“As the year draws to a close, we pause to reflect on the last 12 months.
Your councillors together with staff have made 2019 a year of improvements in the way we do business and deliver services.
I think you would agree there have been noticeable changes.
The consistent growth in the Two Wells residential developments and the announcement of the Xavier Catholic school are positive signs that people want to live and invest in our region.
The Northern Area Irrigation System (NAIS) has been constructed and will soon be supplying water for agriculture.
Federal drought community funding is being distributed to various groups supporting their projects while creating local employment.
2020 will see continued investment and development occurring across the district.
Federal and state government funding and grants will augment your rate dollars to further provide services and resources to the residents and visitors to the region alike.
A big welcome to all the new residents to our district who have chosen Adelaide Plains to work, live and play.
You are valued members of our community and I hope you make strong connections here in social, retail and sporting areas.
Finally, a safe and merry Christmas to everyone and a very happy new year.
