Alice Springs Town Council 2004/2005 Annual Report Page 4 Mayors Message The 2004/05 year has been another successful year for the Council and for the people of Alice Springs. Council is committed to developing forward strategies to ensure a bright and prosperous future for our Town. Following extensive consultation over the last two years the Alice Springs Town Council Strategic Plan was adopted in April 2005. The Plan sets a clear vision for Council in partnership with the two other tiers of government, non government agencies, service clubs and the general community to improve the quality of life in Alice Springs. My review of the past year highlights a number of achievements that are important for the continued social and economic growth of Alice Springs. Those projects include: The establishment of the University of the 3rd Age for the senior Citizens of Alice Springs; Participation in a major consortium bid for Solar Cities; Three year Action Plan. Strengthening the Position of Alice Springs. One of the major challenges facing Alice Springs and local governments across Australia is the backlog of asset maintenance and the standard of community facilities. This year we were challenged with compliance guidelines with the Alice Springs Swimming Pool that will require additional Council funds in addition to the funds provided by the Northern Territory Government to ensure a safe pool. Council will need to continue to increase its communication and partnerships with both the Northern Territory Government and the Australian Government to improve our major infrastructures such as road, rail and the airport. In 2004 -2005 there was major planning discussions about improvements to Alice Springs Railway station and the connections to our township. Further work is required in progressing the development of the Alice Springs Airport to increase our international services for us to remain the gateway to Central Australia. The Councillors and staff have delivered exceptional service to the Alice Springs community and I thank them for their resourcefulness and desire to achieve high quality outcomes. As Mayor of the Town of Alice Springs I am proud to be part of this community. It is with pleasure that I present Councils 2004/05 Annual Report. The Report provides a clear and open account of Councils activities during the last financial year. Fran Kilgariff MAYOR
