Mayor Dominic King: “I will faithfully and impartially carry out the functions, powers, authorities and discretions vested in me under the Local Government Act 1993 …”

With family and friends looking on, the Shire’s councillors swore their oath and saw through their first monthly meeting last Wednesday.

The only hiccup to the formerwas Cr Steven Jenkin’s late entrance and surprise announcement that he was not taking his Local Government oath in front of those gathered –and pointedly was not duty-boundto the council’s general manager –and instead had gone ahead with the formalities a day earlier using Dorrigo solicitor Nikki Dikkings as an official overseer.

The quickallegiance-service was followed by a morning tea and thenstraight into the doings of council.

First up was a request by Dorrigo Rotary and Lions clubs to enter into a joint venture with council to provide “a suitable, safe enclosure around the children’s playground in Coronation Park, Dorrigo”. It was decidedthe placement of a partial $6000 barrierwas the preferred solution as “the creation of an additional asset is not desirable from a purist asset maintenance perspective …andthere is concern of possibly creating an expectation that council would adopt this approach for all playgrounds and diminish the importance of parental responsibility”.

Next up, six councillors (Jenkins the dissenting vote) ticked off and “in principle”support to erect permanent lighting and a stage within the grounds of Maam Gaduying Park, Bellingen. The project’s estimated at$100,000, however council has not been requested to fork out the funds.The Rotary Club of Bellingen has formulated a business plan andrequested council support soDA can be lodged, which will assist in future grant applications to fund the project.

Water, an operational update and the council finances were reported tocouncillors, and also thevote for deputy mayor.

In a contest between CrDesmae Harrison and Cr Jenkins, the former took the crown,5:2.
