A NUMBER of Alice Springs councillors are upset by the NT Governments lack of consultation in deciding to place the National Indigenous Art Gallery at Anzac Oval. Council will work out an official position on whether it supports the location in the coming months. Speaking in a personal capacity, Deputy Mayor Jamie de Brenni was bothered by the NT Governments lack of engagement with Council and other key stakeholders. Weve never been consulted we dont know what the proposal is, he said. We requested the NT Government hold off and consult with us, with traditional owners, with rugby league this hasnt been handled properly. Mr de Brenni said Council needed to get more infor mation about the Governments plans for the gallery before it could come to a position on the matter. I dont think we can go to public consultation until we know what were consulting about, he said. Mr de Brenni asked whether the NT Government would support Council with the upkeep of the new facilities, suggesting with previous projects the maintenance fees had been left to Council. Councillors upset by Oval designation Whats the impact on the ratepayers? Whats the rate increase going to be? he said. Councillor Eli Melky said he approved of having the gallery in town but was disappointed the NT Government rushed to make a decision on the location before consulting Council. I think its important that we as a Council simply move forward and engage the community in a mature way, he said. Councillor Glen Auricht said those upset with the process were missing out on what was at stake, suggesting there would be huge community and business benefits stemming from the gallery being located in town. Council will take the matter to the committee stage, before consulting the public in order to determine a position on the location of the gallery. Jack Price Whats the impact on the ratepayers?
