Councillor pursues plan to scrutinise performance of government agencies, NGOs

Above: Cr Steve Brown at the turnoff (in progress) into the new suburb of Kilgariff. He says council should make sure the development of affordable residential land there becomes a top priority for the NT Government.

 

Publicly funded institutions will be getting marks on a monthly basis for what they are doing – or not doing – for Alice Springs, if newly elected Councillor Steve Brown gets his way.

"We'll be marking them up or down," he says, "and the results will be made public."
This evaluation of "key performance indicators" will embrace Federal, state and local government instrumentalities and departments, as well as the myriad of local non-government agencies (NGOs) funded from the public purse, including Aboriginal organisations.
Performance will be judged from the perspective of the town council "because it is the town's principal elected body" and would be in charge of the initiative. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
