THE idea councils only manages rates, roads and rubbish is utter garbage.
Tamworth Regional Council is tackling the big issues at tonight's meeting.
Water security for the city has loomed large for most of this year and tonight will be no different as the councillors dive into the future of Chaffey Dam.
The controversial events levy might rear its head again tonight as the city's netball association calls for a bit of assistance to host an upcoming state carnival.
The netballers want all associated fees wiped, but council staff have recommended just knocking 40 per cent off the bill.
There has been a bit of beef between the council and the netballers this year after a fee rise for court hire at the sports dome was suddenly introduced.
If you thought you were shocked at your latest bill, the council expects to pay about $3 million for its electricity next year.
And it's looking to transition 20 per cent of its supply to renewables.
Stick around and see how it all plays out.
