General Business. 

  • Will seek "new funding" means in future meet with Premier 
    • We also need to look at seeking "grants" via Jeremy Rockcliffe's idea of an "allocation " per year where we raise an invoice as an operating fund!
    • Still have issue with MAIB re Stats on Motorcycle Crashes. Act apparently states unlicenced and unregistered vehicles should not be considered for payment. 
    • approximately 5,000 Riders come to Tassie via the Spirit of Tasmania each year. 
    • Danny raised Kentish/Latrobe Community road safety meets. That is, why do other Councils not do the same? Danny to pursue West Tamar and Roger to pursue Meander and Kentish/Latrobe. 
    • Roger raised point re given one task to do but Paul did it for him when he asked how to go about it. Meeting agreed we need members to be able to do tasks - share knowledge where we can.
