Repairs and maintenance are carried out on approximately 118 core service buildings throughout the 13 communities of the MacDonnell Regional Council. Typically these buildings include Service Centres, Civil Works sheds and staff housing. The Property and Tenancy team respond to urgent work as required and plan routine maintenance and upgrades in line with annual budgets and strategic goals.
The Fleet Management Plan sees items due for disposal identified and appropriate replacements sourced throughout the financial year. While most vehicles are sourced from general operating funds, recently eight Night Patrol dual cabs were funded by the Federal Attorney General’s Department. To best service the fleet across a vast jurisdiction, MacDonnell Regional Council has two Mobile Mechanics trucks running scheduled visits to all communities throughout the year to undertake inspections and servicing of all fleet assets.
