“We identified 399 actions across all of our operations in 2022/23 and Council achieved 80 percent of them compared to 73 percent in 2021/22 which is a reflection of the efforts of staff and Councillors working together to achieve results for our community,” Esmeralda Davis, Director Corporate and Community Services, said.
