HAVE YOUR SAY: Council is calling for public consultation on their asset management plans.

Naracoorte Lucindale Council is inviting locals to have their say on the council's Asset Management plans.

The council has released for public consultation their asset plans for Road and Stormwater Infrastructure, Buildings and Structures, Naracoorte Waste Transfer Station, Naracoorte Aerodrome & Lucindale Airstrip , Naracoorte Swimming Lake and Lucindale Community Waste Management Scheme.

Speaking at the local government meeting on November 27, Councillor Cameron Grundy said a ratepayer had queried why there were no assets in Frances, such as the Frances Town Hall, listed in the plan to which Director Corporate Services Fiona Stringer said that while there were some structures at Frances owned by council, the hall does not actually belong to council, but is on crown land under council's care and control.

Councillor Julie Earl urged residents to read the plans and have their say.

"I would just like to invite people for comment, because they are not in their final, final stage, they are somewhat moveable, depending on developments and buildings," she said.

"So please, give your comments and don't expect it to be completely finished - we can rely on it, but it can still be open to feedback."

Mayor Erika Vickery agreed.

"We are asking for the public to have some say in them - these are plans that are living, as assets are included and taken off, so they need to be alive."

The plans are available for viewing on the Naracoorte Lucindale Council's website.
