THE first of a series of mega parks, Blacktown's Warrick Lane, and upgraded netball courts at International Peace Park are some of things on Blacktown mayor Len Robinson's agenda.
He was re-elected for a second consecutive term last Wednesday night.
"My commitment was that I would work to ensure that the council provides value for money to the community, and our long-term financial position is protected," he said.
Councillor Robinson wants the community to know he is committed to delivering the best that council can.
"I would like to be remembered for placing the council in a sound financial position and to function on a business basis, catering for the community while making decisions based on benefiting the majority of people throughout the city," he said.
The construction of the first mega park in each of the five wards is one of his priorities.
The mayor noted the council's $377 million budget, the largest ever for Blacktown.
"The first year as mayor has been frustrating in terms of getting agenda items over the line," he said.
"When I became mayor I arrived with an agenda and it has been a battle, but in this second year our program will be delivered.
"More needs to be done in the area of asset renewal, with forecasts showing we need to spend more so that council's infrastructure remains at an acceptable standard and so that we do not leave an unmanageable burden for future generations.
"This council in the past 12 months has made a commitment to be the one which walks up to this challenge and addresses it."
Independent Russ Dickens vowed to serve both sides of the chamber equally after he was re-elected deputy mayor.
"I'll do whatever I can for the benefit of Blacktown regardless of which side it's on," he said.
