On the continued saga of the BH/Golf Club merger, Council CEO, Dr. Andrew Johnson, said there will be a meeting with both parties late December.
President Mark Hanlon brought up what he believes is a poor position of the RV overnight stop near Globe Oval. He said it should be moved to an area near the CBD. Most executive agreed with this. Geoff Brock said there was a need to upgrade the signage in order that drivers new where to go when going down Ellen street.
Secretary was asked to write to Council re a recommendation for re-location.
Geoff Brock told the meeting that round three of the development fund had been brought forward. Over the next few years $45m will be available from Regional SA. Mr Brock also said that there was a possibility of more Marine Parks being opened in the near future.
Dr. Andrew Johnson said council had been successful in taking out two Silver Awards at the recent Tourism Awards. He also said work on widening the abattoirs road would start next year.
Stephen Richter said his client, Wilson Pastoral had received a $1m grant for an upcoming project. Mr Richter also reported the flour mill at Booleroo Centre was exporting to 6-7 countries.
Bertus DeVilliers said all was going well with the Nyrstar Transformation Project. When work was at full capacity more than 450 workers would be on site.
The President and members of the Executive wish all members and the community a Very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
