Latest news from Cr Steane


As the closest level of government to the community, Councillors are often the first port of call for residents questions and concerns.

While we endeavour to do what we can to assist our community, it is important to note that often situations may relate to a state or federal matter over which Council has no authority.

In these instances, Council takes on an advocacy role. We work with our local politicians and government departments to raise the concerns of our residents and work towards a positive outcome. The circumstances are varied and range from the maintenance of grass along state-owned roads; graffiti removal on railway property; or significant projects such as the removal of level crossings.

Council prides itself on working hard for the community and has a good track record when it comes to advocacy with both levels of government. If you have any advocacy projects you would like to discuss please contact me, or one of your ward Councillors.
