When presented with a challenge or issue facing the community, council's actions can fit into one of these four descriptions:
Advocate = Working to support the community by collecting and sharing their views to government, agencies, organisations etc, with the aim to achieving positive outcomes for the community. Minimal rates impact.
Influence = Helping to shape and change people’s perceptions and/or behaviours that lead to positive outcomes for the community. Minimal rates impact.
Plan = Stating an intention to achieve a goal (hit a target, build something new, get responses from people etc.) and then putting steps in place to reach that goal. Moderate to high rates impact.
Resource = Having enough people, material, money etc. to do something. High rates impact.
Below is a ranking list with some scenarios based on common experiences that Council may get involved with.
