Capability Survey Results 2013

The Shire of Irwin recently received very positive feedback in  regards to our compliance with the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework.

The Department of Local Government and Communities issues a survey each year to gain a snapshot of local government capability.

In 2012-13 the Shire of Irwin exceeded the state average by meeting the baseline standard across four capability elements;

  • Strategic Community Planning
  • Asset Management
  • Financial Management
  • Workforce Planning

The state-average indicates that only 2-3 of the 4 elements have been met by local governments this year.

Street Sign Audit

A recent audit of the Shire’s street signs has revealed that there is a significant number of street signs being damaged or stolen. The Shire is undertaking to replace the missing signs at a cost of more than $5,000.

It is a criminal offence to steal a street sign and anyone thinking of taking a sign should be mindful of our increased awareness and the high and unnecessary cost to ratepayers.
