Elai Semisi Director Shrijana Poudyal Assets Co-ordinator Emily Jones Fleets Officer David Reed Municipal Supervisor Matthew Hicks Municipal Supervisor Richard James Municipal Manager +15 Municipal Staff The Infrastructure Team Key Challenges Staffing levels is a significant factor within the infrastructure directorate and retention of key staff can impose a problem for the directorate as this has shown in the past. Retaining staff in Council is a regional problem and there is no one solution fits all. As a result, some of the functions such as scoping of roadworks (sealed and unsealed roads) and condition assessments of roads are outsourced to a local contractor. Geographical size and remoteness of the Barkly region presents ongoing challenges to the cost of supply of goods and services. The current drought has badly affected the town of TC as evidenced by desiccated flora and almost complete dry-out of Lake Mary Ann-Dam. The water shortage has affected nearby cattle stations which led to stray cattle discovered in the town area searching for water. The municipal used water from this dam to water the surrounding park but has stopped this operation since June 2019. 45Barkly Regional Council
