Public Notices

It was good to see so many turn up last week to the Seniors Morning Tea in the Town Hall.   Congratulations to Sue Bourke who was voted our 2019 Senior Citizen of the Year, with just recognition also given to the other two nominees, Del Beetson and Rodney Robb.   Thanks to the Nyngan High School Hospitality Class for a top morning tea, and to Abigail and Katie and anyone else from the Shire for organising the week when we acknowledge the major contributions made to our community by our Senior Citizens.

We welcome back to town about thirty of our friends from Stormco last week and appreciate the way their annual visits provide such constructive activities at O’Reilly Park and surrounds for our local youngsters enjoying their school holidays.

Council received a reply back from the Chief Executive of the NSW Government’s Health Pathology Unit, the area in charge of post mortems.   We had sent a very strong letter to this unit after extensive delays had occurred for some local families waiting on coronial post mortems cases at Newcastle earlier this year.   The letter advised “that timeframes have now improved and are being performed within 5 days of admission, working towards a goal of 72 hours from admission”.   Their letter again expressed deep regret for the delays, an indicated our request for an inquiry into coronial post mortems provision in NSW had been referred to the State Health Minister Brad Hazzard.

Council has made a good start to the new cement recreational pathway from the river to the Shearing Shed Museum and Flood Memorial Park.   This will run parallel to Nymagee Street, across the railway line at the level crossing near the Alamo Motel and then run parallel to the highway past the Information Bay and across over the levee bank to join the path around the recreational weir to Rotary Park.   This project is one of the ones suggested by our community, and funded by the State Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

A report presented to our April meeting from the first term of operations of the Bogan Bush Mobile indicated well over 100 children have been attending the sessions provided by the service in twelve surrounding centres.   Council recently appointed the Manager of Education and Community Services, Tracey Hobday who commenced with Council on 8 April 2019 and we welcome her to the Children Services Team.

Our quarterly budget review to the end of March will be presented to Council and shows our position across all funds remains on budget with a small surplus, and the same as to the end of December 2018.  

We hope you all had a safe and Happy Easter.   Please join us for our annual Anzac Day Services tomorrow as we remember all those who served and those who did not come home.
