Mitchell Shire Council Says...

Our Roads Maintenance team collect customer request data, using keyword search terms and the date range to aggregate information contained within Council's corporate record-keeping system. This list is further interrogated by the Capital Works Coordinator to establish the exact number of road requests that relate to the sealed local road network. Officers have worked toward improving the accuracy of this data across both teams. Further improvement is expected in the future as the Customer Request Management System Project is rolled out across the organisation.

Mitchell Shire Council Says...

Costs to re-construct sealed roads during the 2019/20 financial year are considered to be within acceptable limits and represent value for money. The pavement's thicknesses and its layer composition are the major determinants of the final cost of a pavement construction. During the 2019/20 financial year, the program consisted of heavy pavement replacements such as Wallis and Oak Streets pavements in Seymour. This resulted a much higher cost per square meter than in previous years.

Our communities level of satisfaction, while slightly lower than in previous years, is a credit to Councillors and staff who have all worked hard to engage with community, improve our services, obtain significant grant funding and provide great visibility to the community of new and improved infrastructure.
