by the Tasmania Fire Service such as the provision of brigades, firefighting equipment, fire prevention and protection measures and training facilities for brigades.

Capital Works

We are delivering year four of our 10-year $300 million capital works program in 2019/20.  Funding of $37.4 million will be provided for this purpose - made up of $22 million of existing asset maintenance and $15.4 million in new assets or upgrades.

Some of the key projects include: -

·         $5.6 million for the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre refurbishment;

·         $1 million for Salamanca Place to connect it to the waterfront and make it a safe and accessible space.

 

·         $1.25 million for the New Town Retail precinct upgrade to make it a more vibrant, inviting and accessible place.  This is the third of the local retail precincts to be upgraded after Sandy Bay and Lenah Valley.

·         $1 million for Elizabeth Bus Mall to provide a wider footpath, new passenger shelters, renewed paving and improved convenience for pedestrians, passengers and nearby business operators.

·         $3.52 million for road overlay works and footpath upgrades

·         $1.9 million for sporting facilities

·         $1.98 million for stormwater

Council controls assets worth over $2 billion so it is important that we invest in their maintenance so as not to burden future generations.

New borrowings of up to $20 million will speed up project delivery for capital works, and existing debt of $3.19 million will be repaid. 

In 2019/20 we will continue to work on resilience to climate change, supporting energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.

We will deliver services and programs for older people, young people, children and families, people with disabilities and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

Management and maintenance of our parks, gardens, bushland reserves, sports fields, recreational facilities and streetscapes will continue, as will maintenance of our road and footpath network and our stormwater system and waterways.

Our waste and recycling services and our comprehensive city cleaning regime to prevent pollution, maintain clean public spaces and reduce risks to public health, along with our environmental health program providing inspection and assessment services to protect public health will all continue.

Our economic development, tourism and arts and events functions will be funded to promote Hobart as a destination of choice for business investment and tourism, as well as contributing to a more vibrant and active city for residents.

Positive Operational Result

The Council is committed to ensuring the long-term financial sustainability of the City of Hobart, and this budget balances being financially responsible, providing core services, maintaining our assets while also recognising the impact of rates payments on our community.

In 2019/20, the underlying operating result is a forecast modest positive of $761,000 from a $142 million budget.

It is important to budget for a positive result to provide financial capacity to invest in new and enhanced infrastructure, service debt, meet future liabilities and to allow for unexpected and unforeseen events.  An example of which was the severe weather event in May 2018.

This budget has been prepared on the basis of City’s long-term financial management plan which is designed to achieve modest underlying operating positives annually to provide for the on-going financial sustainability of the City.

We need to ensure that we can continue to provide our extensive range of services and the infrastructure required of a capital city, both now and into the future without burdening future generations of ratepayers with large rates increases or cuts to services.

Conclusion

This budget delivers a good return on investment – the money collected is being spent wisely to ensure we deliver high level services and provide a quality of life expected by people who live, study, work, play and visit our city.

We are the caretakers of a wonderful city and as the budget snapshots I have outlined show, this new Council is committed to delivering positive outcomes for our community.

I commend my elected member colleagues, the General Manager and his team who have worked hard to get the best outcomes for the City of Hobart in presenting this budget for 2019/20.”
