HELP US SHAPE THE PRIORITIES FOR THE FUTURE OF MOREE PLAINS SHIRE


In 2013, we worked with you to identify your priorities for the future of our community and as a result, Moree Plains 2035 Community Strategic Plan was endorsed. This has guided us over the last 4 years.

With a new Council, it’s now time to revisit our vision and long-term goals and objectives to make sure they remain relevant – leading us to develop our new Community Strategic Plan:

Moree Plains 2027 - Your Shire. The Plan. Our Future.

This Plan essentially addresses four key questions for the community:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be in 10 years’ time?
  • How will we get there?
  • How will we know we’ve arrived?

COUNCIL PROACTIVELY ASSESSING THE SEWER CONDITIONS

 

Moree Plains Shire Council is continuing with inspections, risk assessment and maintenance of the sewer manholes throughout Moree to assess the condition of these assets.

 

The sewer assessments are being done as part of Council’s asset management strategy to better understand the overall condition of the sewerage mains. It allows Council, through the use of closed circuit television (CCTV), to identify issues and maintenance requirements and therefore, prioritise resources across the network to provide reliable sewerage infrastructure for the community.

 

By adopting a more strategic approach to maintenance we will reduce unplanned maintenance requests including after-hours call outs and the associated inconvenience for community members. In addition, by undertaking maintenance activities on a more planned basis, the overall annual maintenance cost of these assets will reduce over time.

 

Council’s Water Services Manager, Roland Heatley explained the asset management initiatives are a proactive management measure.

 

“Some of the asset management initiatives we are currently implementing will provide us with a better snapshot of the overall condition of the sewerage mains in Moree. This will identify issues with the lines earlier so a bit of maintenance intervention will avoid the need for a full renewal,” said Mr Heatley.

 

Residents can rest assure that the investigation and cleaning work will not impact on services to homes or businesses.

 

Traffic and pedestrian access will be managed to allow work to proceed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
