Mayors Message - December


With only a week to got to Christmas I wish everyone throughout the shire a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Councillors and all the staff. Enjoy your holidays and stay safe over the break.

Council was informed recently that it was successful in securing $908,000 funding to up-grade Strathvale Road at Berrigan. The Council will also contribute over $200,000 to this project This will allow trucks coming to and from Oaklands Road to avoid the issue of entering Chanter Street and to also allow direct access to the Berrigan grain receival. The project also allows more of the Berrigan – Jerilderie Road to be opened to larger truck configurations.

The truck wash in Finley that has seen a significant upgrade thanks to the State’s Fixing Country Truck Wash’s program is now functional and opened with only minor works required for final completion.

The Carols by candlelight in our communities were all well received and special thanks to all those that helped organise the events.

Once again I wish you a safe and happy Christmas and encourage you to support our local businesses throughout this period.
