Cr Marli Banks, I agree, and jumping the gun is an dangerous exercise, because of the recoil. He could be hit in the backside.

News to us, say councillors on Anzac Hill development
Could the Councillors and the Mayor who are in the knows tell me where the car parks for residents and visitors will be when Anzac is changed to green?
This morning at 11am, I could not find a spot, which highlights the fact that the parking lot on the plan and design is not big enough and it is already not big enough to serve the Youth Center.

A dark sad thought comes to my mind: May Gunner know the NT cannot afford the project, therefore if it does not happen, he will be off the hook, blaming all of us for the failure.

Gunner should ask the residents as the oval belongs to the ratepayers and not to the Mayor.
After six months of hard work, the committee handed its report to government in mid-November.
The committee believe that the Desert Park is the best location to achieve the project’s vision.
More than any other site considered, it would allow an expression of “connectedness to country,” says Mr Watkins – fundamental for an Indigenous cultural project.
“It’s somewhere where you can understand the grandeur, the majesty of the country, where the museum would have room to breathe,” says Ms Perkins.
Why have a committee if you do not listen to the founding? Is it not throwing money in the wind?

A say for rate payers shoved into ‘confidential’
In the town we have three sides and groups:
1.The ratepayers.
2.The residents taxpayers.

Group number 3 which depends on the good will of the groups number 1 and number 2 to exist (be elected) have not yet realised this fact.
May be the time has come for the concerned ratepayers and residents to have a Ratepayers Association
to campaign for ethical and transparent governance and the provision of genuine information to communities.
Lobby to ensure decision making with real community engagement.

Town Council: New dawn for transparency
Mayor and Councillors are employees with glorified titles.
Assess Staff Performance:
The Act says: “A member must respect the confidentiality of information obtained in confidence in the member’s official capacity” and “the CEO must suppress from publicly available material information classified under the Regulations as confidential”.
And this is to be respected. However the employers, ratepayers and taxpayers cannot be kept too often in the dark as we have the right to judge the staff performance.
