NEWS 17 FRIDAY, JULY 8, 2016 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU MVW appoints new officer • From Page 6 “There was a method developed by Sugar Research Australia that was regulated by the government,” he said. “Farmers didn’t think the rate was adequate... so I ran 23 trials to test the method and found that it was sound.” Now boasting close to 18 years experience in the agriculture and horticulture industries, Mr Connellan said another goal was to ensure “good, solid science” was backing the MVW. “And then extend that information to growers, and just continue to build the profile of this organisation,” he said. “I’m happy to visit properties and kick the dirt, and help with any issues.” MVW executive officer Mike Stone said the organisation was pleased to attract Mr Connel- lan back to the region. “He brings many skills and a breadth of experience that will be of benefit to our grow- ers,” he said. Residents win rotunda fight • From Page 5 Undaunted, Mandy, Jim and Jake rebounded with their own submissions to the knockback, accompa- nied by written submissions from Member for Mildura Peter Crisp, Stefano de Pieri, local historian Glenn Miller and Ross Lake, all of whom also made verbal submis- sions during a hearing in Mildura over the issue in May this year. Garry Stanley and Nichols Point Primary School principal, Jo Mc- Quinn, also made written submissions. Jake said the hearing in Mildura earlier this year ap- peared to be a pivotal point in saving the rotunda. “There was a moment during our meeting with the Heritage Council where they realised that a lot of the structures listed on the regis- ter up to now are all within 100 kilometres of Bendigo, Ballarat, Melbourne and Geelong – there was definite- ly a lack of buildings of this type further out,” he said. “This is a wonderful re- sult for Nichols Point and everyone who put in to save this building. It’s been a real community effort.” SUNRAYSIA residents are being invited to have their say on proposed reforms to the Local Government Act 1989, with the aim to create more efficient and collaborative local councils. Minister for Local Government, Natalie Hutchins, recently released a directions paper as part of the review, which proposes far-reach- ing changes to the Act. This includes: • Extending mayoral terms to two years, strengthening their powers and providing the option of direct election. • Making council electoral structures, the number of councillors and wards more consis- tent. • Putting communities at the centre of shaping council plans by requiring councils to undertake deliberative community engage- ment (for example, citizens juries). • Removing the requirement for non-resi- dent property owners to be voters. • Making voting rules consistent, and providing the option for electronic voting for council elections in 2020. • Giving stronger powers to the Minister for Local Government to deal with individual councillors who compromise council gover- nance. • Improving transparency of CEO pay, re- cruitment, conditions and performance. • Creating a single consistent land valua- tion system for levying rates. During the past year, the State Government has held 10 community consultation forums across Victoria.
