Unley Publications : Unley Life Autumn 2018
I have the privilege of being your Acting Mayor until the next local government elections in November and I hope, with the assistance of my fellow Councillors and our extremely capable staff, to make this relatively short period as productive and positive as possible. Firstly, though, I must congratulate our outgoing Mayor Lachlan Clyne whose capable leadership over the past seven years has resulted in a broad range of projects and initiatives to the great benefit of our City. I wish him all the best in his new focus on state politics. I’m keen, as I suppose all Mayors are, to enhance the role of our Elected Members, to build better lines of communication between them, our senior Council staff and members of the community. I’m a grass roots community person and I intend to meet as many residents as possible during the year. We already have a large number of major projects under way in Unley, from the smar t technology project at Hey wood Park to upgrades at Unley and Goodwood ovals, the King William Road Masterplan and the Brownhill Creek flood prevention project. These projects have taken much planning over many years and it is exciting seeing them close to fruition. We have a great City; we’ve achieved much, but we can’t stand still and a major focus of my tenure as Acting Mayor will be to ensure we keep moving, taking on new challenges while we continue to manage those that already exist. I thank Cr Don Palmer, our Deputy Mayor for 2017, for the way he has carried out that role and his strong back up suppor t when Mayor Clyne was unavailable. I would like to congratulate Cr Michael Hewitson on his appointment as Deputy Mayor and to thank Cr John Koumi who has resigned due to other major commitments having served on Council since 1981. His has been a most substantial commitment to public life and the community and he will be greatly missed. Finally, I must urge you to read on as this issue of Unley Life has its usual range of great stories, including a Q & A with Lachlan Clyne, how the Tour Down Under was another great success for Unley, more on upgrades to our sporting facilities and how we’re using revolutionary technology in Heywood Park.
