Nothing should be read into a meeting to progress the next phase of finding a National Radioactive Waste Management Facility, held with the Alice Springs Town Council on 9 March, two days before the initial 120-day consultation period closed. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Vote ‘yes’ in referendum or face higher rates: Mayor

Vote ‘yes’ in the coming referendum on constitutional recognition of local government or definitely face increased rates in the future and risk loss of direct funding from the Commonwealth, such as money for local roads through Roads to Recovery and other community infrastructure grants. This is the message that Mayor Damien Ryan wants his fellow councillors to take to the electorate. With apparently more than 30% of voters making up their minds on polling day, he urged them, at last night’s end of month council meeting, to all be present at the booths on September 14. KIERAN FINNANE reports on this and other council news, including more CCTV and solar lighting along the river.
