Municipal & Essential Services

Ingkerreke Outstations Resource Services' (IORS') support staff are accustomed to the needs of people living in remote locations and are able to recommend and implement services and solutions that are both reliable and enduring. In addition, IORS owns the plant and equipment required to provide comprehensive services to outstations.

The grant funding that IORS receives for municipal and essential services allows us to carry out the following type of work at the outstations:

Municipal Services

Activities related to road maintenance, waste disposal, dust control, fire prevention measures, dog control and environmental health activities

Essential Services

Activities related to provision of electricity and water, as well as wastewater disposal


IORS is able to distribute the funding between municipal and essential services at Management's discretion. In practice, this means that some services are provided on a weekly or fortnightly basis (such as waste disposal and water delivery) while others (such as dog control and cutting of fire breaks) are carried out on a periodic basis. In addition, some tasks are triggered by events (such as repair of outstation roads after heavy rain).
