CLARENCE VALLEY COUNCIL WARNS OF HARD TIMES AHEAD WITH BIG CUTS TO SERVICES PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE.
Clarence Valley Council says a lot of its services will have to be axed if it's to meet the New South Wales Government's "fit for the future" requirements.
Under the new rules, Councils across the State will now have to meet the costs of depreciation of assets.
Clarence Council's Planning Director, Des Schroder says the depreciation bill will be massive and cuts have to be made to meet that.
Mr Schroder says closing the Iluka Library is one of many options being looked at and replacing it with a Mobile Library Service.
"What we've got essentially is a $15,000,000 gap and to close that gap Council's looking at making savings, about half in savings and about half in a rate increases over a three year period," said Mr Schroder.
"We need up to $8,000,000 worth of efficiency savings and one of the proposal's is to close the Iluka Library and replace it with a Mobile Library,".
