Attachment a   Council Policy 142 - Roadside Advertising  

  

PRÉCIS

 

The purpose of this report is to recommend rescission of Council Policy 142 – Roadside Advertising (the Policy) (Attachment A).  Under the Policy Council is to consider applications for roadside advertising by the calling of a public tender where interest has been shown, and/or Council believes the outcome has a net public benefit within aesthetic criteria. 

 

The Policy was adopted in 2002 and does not appear to have been reviewed since.  A review of the Policy has now been undertaken and it is recommended that it be rescinded, on the basis that it is no longer relevant or aligned to the City’s current strategic direction.

 

BACKGROUND

 

The Policy was adopted in 2002 and sets out the process by which applications for roadside advertising (on bus shelters, street bins, and street seats in urban areas) are to be called and the ‘tests’ to be applied in considering whether such advertising is appropriate.  These include functionality and location of the shelter, bin or seat, the cost / income implications, the aesthetics and quality, and compliance with ‘adopted Council Townscape Guidelines’.  

 

Prior even to the Policy being adopted, the City (then Shire) of Busselton, in 1995, entered into an agreement with Muscara Holdings Pty Ltd trading as Streetside Advertising (Streetside Advertising) for a period of five years for the placement of and advertisement on bench seats within the City.  This agreement was extended beyond that term.

 

During 2012 the CEO requested that City staff review the use of roadside advertising, and accordingly also the services provided by Streetside Advertising. The review found that the benches provided were continually vandalised (mainly being the subject of graffiti), that the quality of the benches was low, and that they were generally out-dated and no longer suited to the landscaping and rejuvenation of the Busselton city centre.

 

Subsequently, in 2014 Council considered a (confidential) report in relation to the contract in place between the City and Streetside Advertising, and more broadly whether this type of advertising (on street seats) is desirable.  Council resolved (C1403/057) as follows:

 

“That the Council does not continue with the existing contract with Streetside Advertising expiring on 30 June 2014”.

 


 

Since that time the City has not entered into any other private contracts with respect to street seat advertising and does not currently have any private contracts in place for the provision of advertising on City bins or bus shelters, with the majority of City provided litter bins in Busselton and Dunsborough city / town centres displaying City images. 

 

STATUTORY ENVIRONMENT

 

In accordance with Section 2.7(2)(b) of the Local Government Act 1995 it is the role of the Council to determine the local government’s policies.  The Council does this on the recommendation of a Committee it has established in accordance with Section 5.8 of that Act.

 

RELEVANT PLANS AND POLICIES

 

In August 2017 the CEO commissioned a high level independent review of the City’s governance systems - the Governance Systems Review.   Included in the scope of the review was the City’s policy and procedure framework with the following recommendations made:

 

1.    There should be a review of the Council Policies with the intent that a Council Policy:

a.    Should deal with higher level objectives and strategies;

b.    Should not deal with operational matters, employee matters, or other matters which are the responsibility if the CEO; and

c.     Should, where appropriate provide sufficient direction to the CEO to develop OPPs which deal with the implementation of the Council Policy or other detailed matters.

2.    As part of that review, any existing Council Policy should be deleted where it could, more sensibly, be dealt with by an OPP adopted by the CEO.

3.    Consideration should be given to developing a new Council Policy which sets out the ‘framework’ for Council Policies, OPPs and other procedures.  The new Policy would explain the role to be played by each level of document.  It could, for example, be called a Policy Framework Policy.

In response a Policy Framework has been developed and endorsed by Council, setting out the intent of Council policies, as opposed to operational documents such as Staff Management Practices and operational procedures.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

The recommendation to rescind the policy has no financial implications. 

 

Long-term Financial Plan Implications

 

The recommendation to rescind the policy has no long term financial plan implications. 

 


 

STRATEGIC COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES

 

The Officers Recommendation will not impact adversely on the achievement of any of the community objectives contained within the Strategic Community Plan 2017 and will instead serve to meet the objectives of Key Goal Area 6, specifically:

·    community objective 6.1 – ‘Governance systems, processes and practices are responsible, ethical and transparent’, by streamlining the City’s governance approach with respect to strategic planning; and

·    community objective 6.4 – ‘Assets are well maintained and responsibly managed’, by ensuring that urban infrastructure is appropriate and able to be readily maintained to the City’s standards.

 

RISK ASSESSMENT

 

The City does not currently utilise roadside advertising as contemplated by the Policy.  In the event, however that the City wanted in the future to enter into such an arrangement (despite the considerations outlined in the Officer Comment section of this report), the absence of a specific policy will not limit this.  As such there are no identified risks of a medium or greater level associated with the Officers Recommendation.

 

CONSULTATION

 

No consultation was considered necessary in relation to this matter.

 

OFFICER COMMENT

 

The Policy is obviously very out-dated; it refers to guidelines under the Dunsborough and Busselton Town Centre Studies (2002), which are also out-dated and considered inconsistent with current strategic planning guidelines, and references a Townscape Advisory Committee that has ceased to exist.  The policy requires for tenders to be called for roadside advertising, however under the current Local Government Act 1995 and the Local Government (Functions and General) Regulations 1996, the contract value of this type of advertising is unlikely to require a tender.

 

Roadside advertising of the type contemplated by the Policy is normally based on a supplier providing free seats/benches and / or associated infrastructure (like litter bins and bus shelters) in exchange for the right to advertise on a limited number of these structures.  The risk of profit or loss associated with the advertising normally lies with the supplier, with the local government earning a (relatively small) fixed fee for granting the right to advertise on a pre-determined number of structures.  The supplier is also responsible for maintaining these structures (including removal of graffiti).

 

The major consideration or benefit for entering into this type of advertising agreement is the provision and maintenance of the structures by the supplier, at no cost to the local government. The number of structures to be provided by the supplier (and hence the financial advantage of such an agreement to Council) will depend on a range of factors, including the number and location of structures allowed, the design and quality of the furniture (for instance a preparedness to accept plain, robust furniture will generally result in more “free” non-advertising structures being supplied) and the term of the contract.

 


 

While design and standard of infrastructure should be negotiable under an agreement, overall the aesthetic value of this type of advertising is questionable and could detract from the City’s town and landscapes.  Importantly, the City, as part of its ongoing Busselton and Dunsborough foreshore redevelopment projects, has determined certain themes for street furniture in high profile areas like the Busselton and Dunsborough centres and foreshores, and in Port Geographe (that is specific designs, materials and standards for items like bench seats, litter bins and barbeques). It is unlikely that the City would have an unlimited choice/discretion in relation to design and materials, which could then result in the need to compromise on its strategic direction in this regard.

 

The City’s ability to control advertising material and standards likely to be limited. Maintenance and response times (especially where the supplier is in Perth) is also likely to be an issue.  Due to the nature and prominent location of street furniture, it is preferred for maintenance of street furniture to be under the direct control of the City (to ensure that damage caused by graffiti or other types of vandalism is repaired in the shortest possible time).


It is for all of the above reasons that the City does not currently have any arrangements in place for the provision of roadside advertising of the type contemplated by this Policy and why officers consider it appropriate to rescind, as opposed to update, the Policy.

 

CONCLUSION

 

It is recommended that the Policy be rescinded, as it is not considered to be relevant or aligned to the City’s current strategic direction and objectives. 

 

OPTIONS

 

Council could instead require that the Policy is reviewed and updated to reflect an alternate position and high level principles with respect to roadside advertising arrangements.

 

TIMELINE FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF OFFICER RECOMMENDATION

 

The Policy will be rescinded immediately upon adoption of the Officers Recommendation.

 

OFFICER RECOMMENDATION

 

That the Council rescinds Council Policy 142 – Roadside Advertising.

Attachment a   Workshop Environmental Policy

Attachment b    Environment Policy  

  

PRÉCIS

 

The purpose of this report is to recommend rescission of Council Policy 245 – Workshop Environmental Policy (the Policy) (Attachment A).  The Policy outlines Council’s position with respect to reducing its environmental impact in all aspects of its work activities and specifically applies to the operation of the workshop at the City depot. 

 

The Policy was originally created in 2009 as part of an initiative at the time to achieve Motor Trade Association of WA (MTA) Green Stamp Environmental Accreditation.  In order to achieve level three of the accreditation, an Environmental Policy was required.  In 2017 the City reviewed its membership of the MTA along with the Green Stamp accreditation and its benefits and decided not to retain either.  This report, therefore recommends that the Policy be rescinded.

 

BACKGROUND

 

The Policy was originally created in 2009 as part of an initiative by the then mechanical workshop team to achieve Motor Trade Association of WA (MTA) Green Stamp Environmental Accreditation.  The mechanical workshop had taken on the challenge to reduce its impact on the environment which involved reviewing its use of toxic chemicals and detergents and ensuring that materials are disposed of in the appropriate manner (recycling materials, correct disposal of oils at waste facilities and so on).  In order to achieve level three of the accreditation (the final step), an Environmental Policy was required. 

 

The Policy was reviewed in 2012, with officers recommending that it be retained (with minor changes to terminology only) to demonstrate the organisation’s commitment to best practice operating procedures for the motor trades industry.  The relevant accreditation was also retained. 

 

In 2017 the City reviewed its membership of the MTA, along with the Green Stamp accreditation and its benefits and decided not to retain either.  While the work done to obtain the accreditation was worthwhile and remains in place as part of Fleet Service’s standard operating protocols and procedures, the accreditation itself was not felt to have any sufficient value to retain.  While purported to have leadership benefits with respect to encouraging other local businesses to follow the City’s lead, there has been no significant visible manifestation of such purported leadership/benefit.  This report therefore recommends that the Policy be rescinded.

 


 

The recommendation to rescind the Policy is also aligned to the recommendations of the Governance Services Review (GSR), a high level independent review of the City’s governance systems undertaken by Mr John Woodhouse in August 2017 – November 2017.  With respect to the City’s policy and procedure framework the GSR recommended as follows:

 

1.    There should be a review of the Council Policies with the intent that a Council Policy:

a.    Should deal with higher level objectives and strategies;

b.    Should not deal with operational matters, employee matters, or other matters which are the responsibility if the CEO; and

c.     Should, where appropriate provide sufficient direction to the CEO to develop OPPs which deal with the implementation of the Council Policy or other detailed matters.

2.    As part of that review, any existing Council Policy should be deleted where it could, more sensibly, be dealt with by an OPP adopted by the CEO.

3.    Consideration should be given to developing a new Council Policy which sets out the ‘framework’ for Council Policies, OPPs and other procedures.  The new Policy would explain the role to be played by each level of document.  It could, for example, be called a Policy Framework Policy.

The Policy contains principles that are able to be embodied in operational practices and procedures.

STATUTORY ENVIRONMENT

 

In accordance with Section 2.7(2)(b) of the Local Government Act 1995 it is the role of the Council to determine the local government’s policies.  The Council does this on the recommendation of a Committee it has established in accordance with Section 5.8 of that Act.

 

RELEVANT PLANS AND POLICIES

 

The City has a broader environmental policy, Policy 030 - Environmental Policy (Attachment B), adopted in 2004 and last reviewed in 2016.  This policy outlines Council’s commitment towards continuous improvement in environmental management and to ensuring its decision making considers the impacts on the environment and identifies measures to adequately manage them.  With respect to implementation of its objectives the policy refers to planning, designing, operating and conducting operations in a manner that minimises waste and the demand on natural resources and energy.  Hence, it has relevance and sets out Council’s commitment to the environment, even in the absence of the Policy. 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

The recommendation to rescind the Policy has no financial implications,  However the annual MTA membership and Green Stamp accreditation was costing the City $890 per annum. 

 

Long-term Financial Plan Implications

 

The recommendation to rescind the policy has no long term financial plan implications. 

 


 

STRATEGIC COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES

 

The Officers Recommendation will not impact adversely on the achievement of any of the community objectives contained within the Strategic Community Plan 2017 and will instead serve to meet the objectives of Key Goal Area 6, specifically community objective 6.1 - Governance systems, processes and practices are responsible, ethical and transparent, by streamlining the City’s governance approach with respect to strategic planning.

 

RISK ASSESSMENT

 

The City’s current management of the workshop and existing operational practices and procedures align with the intent and principles of the Policy.  Therefore, there are no identified risks of a medium or greater level associated with the Officers Recommendation

 

CONSULTATION

 

No consultation was considered necessary in relation to this matter.

 

OFFICER COMMENT

 

While maintaining the MTA Green Stamp accreditation had previously been a relatively simple process, the requirements changed in 2017, making the paperwork and overall process a lot more onerous.  The MTA is a body created predominantly to improve the environmental processes and outcomes of mechanical workshops in the private sector, and also provide a point of difference for them from a marketing perspective.  The City joined the organisation to demonstrate its commitment to good environmental practices and outcomes.  The Policy was designed to reflect this and to facilitate achievement of the level three accreditation.  

 

Regardless of accreditation, the Fleet Service’s current standard operating practices and procedures continue to demonstrate a commitment to the environment,  with a focus on using the most environmentally friendly, lowest toxic products available, and with established (and easy) access to proper waste disposal. 

 

Further, the City’s Environmental Policy continues to reflect Council’s commitment to the environment and to the principles of planning, designing, operating and conducting operations in a manner that minimises waste and the demand on natural resources and energy.

 

CONCLUSION

 

It is recommended that the Policy be rescinded, as it is no longer directly relevant and the principles are covered sufficiently by Policy 030 and current operational practices and procedures.

 

OPTIONS

 

Council could instead require that the Policy is retained and / or further reviewed.  For the reasons outlined in this report, that is not recommended. 

 


 

TIMELINE FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF OFFICER RECOMMENDATION

 

The Policy will be rescinded immediately upon adoption of the Officers Recommendation.

Attachment a   Council Policy 217/3 - Reserve Maintenance Standards  

  

PRÉCIS

 

The purpose of this report is to recommend rescission of Council Policy 217/3 – Reserve Maintenance Standards (the Policy) (Attachment A).  The Policy, which is very brief and out-dated, states that parks maintenance standards will be set by Council according to the Passive and Active Reserve Maintenance Standards Schedules.

 

In August 2017 the CEO commissioned a high level independent review of the City’s governance systems - the Governance Systems Review (GSR).   Included in the scope of the review was the City’s policy and procedure framework with recommendations made in relation to the nature and intent of Council policies, namely that there should be a review of Council policies and that Council policies should deal with higher level strategies and objectives, as opposed to operational matters. 

 

In accordance with the recommendations of the GSR, and for the reasons outlined in the report, it is recommended that the Policy be rescinded.

 

BACKGROUND

 

It is not clear exactly when the Policy was first adopted.  Documentation held in the City’s record keeping system indicates it was in existence, and possibly created in 1999 with the referenced Passive and Active Maintenance Standards Schedule attached to the agenda of an Executive Committee meeting held on 17 February 1999.  The Policy is clearly out-dated and requires review.  

 

With respect to the City’s policies generally, the GSR was undertaken over a 3 month period by Mr John Woodhouse LLB B.Juris and made the following recommendations with respect to the City’s policy and procedure framework:

 

1.    There should be a review of the Council Policies with the intent that a Council Policy:

a.    Should deal with higher level objectives and strategies;

b.    Should not deal with operational matters, employee matters, or other matters which are the responsibility if the CEO; and

c.     Should, where appropriate provide sufficient direction to the CEO to develop OPPs which deal with the implementation of the Council Policy or other detailed matters.

2.    As part of that review, any existing Council Policy should be deleted where it could, more sensibly, be dealt with by an OPP adopted by the CEO.

3.    Consideration should be given to developing a new Council Policy which sets out the ‘framework’ for Council Policies, OPPs and other procedures.  The new Policy would explain the role to be played by each level of document.  It could, for example, be called a Policy Framework Policy.

In response a Policy Framework has been developed and endorsed by Council, setting out the intent of Council policies, as opposed to operational documents such as Staff Management Practices and operational procedures. 

 

It is considered that this Policy in terms of its intent is now managed through other Council and operational processes and it is therefore recommended that the Policy be rescinded.

 

STATUTORY ENVIRONMENT

 

In accordance with Section 2.7(2)(b) of the Local Government Act 1995 it is the role of the Council to determine the local government’s policies.  The Council does this on the recommendation of a Committee it has established in accordance with Section 5.8 of that Act.

 

RELEVANT PLANS AND POLICIES

 

There are no plans or other policies directly relevant.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

The recommendation to rescind the policy has no financial implications. 

 

Long-term Financial Plan Implications

 

The recommendation to rescind the policy has no long term financial plan implications. 

 

STRATEGIC COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES

 

The Officers Recommendation will not impact adversely on the achievement of any of the community objectives contained within the Strategic Community Plan 2017 and will instead serve to meet the objectives of Key Goal Area 6, specifically community objective 6.1 - Governance systems, processes and practices are responsible, ethical and transparent, by streamlining the City’s governance approach with respect to strategic planning.

 

RISK ASSESSMENT

 

The City undertakes asset management and maintenance planning on a regular basis with respect to all of its assets, including parks, with these processes providing for the maintenance of parks within budget allocations.  Therefore there are no identified risks of a medium or greater level associated with the Officers Recommendation.

 

CONSULTATION

 

No consultation was considered necessary in relation to this matter.

 


 

OFFICER COMMENT

 

The Policy is out-dated and references a schedule that is no longer relevant.  The intent of the Policy is also currently adequately managed through other Council and operational processes, namely asset management planning, long term financial planning and budgeting, and operational maintenance scheduling.  

 

While the Policy was probably necessary at the time it was adopted, these planning processes, which are ongoing and continuously being refined, are well established at the City.  This is particularly since the introduction of ‘Integrated Planning’ by the (then) Department of Local Government in 2011 and its focus on strategic and asset management planning.  The Policy therefore is not considered necessary. 

 

In the event that Council does want to retain a policy outlining their commitment or position with respect to the maintenance of parks and reserves, the Policy could be revised to provide a more relevant statement. 

 

CONCLUSION

 

It is recommended that the Policy be rescinded, as it is sufficiently managed by current Council and operational practices and procedures.

 

OPTIONS

 

Council could instead require that the Policy is reviewed and updated to reflect a more relevant strategic statement with respect to parks maintenance standards. 

 

TIMELINE FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF OFFICER RECOMMENDATION

 

The Policy will be rescinded immediately upon adoption of the Officers Recommendation.

That the Council rescinds Council Policy 0217/3 – Parks Maintenance Standards.

PRÉCIS

 

The Local Government Act 1995 (the Act) requires delegations made under that Act to be reviewed by the delegator at least once every financial year.    Additionally, delegations made under the Cat Act 2011 and the Dog Act 1976 are required to be reviewed once every financial year.  This review is to fulfil those requirements.

 

BACKGROUND

 

Council has the ability to delegate the exercise of powers and discharge of duties to its Chief Executive Officer or to Committees.  These delegations are required to be reviewed by the delegator (in this case the Council) at least once in every financial year.

 

STATUTORY ENVIRONMENT

 

Section 5.42 of the Act provides the Council with the ability to delegate powers and duties to its CEO.  Some powers and duties cannot be delegated in accordance with Section 5.43 of the Act, such as matters that require an Absolute Majority decision of the Council. 

 

Section 5.16 of the Act provides the ability for powers and duties to be delegated to Committees.  This review is to comply with the requirements of Section 5.18 of the Act.

 

Section 127 of the Building Act 2011 provides Council with the ability to delegate powers and duties to its CEO and Section 96(3) of the Building Act 2011 provides Council with the ability to delegate the designation of authorised persons pursuant to Section 96(3) of the Act.

 

Clause 82 of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme) Regulations 2015, Schedule 2 Deemed Provisions for Local Planning Schemes provides Council with the ability to delegate powers and duties to its CEO.

 

The delegations must be contained in a Register.  Wherever a decision has been made under delegated authority, records of the decision must be kept in accordance with the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996.

 

Section 44 of the Cat Act 2011 provides the power for Council to delegate the exercise of its functions and discharge of its duties to the CEO.  Section 47(2) of that Act requires the delegator to review delegations at least once every financial year.

 

Section 10AA of the Dog Act 1976 provides Council with the ability to delegate powers and duties to its CEO.  In accordance with Section 10AB(2) of that Act, the delegations must be reviewed at least once every financial year.


RELEVANT PLANS AND POLICIES

 

The Department of Local Government and Communities Operational Guidelines Number 17 - ‘Delegations’ and the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 are both relevant to this matter.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

 

There are no financial implications involved in reviewing Delegations, however, utilisation of delegated authority creates organisational efficiencies.  Without a system of delegated authority in place, a significant number of day-to-day local government decisions would need to be referred to Council as agenda reports.  Having an effective delegated authority system in place reduces the turnaround time for some matters which allows for the Council to use its time to undertake its more strategic role.

Long-term Financial Plan Implications

 

There are no direct Long Term Financial Plan implications associated with this review.

STRATEGIC COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES

 

This statutory delegation review aligns with and supports the Council’s Key Goal Area 6 – ‘Leadership’ and more specifically Community Objective 6.1 – ‘Governance systems, process and practices are responsible, ethical and transparent’.

RISK ASSESSMENT

 

Not required for a review undertaken in accordance with statutory requirements.

CONSULTATION

 

The current delegations were developed with reference to the Department of Local Government and Communities Operational Guidelines Number 17 – ‘Delegations’.

 

OFFICER COMMENT

 

There are a range of powers and duties delegated to the CEO in accordance with the powers provided by Sections 5.42(1)(a) and (b) of the Local Government Act 1995.  These are largely recommended to continue unchanged, with the exception of proposed updates as identified in the table below.   The table provides an overview of the current delegations and an explanation of the powers exercised by the CEO.  Minor amendments are proposed to delegations LG3A, LG3M, BA1, PDR1, LG3I, LG7A, CA1 and DA1.

The reasons for the proposed changes to delegations LG3A, LG3M, BA1, PDR1, LG3I, LG7A, CA1 and DA1 have been documented in the ‘Purpose’ column for each delegation.
