On Saturday, 22 July 2017, I along with Clrs Kitchener, White & Cheyne attended the Local Government Regional NAIDOC Awards.

Congratulations to all the winners but a special mention to our local awardees:

Male Aboriginal Elder of the Year:  Uncle Ivern Ardler

Uncle Ivern is a proud Waddi Waddi man from the Wreck Bay Aboriginal community.  He is a respected Elder in Shoalhaven both to the Indigenous and to Non Indigenous people.

He was the CEO of the Oolong Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal run residential rehabilitation service.  Uncle Ivern was involved with Oolong House for 11 years and he successfully secured State and Commonwealth recurrent funding to ensure the service remains open.

Uncle Ivern has worked tirelessly for the past 30 years in a variety of organisations such as The Aboriginal Legal Service, South Coast Medical Service, South Coast Medical Service Aboriginal Corporation and the NSW State Land Council.

He holds an impressive portfolio of academic qualifications and has received an Australia Day Citizen award for his community service.

Uncle Ivern’s experiences, expertise and advocacy have improved the lives of Aboriginal men, women and children.  His cultural knowledge, understanding and wisdom are always at the forefront in his connections with people.

Female Aboriginal Young Achiever of the Year:  Berrima Blakeney

Berrima is a 19 year old Aboriginal woman from the Nowra area.  She is s descendant of the Yaegl and Wiradjuri people.  Her connection to the South Coast is through her Grandmother who was part of the stolen generation.

Berrima has made enormous achievements both personally and professionally that commenced for her at 16 years of age.  She is employed as a Case Worker with Waminda, South Coast Women’s Health & Welfare Aboriginal Corporation.

While working full-time she is currently studying a Diploma in Leadership and Management and a Diploma in Case Management concurrently.  This is a testament to her drive and persistence.

Berrima has a strong sense of social justice and a willingness to speak up and challenge inequity.  Berrima is a role model for other young Indigenous people and she is proud to be part of a team of Aboriginal women working to keep families together and children safe.

Details

To inform Council of the process for the Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre – Electrical Services sub contract under Zauner construction

Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre – Electrical Services sub contract package tenders were called by Zauner on 26 April 2017 and closed at 10:00am on 7 July 2017. The package was advertised in both local and metropolitan newspapers, and tenderers were directed to access the tender documents using the Zauner portal on Tenderlink and 2 offers were received.

 

Tenders Received

Tenders were received from two contractors. Details relating the evaluation of the tenders by Zauner are contained in the confidential report.

 

Community Engagement:

The effect on the public during construction is managed by the project communication plan through written notification, electronic media and provision of contact details for any concerns during the construction phase; these works will not impede the existing basketball stadium operations.

Regional Development Consent (RA15/1001) is approved for the Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre; community consultation consistent with that process has been undertaken.

 

Financial Implications:

Sufficient funds have been allocated in the Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre Capital Project budget for the years 2017/18. Funding is available to cover the recommended amount including other project costs for Electrical.
