Purpose

To approve “in principal” the audited Financial Statements and Performance Statement and authorise two Administrators to certify the statements.

Background

Under Section 131 of the Local Government Act 1989 (LGA), a Council must in respect of each financial year, prepare an Annual Report that includes audited Financial Statements and a Performance Statement for the financial year. These statements must be prepared in the prescribed manner and form and be certified by Council’s auditors. Council’s current auditors are Victorian Auditor General’s Office (VAGO).

The draft Financial Statements and Performance Statement have been reviewed by VAGO and there were no major issues of high risk identified in the draft closing audit report.

Under Section 132 of the LGA, Council is required to approve “in principle” the Statements prior to receiving final certification from the Auditor General. Council’s approval requires nominating two Administrators to certify those Statements, together with Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer and to lodge these statements with the Auditor General.

Key Issues

L Gardner moved, P Dorling seconded -

That Council:

  1. gives approval in principle to the “Financial Statement of Accounts” (as per Appendix 1) and the “Performance Statement” (as per Appendix 2); and

  2. authorise two Administrators being the Chair, Dr K Alexander and L Gardner to certify the Statements subject to any changes recommended and agreed with the Auditor General.

Carried.

BALANCE SHEET

The Balance Sheet shows that Council has a very strong asset position with over $2.2 billion worth of assets that are used to provide services to the community.

Current Assets are $118m which includes an increase in cash balances due to early receipt of Grants Commission money.

Current liabilities are $80m which is predominately leave provisions and non-current liabilities are $37.7m which has reduced due to deferral of loans in 2016-17.

Total loan balance has reduced from $54.8m to $45.5m.

STATEMENT OF CASH FLOWS

Council’s cash position at the end of the year is $103.0m, an increase of $15.8m from the prior year. This is due to:

The cash balance will provide funds to complete Capital and Non Capital projects carried over from 2016-17 and working capital to ensure service provision continues at the same levels in 2017-18.

Performance Statement as at 30 June 2017

Council is required to prepare and include a performance statement within its annual report. The performance statement includes the results of the prescribed sustainable capacity, service performance and financial performance indicators and measures together with a description of the municipal district and an explanation of material variations in the results. This statement has been prepared to meet the requirements of the Local Government Act 1989 and Local Government (Planning and Reporting) Regulations 2014.

A Governance and Management checklist has been introduced for 2016-17. The results in the prescribed form represent Councils assessment against the prescribed Governance and Management checklist as at 30 June 2017.

Where applicable the results in the performance statement have been prepared on accounting bases consistent with those reported in the Financial Statements. The other results are based on information drawn from Council information systems or from third parties (e.g. Australian Bureau of Statistics).

The performance statement presents the actual results for the current year and for the prescribed financial performance indicators and measures, the results forecast by the Council’s Strategic Resource Plan. The forecast figures included in the performance statement are those adopted by Council in its Strategic Resource Plan on 28 June 2016 and which form part of the Council plan. The results for 2016-17 are consistent with the results from the previous year.

Reporting ceased on all HACC indicators from July 2016 due to the introduction of the Commonwealth Government NDIS and CHSP programs.

The Performance Statement results and the Service Performance Indicators prescribed under the Local Government Performance Reporting Framework will be reported on the ‘Know Your Council’ website (www.knowyourcouncil.vic.gov.au).

In accordance with the requirements of Section 132 of the Local Government Act 1989 the nominated Principal Accounting Officer of Council, two Administrators and the Chief Executive Officer are required to sign the Performance Statement. The Governance & Management checklist is required to be signed by Chief Executive Officer and Administrator Chair to represent the status of Council’s Governance and Management arrangements.

2. 2016-2017 Project Funding Carryover to 2017-2018

Source:

Finance & Strategy - Financial Services

Acting Director:

Peter Anderson

Index Reference:

Financial Management / Reporting


Purpose

To endorse the 2017-18 Capital and Non Capital projection changes to complete projects carried over from 2016-17.


Background

Each year as part of the annual budget process Council commits to Capital & Non Capital projects notwithstanding that many of these projects may take more than the current budget year to deliver.

At 30 June each year a review is undertaken of current year Capital and Non Capital programs that are incomplete and represent commitments to be carried over into the subsequent financial year.

Council’s endorsement is sought for carryover of funding to complete those projects that are either in progress but not completed or have not, for reasons within or beyond Council’s control, commenced.

To improve the process and reduce the volume of carryover projects the 2018-19 budget process will give increased attention to the planned delivery and phasing of Capital & Non Capital projects.

This change will not only improve accountability in delivery of projects it will improve the understanding of when actual funding is required.  Where a project has to depart from plan and is to be delayed and this delay will necessitate a movement of funds from one budget cycle to another, the quarterly finance report will list the projects and the reasons for the delay and seek endorsement of the funding transfer. The volume of carryover projects under the revised approach will be significantly reduced relative to this year’s report.

The carryover requirements are incorporated as part of 2017-18 projection changes, together with other recent Council decisions.  No extra funding is required to complete the committed projects and there will be no impact on the closing cash position as outlined in the adopted 2017-18 Budget.


Key Issues

The 2017-18 Projected Capital program expenditure is $142.7m with Projected Capital income $26.9m. The Capital program is fully funded and will have no impact on the closing cash position as outlined in the adopted 2017-18 Budget.

L Gardner moved, P Dorling seconded -

That Council:

  1. endorses the 2017-18 Capital (Table 1) and Non Capital (Table 2) projection changes;

  2. notes that in future the budget process will give increased attention to the planned delivery and phasing of Capital and Non Capital projects.

Carried.


Attachment 1

Discussion

Capital Projects Program

Carryover requirements

Of the 302 projects listed in 2016-17, project managers have advised that 174 projects have been fully completed, with 128 projects identified as requiring some carryover funds in 2017-18 to complete works.

During the 2017-18 Budget development the Capital carryover was projected to be $62m. At the end of the 2016-17 financial year a review was carried out to determine the actual Capital Program carryover requirements. The review indicates a net carryover of $69.30m comprising of $88.90m expenditure and $19.60m income is required to complete the projects planned for 2016-17. The net variance between actual Net ($69.30m) and estimate included in 2017-18 Budget ($62.00m) is $7.30m.

Of the 128 projects identified as requiring carryover funds, 16 projects represent 74% of the total carryover expenditure of $88.90m. Example of the types of project commitments and rephrasing of expenditure into 2017-18 is as follows:

In addition to the Capital Program, Project Managers have undertaken a review of incomplete Non Capital Projects budgeted in 2016-17 that have been requested to be carried over into the 2017-18 financial year.

The 2016-17 Recurrent Operating result was favourably impacted by $9.89m of incomplete Non Capital programs which are being re-phased on completion in 2017-18.

Financial Implications

The program variances and carryover represents commitments that have been re-phased for completion into 2017-18.

The incomplete program, together with other favourable cash flows have increased Councils year end cash balance (30 June 2017) to a total of $103.0m or $27.9m higher than projected.

The projected closing cash position (30 June 2018) will be impacted by $1.2m other operating projection changes.


Stakeholder Consultation and Communication

Project Managers have submitted requests for carryover and will be advised of the outcome pending consideration of this report by Council.


Policy/Legal/Statutory Implications

Section 144A part 1 of the Local Government Act states “A Council must prepare a revised budget if circumstances arise which cause a material change in the budget and which affect the financial operations and position of Council.”

In the context of the total budget, the projected changes to the closing cash position is not considered material.


Alignment to City Plan

This report contributes to responsible and sustainable financial management as aligned in Council’s City Plan objective on How We Do Business.


Conflict of Interest

Council staff preparing this report have no direct or indirect interest.


Risk Assessment

Capital projects by their nature are susceptible to delays for a large variety of reasons including weather, delays in approvals (ie. Special Rates & Charges programs) contractor availability, performance, etc.

The carryover Capital Program will result in a gross capital program for 2017-18 of $142.7m.


Environmental Implications

The adoption of the 2016-17 carryover program recognises the required funding to complete the environmental programs previously approved as part of the 2016-17 Budget.

Index Reference:

Grants and Funding - Reports



Purpose

To seek endorsement of interim panel arrangements for assessment of the Community Investment and Support Fund (Community Grants Program).


Background

At its ordinary meeting on 23 May 2017, Council endorsed the community grants framework and funding model for the Community Investment and Support Fund (CISF). The aim of the CISF is to streamline Council’s grants process and provide clear guidelines to support community groups through the application process.

The CISF grants are available to not-for-profit community organisations and not for-profit businesses.

The 2017/18 CISF budget is $5.648M spread across five program areas as outlined in the framework (Attachment 2). A competitive grant round of $1.613M will be allocated to the Grant Programs and Infrastructure Fund streams. An allocation of $2.805 has already been made through both the Strategic Partnerships and Sponsorships and Donations streams in line with existing funding agreements. The remaining $1.230M has been allocated to Geelong Major Events Programs, managed through Section 86 committee.


Key Issues

P Dorling moved, L Gardner seconded -

That Council endorses the recruitment of an independent panel member to assist with the assessment of grant applications through the 2017/18 Community Investment Support Fund.

Carried.


Attachment 1

Discussion

The CISF brings together 12 funding programs into one single investment model, with allocations based on funding streams aligned with the vision, Greater Geelong – A Clever and Creative Future.

Implementation of the CISF has included the development of a grant program timeline. (Attachment 3).

A number of community information sessions have been held during August outlining all available grant opportunities. These have been well received by the community with good levels of attendance and many enquiries.


Financial Implications

The budget allocation for the 2017/18 CISF will be $5.648M spread across five program areas. $1.613M will be allocated to the Grant Programs and the Infrastructure Fund. An allocation of $2.805 has already been made through both the Strategic Partnerships and Sponsorships and Donations streams. Recipients of these grants have been advised that in future years they will be required to make an application for funding through the CISF. The remaining $1.230M has been allocated to Geelong Major Events Programs and managed through a Section 86 committee. Minor costs may also be incurred to provide for the independent panel member. Should this be required, funds will be sourced from existing budgets.


Stakeholder Consultation and Communication

Community information sessions have been held during August 2017 to inform the community of the CISF. A further communication and engagement plan will be developed to invite community participation in assessment panels in early 2018.


Policy/Legal/Statutory Implications

The CISF aligns with the vision, Greater Geelong – A Clever and Creative Future. The endorsed framework and related guidelines provide the parameters for managing and delivering the CISF to the community.


Alignment to City Plan

The CISF aligns with City Plan and Greater Geelong – A Clever and Creative Future.


Conflict of Interest

No conflict of interest is identified as part of this report’s development.


Risk Assessment

Grants will be governed in accordance with Council’s monitoring, reporting and accountability framework. The engagement of the independent panel member will include processes to ensure probity and conflict of interest issues are addressed.

4. Social Equity Principles

Source:

Community Life - Healthy Communities

Director:

Index Reference:

Community Services and Development/Community and Social Planning – Human Rights


Purpose

To approve social equity principles that will underpin all City of Greater Geelong activities.


Background

The Vision, Geelong: Clever and Creative City-Region was approved by Council on 25 July 2017. A key community aspiration within this vision is that Geelong will be an inclusive, diverse, healthy and socially connected community.

The City of Greater Geelong (the City) plays a fundamental role in delivery of the Vision. It provides over 126 services to the community and provides infrastructure across communities to support delivery of these services. The City also advocates on the community’s behalf to other levels of government to attract investment to meet service and infrastructure needs. It requires that a set of social equity principles are applied to all aspects of service and infrastructure planning, resource allocation and delivery.


Key Issues

K Alexander moved, L Gardner seconded

That Council :

  1. adopts the principles outlined above;

  2. develops its annual City Plan in line with the principles;

  3. requires that all reports it receives account for how the principles have been applied; and

  4. requires that all staff have the skills and knowledge to apply the principles in their work.

Carried


Attachment 1

Discussion

The City of Greater Geelong population forecast for 2017 is 239,003 and is expected to grow to 320,791 by 2036.

There is also increasing population diversity and evidence of significant differences between the community’s experience of socio-economic advantage and disadvantage.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics broadly defines relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage in terms of people's access to material and social resources, and their ability to participate in society. The SEIFA indexes indicate the average socio-economic characteristics of the people, families, and households living in the area.

The SEIFA Index of Disadvantage at the 2011 Census showed that Norlane - North Shore had the lowest rating of all Greater Geelong's small areas (745.4) followed by Whittington (825), Thomson - Breakwater (859.8) and Corio (856). In contrast, the least disadvantaged area in Greater Geelong is Wandana Heights (1,102.7).

These barriers to participation can be compounded by factors such as gender, life stage, having a disability, being Aboriginal or coming from a specific cultural background.

Council has a range of strategies in place to support community members experiencing barriers to participation. Social equity principles will enable all aspects of Council’s future policy development, community engagement and resource allocation to achieve fairness and participation.

Community interest for a pro-active approach to social equity was confirmed in the community engagement outcomes for the Our Future project.


Financial Implications

No impact to budget.


Stakeholder Consultation and Communication

Stakeholder feedback was sought through the Future Geelong consultation process.


Policy/Legal/Statutory Implications

The establishment of social equity principles will contribute to Council’s compliance with the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act (2006).
