Comment on Council partnership in CBD complex seems certain by Ray.

Good to see a progressive council looking at the future of a town that is Alice, not one that is Like Alice.
We can’t be stuck in the past all the time, but we need to balance where we are going against where we came from, so caution is needed.
Mayor Ryan is right though, is looking first as to the ability of the council to do this under the Local Government Act.
Using a council generated income stream to offset rate increases would be a good selling point to encourage people to set up here, it would be nice to see a town progress through innovation rather than simply increasing rates.
Have they considered an underground car park rather than an above ground multi story?
Would be interesting to get a hydrology report to see if this was an option.
Could we use underground water storage in the design of this car park (if it was possible to build) to collect storm runoff?
This could be used to water the green areas in the CBD. What about self sufficient power generation and storage? Could Jimmy Cocking be involved. With the most sunshine and limited rainfall, it would be good to start leading the way and making these projects smart in design.
Well done to this current crop of councillors for thinking this way.

Agreed Evelyn, but some of these are. WHS laws have failed this person.
Let’s hope she takes it to Worksafe NT, as there are certainly some breaches here.

Wow, so many nasty and uninformed comments here. Even Joel Flemming, one of the most knowledgable people we have has said that Remote 4WD training should be a part of any worker’s training before they go remote.
Ultimately it is the bosses’ responsibility to assess the hazard and manage the risk, and yes, the worker has the right to refuse unsafe work.
Unfortunately it does not always happen in the real world especially the NT, and workers are often victimised when exercising their rights, especially as there has been a substantial review into OHS in the Territory recently.

She’s not the only one Erwin, you would be amazed at some organisations that do exactly the same thing, except they do have a satellite phone.

Evelyne, you have absolutely nailed it. Sadly the pandering virtue signallers that Matthew refers to will protect them from that and guarantee their spiral into a life of incarceration.
