  • David Risstrom Thinking Environment: Employ Indigenous People
    author Phil Egan has been invited to attend the 4 March 2003 Committee meeting A considered response of the administration to each recommendation is outlined in Attachment 3 25 A diverse range of views was expressed by Indigenous representatives during the consultation and the findings of the feasibility study and the particular model proposed were generally supported There is clear support for adoption of an Indigenous Unit and an employment strategy as primary areas of activity This is underpinned by the recognition that proper representation of Indigenous interests within the culture and activity of the organisation will only occur where Indigenous people have a due presence and role within the organisation It is broadly accepted and consultation confirms that policy commitments must be aligned with levels of participation if the City of Melbourne is to genuinely reflect Indigenous interests 26 New Indigenous Mechanisms for the City of Melbourne proposes the establishment of a new Division within the City Of Melbourne to be responsible for the development and progression of an Indigenous Employment Strategy and related activities The cost of this approach is outlined in Option 1 below Consideration by the administration suggests that adoption of all recommendations in the feasibility study exceed current Council capacity in the first instance 27 In light of the significant costs involved an alternative approach to implementing the recommendations of this report has been developed and is also outlined Option 2 This staged approach would allow for the progression of the recommendations but not require the significant internal restructuring involved in the first option in the first instance In addition this approach reflects a recognition that the actions required involve several branches of Council and a strong emphasis upon co operation and co ordination will therefore be required 28 Consistent with the direction outlined in the consultant s report the Action Plan is proposed as an initial step upon which future initiatives may be built It is accepted that the strategic objectives and tasks require both senior level scope and commitment and environmental support It is therefore proposed that a senior officer be appointed to drive the implementation of the Action Plan The Action Plan also seeks the examination and development of other activities designed to support change The costings in the table below are indicative at this stage and include basic employment costs for 2003 04 They do not contain operational funds necessary to complete projects or establish positions within the organisation Option One Implement recommendations in consultant s report to Establish an Indigenous Division Implement the activities in the consultant s report through the appointment of an Executive Manager Indigenous Policy and Development Director Program Manager Indigenous Research and Development Executive 1 Program Manager Indigenous Employment and Training Executive and Personal Assistant Band 5 Cost 446 402 Option Two Adopt a staged approach to implementation of recommendations in consultant s report Establish an Indigenous Program Implement the identified activities in the Action Plan through the appointment of a Senior Officer Band 7 and

  • David Risstrom Thinking Environment: Car Library
    for a pilot car sharing program in the City of Melbourne in 2002 The administration has still failed to provide the details of that pilot and appear to be reluctant to take the action needed to establish car sharing in Melbourne In September 2003 with proposed changes to parking arrangements in Carlton I pushed hard to introduce car sharing in Carlton as a means of providing choices to those who might be facing a reduction in on street parking In discussions with both Flo Car Share and Newtown Car Sharing it appears that car sharing will now be launched in Carlton and Fitzroy before Christmas Newtown operate a small less than 10 car operation in Newtown Sydney 18 November 2004 I am sitting at a conference in the City of Melbourne called Re inventing the Private Car changing personal mobility in the 21st century There is a reasonable amount of enthusiasm for consolidating car sharing operations in Melbourne A car sharing scheme will be launched this afternoon in the City of Darebin which is a wonderful development DESCRIPTION Car libraries are the four wheeled equivalent of the normal book library you are familiar with They already operate in parts of Europe and the United States One example of how a car library may operate is as follows An individual joins the car library probably paying an annual membership fee of about 50 They are then able to ring up and book a car to hire for any period from 1 hour in order to do the shopping to a number of days in order to take the family on a holiday An hourly or daily rate is charged for the car and the fuel is topped up if it is below a certain level Cars can be picked up and returned from dedicated spaces that are kept for the vehicles in your neighbourhood Maintenance and repairs responsibility would be analogous to more traditional hire car arrangements The benefit of a car library are that City of Melbourne residents can have a car available for shopping trips and family outings without the need to buy and store a vehicle beyond their typical needs At the moment for people wishing to do without a car taxis are the main alternative Further many families appear to maintain a car or second car based simply on the need to have a car for shopping or for the family to go on holidays One obvious candidate for operating a car library would be a commercial car hire firm who already maintain a vehicle fleet and booking facilities supporting it FURTHER INFORMATION One of the apparent difficulties in establishing a car library is the potential cost of establishment of the scheme I include below extracts of a memo in reply to the costs for providing a Christmas car parking facility By my calculation from the information below the cost to Council of providing temporary Christmas parking was 492 per vehicle If anywhere near this amount were
