Mayor Claire Boan
Welcome to the warmer weather and our Spring issue of PAE Today.
In this edition you will find the latest news and stories from our community and information about our programs and projects.
As we adjust to our “new normal” with limits on group gatherings, social distancing, and regular hand sanitising as part of our daily lives now, we are also looking at our overall economy, and leading our recovery to emerge as a stronger and more sustainable City post COVID-19.
Many of our residents and businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, so we are working to reinvigorate our City and support our residents, local businesses and community groups to get back on their feet. The next few months will be particularly difficult for some of our community, as Federal Government financial support is wound back. We have provided rates relief options including deferring rates payments, setting up individual payment plans, and waiving interest and late payment fines. This will continue for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, so please contact us to discuss your individual situation and the rate relief options that may be available to you.
To provide direct support and deliver a range of projects, we have developed a recovery framework and committed $2.4 million to be used where it is most needed over the next twelve months.
We have identified seven key priority areas and immediate projects and actions where we can focus our recovery efforts with real and pragmatic solutions. Then, as additional impacts of the pandemic become clearer and we engage further with you to better understand your needs and opportunities, we will add activities to our long-term recovery plan with further strategies and actions.
So please talk to your Councillors in your local Ward so we can be responsive and flexible as we gain a better insight into what you need to recover and be part of a reinvigorated, vibrant, resilient and liveable City with even stronger community and business connections. You can also have your say about a number of major projects and strategies that we are considering for the future.
We have setup our interactive consultation site haveyoursaypae.sa.gov.au where you can provide feedback and participate in the future of your neighbourhood.
So enjoy PAEtoday, and see what makes our region such a great place to live, work and play.
