Confirmation of Minutes of Ordinary Meeting

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the Minutes of the Ordinary Meeting held on 16 April 2019 be confirmed.

The motion was put and carried.

 

 

Reception and Consideration of Committee Reports

 

Economic Development Committee

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the Economic Development Committee Report No. 2019(05) of 14 May 2019 be received and adopted.

The motion was put and carried.

 

Growth and Infrastructure Committee

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the Growth and Infrastructure Committee Report No. 2019(05) of 14 May 2019 be received and adopted.

 

DISCUSSION

Item 3 - North Ipswich Stadium Design Definition Report – the Interim Administrator commented that this is not a decision to spend $10 million on a stadium redevelopment. This is an in-principle decision to “set the ball rolling” for potential redevelopment of the North Ipswich Stadium. He stated that this is based on discussions that he and others have had with representatives from both rugby league and with football (soccer) organisations who are seeking national competition standard licences; an NRL licence and an A-League licence. One of the pre-conditions of both licences appears to be a stadium of a certain scope, and discussions have included how to secure two or three levels of governments and the private sector to commit to a stadium scope in this context. The Interim Administrator advised this is “getting the ball rolling” by council publicly stating that, if a certain number of things happen, then council ought to contribute $10 million towards a redevelopment. The provisos for that expenditure are:

·   There needs to be a strategic business case and a concept design that supports the development of the stadium. Both those are in progress but not yet complete.

·   There needs to be a commitment by the state and commonwealth governments of at least equivalent funding to the council.

·   There needs to be an agreement from the state that the land transfers to Stadiums Queensland as the custodian of the state’s major sporting venues and that means that all the subsequent capital and operating costs of costs of that stadium are met by the state.

·   There needs to  be a licence granted to one or both of those football codes.

 

The Interim Administrator advised that all of these commitments and events will need to happen before the council would then commit $10 million. He stated that it really is council commencing the process and allowing both football and rugby league to talk to their national codes and talk to State and Commonwealth Governments about securing funding. He commented that the $10 million is council’s contribution of one third of the first stage of a multi-stage redevelopment of the stadium and that this was calculated through a master planning process.

Item 10 – New Ipswich Planning Scheme – the Interim Administrator formally acknowledged and thanked John Adams for his work in leading the draft of the new Planning Scheme which will go out for formal public consultation next week.

 

IThe motion was put and carried.

 

Communities Committee

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the Communities Committee Report No. 2019(05) of 14 May 2019 be received and adopted.

The motion was put and carried.

 

Environment Committee

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the Environment Committee Report No. 2019(05) of 14 May 2019 be received and adopted.

 

DISCUSSION

Item 4 – Proposed 2019 Environment and Sustainability Events – the Interim Administrator advised that council has an events schedule endorsed by the Environment Committee for environmental related matters for this year. He advised that for next year, council is going to ask the Environment Community Reference Group for their views. He stated that this is a good example of how council will use the community reference groups to consider some of the matters around council.

The motion was put and carried.

 

 

Governance Committee

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the Governance Committee Report No. 2019(05) of 14 May 2019 be received and adopted subject to an amendment to Items 6 and 14.

 

AMENDMENT TO ITEM 6        

PROPOSED NEW TRUSTEE LEASE OVER RESERVE FOR RECREATION PURPOSES AUSTRALIAN CRAWL (GOODNA) PTY LTD 19A TOONGARRA ROAD, LEICHHARDT

 

The deletion of the current recommendation with the following recommendation:

 

That further analysis of the Trustee Lease for the Leichhardt Pool be undertaken and the outcome submitted to a future committee meeting.

 

AMENDMENT TO ITEM 14      

REQUEST FOR RATE CONCESSION AND/OR EXEMPTION FOR VEDANTA CENTRE OF SYDNEY

 

That Recommendation E be amended by the deletion of the date 5 June 2019 and the insertion of the date 5 June 2015.

 

DISCUSSION

Item 1 – Policy Amendment - Public Interest Disclosure - the Interim Administrator advised this is a great example of this council addressing governance concerns and issues and thanked staff and members of the Interim Management Committee involved in preparation of the report.

 

Item 2 – Review of Policies – ‘Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy’ – the Interim Administrator advised this is a very comprehensive policy outlining the appropriate way for councillors and staff to handle Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality. He stated that, in his view, this is the most comprehensive policy in local government now in Queensland and thanked staff and members of the Interim Management Committee involved in drafting the policy.

 

Item No. 9 – Proposed 2019-2020 Fees and Charges – the Interim Administrator commented that a substantial amount of work was done by council officers to review and update the fees and charges, many of which are tied to cost-recovery obligations under the Local Government Act and that he appreciated the amount of work this involved.

The motion was put and carried.

 

Officer’s Reports

 

Provision of Insurance Brokerage Services (inclusive of policy placement)

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

A.       That Tender No. 13074 for the Provision of Insurance Brokerage Services (inclusive of policy placement) be awarded to the recommended tenderer as detailed in the Evaluation Report.

B.        That Council (Interim Administrator of Ipswich City Council) enter into a contract with the recommended tenderer as detailed in the Evaluation Report for the Provision of Insurance Brokerage Services (inclusive of policy placement) for an initial period of twelve (12) months and an option to extend for an additional period of twelve (12) months.

C.        That the Chief Executive Officer be authorised to negotiate and finalise the terms of the contract to be executed by Council and to do any other acts necessary to implement Council’s decision in accordance with section 13(3) of the Local Government Act 2009.

 

The motion was put and carried.

 

Councillor Expenses Reimbursement and Administrative Support Policy

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

A.          That the existing Ipswich City Council Expenses Reimbursement Policy detailed in Attachment A, be repealed.

B.           That the new Councillor Expenses Reimbursement and Administrative Support Policy detailed in Attachment B, be adopted.

C.           That the ten (10) existing electorate offices be closed permanently, prior to the end of the 2018/2019 financial year.

D.          That the net operational savings from the closure of the existing electorate offices and revised councillor support, be redirected into strategic community initiatives, with the advice and views of the recently established community reference groups.  Recommendations on how the funds will be used and allocated will be outlined in a report to be presented at a future meeting for consideration.

E.           That an integrated customer service centre be added to the Springfield Central Library and the new ‘to be constructed’ Rosewood Library.

F.           That prior to the opening of the ‘to be constructed’ Rosewood Library, the former office facility located in John Street, Rosewood be reconfigured as an interim library hub and customer service centre.

G.          That property services branch undertake negotiations to terminate the leases on the nine (9) remaining offices.

 

DISCUSSION

The Interim Administrator advised that this is an extensive review of a policy, the most substantive public implications of which are the proposed closure of the ten existing divisional offices. He stated this council is the only council apart from Brisbane with individual divisional offices configured in this way in Queensland.  The Interim Administrator commented that Gold Coast has a range of offices which are also customer service centres so people can go in and pay their rates and do their business at the Gold Coast. He stated that the cost of running council’s individual offices costs about $2 million per year.  He noted that council is yet to receive the state government’s decision following council’s review of the divisional boundaries, but understood that the multi-councillor divisions model has been supported in-principle by the state and is being investigated by the boundaries commission. He stated that it was clear that those ten divisional offices are not relevant to the future structure of divisions but more importantly it’s the way that governance needs to be delivered in the city and the way that modern councillors need to work.

 

The Interim Administrator commented that council is now looking at having integrated customer service centres in Rosewood, Ipswich and Springfield with the ability for future councillors to meet with residents at any of those offices or at coffee shops or at the residents’ homes. He stated that with IT systems, mobile phones and tablets, councillors will have connectivity so there is not the need any more for a series of dedicated offices for councillors around the city.

 

The Interim Administrator advised that part of the return to elected governance reform agenda of this council during the next ten months will be equipping councillors with policies and procedures, IT equipment etc. and arrangements for them to undertake their role flexibly and that this is the best example of the implications of this revised policy.

The motion was put and carried.

 

Cameron Park - Future Use of Parkland and Facilities - Repeal

The Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council resolves:

That the previous decision of Council, as per the Officer’s Report; Cameron Park - Future Use of Parkland and Facilities, adopted at the Council Ordinary Meeting of 29 January 2019, be repealed.

 

DISCUSSION

The Interim Administrator advised that a report was considered at the January meeting and that this report is proposing the repeal of the previous resolution that council sell Cameron Park to a sports club.

 

The Interim Administrator stated that the report to council is self-explanatory. He stated that in meeting with representatives of Swifts it became clear that the sale to Swifts would drive Swifts down a certain path and that path is a significant expansion of the premises with significant increase in the number of poker machines. The Interim Administrator advised that he was not making a comment about the appropriateness of that or otherwise as he did not have a view about that, but that the key thing was that the decision of council would drive Swifts down that path and that council and the club hadn’t engaged with the community. He stated that he does not have a clear view of what the community’s expectations and views would be.

The Interim Administrator advised that he didn’t want the decision by council to dispose to Swifts to be standing and that this was why council needs to rescind the previous decision and undertake discussion with Swifts about the options. He stated that there are obligations on both parties under the lease agreement that need addressing and that council officers are actively engaged with Swifts on these.

The motion was put and carried.

RELATED PARTIES

Listening, leading and financial management

Purpose of Report/Background

The 2018-2019 revaluation process consists of a full revaluation for artworks assets and an indexed valuation for roads, bridges and footpaths (RBF), land, buildings and other structures assets, and flooding and drainage assets.

 

Valuation for artworks was carried out by Ross Searle and Associates.  The indexation for land, building and other structures and infrastructure assets was provided by Cardno.

 

Revaluation Materiality

Asset Revaluation Procedure: ‘Council will need to consider the impact of revaluation only if the cumulative change in the index is greater than 5% (either positive or negative) since the last formal valuation of an asset class.’

AASB1031 Materiality (paragraph 15)

 (a)     an amount which is equal to or greater than 10 per cent of the appropriate base amount may be presumed to be material unless there is evidence or convincing argument to the contrary; and

(b)      an amount which is equal to or less than 5 per cent of the appropriate base amount may be presumed not to be material unless there is evidence, or convincing argument, to the contrary.

 

VALUATION

 

Artworks

 

Summary of Artworks valuation.

 

Valuation for Artwork assets is based on a formal valuation and the valuer made a full inspection of artwork assets.  A total of 639 items were revalued.  The last formal valuation for this asset class was 2013-2014.

 

For marketable cultural/heritage assets, valuation was determined using observable market prices for similar assets.  While for some cultural/heritage assets that have an active market and observable market prices valuation was determined using comparable inputs of a similar class of asset, but for other assets that have a thin market which have unobservable market prices rely on a combination of observable and unobservable inputs.   A copy of artworks assets indexation report is attached in Attachment 1.

 

 

 

INDEXATION

Summary of land, building and other structures, and infrastructure assets indexation results.

The above table reports the net replacement cost for 2018-2019 as per Cardno’s indexation files which determines the movement in asset value.  Please note that Table 4.3 in Attachment 3: 2018-2019 Infrastructure Assets Valuation Report – Cardno reports the gross replacement cost for 2018-2019.

 

Land

A desktop valuation (indexation) for land was conducted for the year end, 30 June 2019. Valuation for existing land assets remained unchanged in 2019.

 

Cardno also formally valued 41 land assets not previously recorded in the fixed asset register. These are donated parcels of land identified through a land reconciliation exercise performed in January 2019. It was agreed that the land be recorded in the fixed asset register at the fair value provided by Cardno in this year’s valuation.  A copy of land indexation report is attached in Attachment 2.

 

 

INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS (Buildings and Other Structures, Flooding and Drainage, Roads Bridges and Footpaths)

This year’s indexation is similar to past infrastructure valuations, which is based on Council’s Asset Management Data (physical asset register) to enable the valuer to use quantitative information to calculate asset values. The fixed asset register therefore only records financial information.

 

Cardno attributes the increase in index movement of 2.97% for buildings and other structures assets and 0.53% for flooding and drainage assets to an increase in unit rates for construction materials. 

 

Also, Cardno attributes the increase in index movement of 5.44% for roads, bridges and footpaths to a change in unit rates for construction materials. In particular, there is an increase in unit rates for construction materials relating to concrete and road formation (sealed and unsealed).  However, for bridges the increase of 4.72% is due to a change in materials for 10 bridges. Council assessed the 5.44% increase for roads, bridges and footpaths as material and will apply the valuation increment to the roads, bridges and footpaths asset class in fixed asset register.  A copy of infrastructure assets indexation report is attached in Attachment 3.

 

Further to the review carried out by Business Accounting, Council’s Asset Management officers have undertaken a review of the revaluation process as well as the report provided by Cardno.  A copy of the report from ICC’s Asset Management Team is attached in Attachment 4.

 

There were no major issues identified across all asset classes in this year’s valuation exercise.

Financial/RESOURCE IMPLICATIONS

No relevance to this report.

RISK MANAGEMENT IMPLICATIONS

The risk in not approving the recommendation would result in Council not be complying with Australian Accounting Standards. 

AASB 116 Property, Plant and Equipment require assets to be revalued to ensure that the carrying amount of the assets do not differ materially from their fair value at the end of each reporting period.

 

AASB13 Fair Value defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

Legal/Policy Basis

This report and its recommendations are consistent with the following legislative provisions:

Local Government Act 2009

Local Government Regulation 2012

Australian Accounting Standards

COMMUNITY and OTHER CONSULTATION

No relevance to this report.

Conclusion

In accordance with Council’s asset valuation policy FCS-5 and Australian Accounting Standards, Council is required to recognise assets at fair value.  Both the artworks valuation of 15.92% and the indexation for roads, bridges and footpaths of 5.44% are required to be applied to the respective asset classes in fixed asset register so fair value is recognised.

Executive Summary

This is a report concerning the Overall Plan in accordance with section 94 of the Local Government Regulation 2012 for the special benefited area to be adopted by Council in the 2019‑2020 Budget for the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge.

Recommendation/s

That in accordance with section 94 of the Local Government Regulation 2012, the Interim Administrator of the Ipswich City Council adopts the Overall Plan for the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge as detailed in the report by the Treasury Accounting Manager dated 12 June 2019.

Purpose of Report/Background

Section 94 of the Local Government Regulation 2012 requires Council to make an Overall Plan for the implementation of a special charge.  The Overall Plan must be adopted by resolution of Council either before or at the same time the special rate or charge is made.  However, the Budget resolution making a special rate or charge MUST make mention of the overall plan.

There is no specific format for an overall plan but it must include the following:

(i)          describe the service, facility or activity;

(ii)         identify the rateable land to which the special rates or charges apply;

(iii)        state the estimated cost of carrying out the overall plan; and

(iv)        state the estimated time for carrying out the overall plan.

The Overall Plan for the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge is as follows:

OVERALL PLAN - RURAL FIRE RESOURCES LEVY SPECIAL CHARGE

Service, Facility or Activity

The special benefited area will receive the benefit of activities and improvements funded by the Rural Fire Brigades in the Ipswich City Council local government area, including:

(i)       the purchase of equipment not usually supplied by the Queensland Government;

(ii)      maintenance of equipment;

(iii)     additional training;

(iv)     funding of administration and day-to-day operating expenses;

(v)      promotion of the Rural Fire Services in the community and the attractive opportunity to participate as a volunteer;

(vi)     grading of fire tracks to ensure adequate access for firefighting equipment; and

(vii)    capital improvements to rural fire brigade depots.

Identification of the rateable land to which the Special Rates or Charges apply

In accordance with section 94 of the Local Government Regulation 2012, Council is of the opinion that each parcel of rateable land within the Ipswich Local Government area that are outside the boundaries of the Rosewood Levy District and Ipswich Levy District (the QFES boundaries), as defined by the QFES, will receive a special benefit from the services, facilities and activities funded by the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge.  The rateable land which will receive this special benefit is identified in Attachment 1.

Estimated cost of carrying out the Overall Plan

The total cost of carrying out the Overall Plan is estimated to be $423,752.  This includes both operating and capital expenditure components.

Estimated time for carrying out the Overall Plan

The estimated time for carrying out this Overall Plan is one year.

Financial/RESOURCE IMPLICATIONS

A Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge was last increased from $40 in 2013‑2014 to $42 in 2014‑2015 and has remained at that level.  Based on the revisions to the QFES boundaries, the anticipated revenue from a special charge will reduce significantly from that of previous years.

 

 

Table 1 details the number properties that have been subject to the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge in previous years.

The Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge for 2018‑2019 was adopted by Council at $42.  On the basis that Council resolves to adopt a similar special charge for 2019‑2020, Table 2 details the estimated revenue from the special charge as well as the estimated disbursements for 2019‑2020.

$45,544

The estimated deficit for 2019‑2020 is being funded by Council through general rates and is included in the estimated budget surplus for 2019‑2020.

RISK MANAGEMENT IMPLICATIONS

Due to delays in reviewing the QFES boundaries (refer Attachment 1), as well as the high level of growth experienced in green field areas of Ipswich (most of which were outside of the previous QFES boundaries), the number of properties which have been levied the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge in previous years, had increased significantly.  This in turn resulted in increased revenue from the special charges and the ability for Council to provide greater levels of funding to the local Rural Fire Brigades.

With the review of the QFES boundaries now complete the number of properties outside of this area has significantly reduced resulting in decreased anticipated revenue from the special charge.

Further, based on the new QFES boundaries which now include the green field growth areas of Ipswich, the number properties subject to a special charge in future years are likely to remain low, resulting in continued lower special charge revenues.

While the local Rural Fire Brigades and the properties in the benefited area have received the benefit of the increased funding in recent years, this may have inadvertently created a higher expectation that will need to be managed in future years, assuming the continuation of the special charge or similar other charge.

Legal/Policy Basis

This report and its recommendations are consistent with the following legislative provisions:

Local Government Act 2009

Local Government Regulation 2012

Fire and Emergency Services Act 1990

COMMUNITY and OTHER CONSULTATION

The financial needs of the local Rural Fire Brigades have been presented to Council for consideration.  Consultation with the property owners in the benefited area and with the local Rural Fire Brigades will need to be undertaken in the coming year to assist in managing expectations in regards to the services, facilities and activities funded by the special charge.

Conclusion

The properties outside the QFES boundaries continue to benefit from the services, facilities and activities funded by the Rural Fire Resources Levy Special Charge and continuation of the special charge is appropriate.
