Congratulations to Phillip Gibson for being awarded an Order of Australia Medal announced on Australia Day. Very worthy recognition for Phillip’s substantial contribution to the Bogan Shire’s Community over many years.

Thank you to all for making our Australia Day Ambassador Prue Watt OAM and her partner Taylor Beggs feel so welcome during their recent visit. They really enjoyed their short stay in Nyngan, staying at the Riverside Tourism Park, had a good look at the Museum and Shearing Shed, photo at the Big Bogan and a tour of the town. Listening to her inspiring address and learning of her achievements at our Australia Day gathering at Larkin Oval must surely make all of us who can see normally applaud her determination to focus on her ability, not her disability.

The large fig tree in Pangee Street, adjacent to the dental surgery, has been spared removal after recent damage to its root system caused by the necessary excavation to repair and replace a badly leaking water pipe damaged by the trees roots. An initial Arborist’s opinion thought the tree should be removed because of the root damage, but thanks to General Manager Derek Francis pursuing another Arborist’s opinion from someone with a lot of experience with these types of trees, this removal has been avoided. The tree still appears to have very healthy foliage, they have a deep root system despite some surface root damage to this tree, it has been braced to an adjoining palm tree with monitors attached to some branches. The tree will be kept under surveillance, however fortunately it seems very likely that this fig tree will remain with so many other magnificent fig trees that are such an attractive feature of our town.

Thanks to those members of our Shires Staff who recently installed extra handrails at one of the swimming pool step exits to assist senior actives to enter and leave the water. I believe about 40 attend the water aerobics class on a Thursday, what a great activity for some members of our Community, all ladies except for Mr Greg Corby – Go Greg!

Following requests from some local businesses in Pangee Street, opposite the Teamsters Rest Car Park, Council will be installing two of the orange wooden seats outside Nyngan Rural Agencies and St Marks Op Shop, sometime in March. From reliable reports, these attractive seats are getting a lot of patronage along the cement bike and walking path from the Shearing Shed to the river.

The Warren Rotary Club launched an appeal, after so much damage occurred to homes and buildings in Nevertire caused by the devastating wind storm that went through in early December last year. Council donated $1000 to this appeal to help repairs and restoration to the village.

Nyngan Community Homes are submitting an application to Round 5 of the Federal Governments Building Better Regions Grand Fund, to build another five, two bedroom seniors’ living units on the site of the former Palais Theatre. Council are supporting this submission by providing the land for these units on this site with services connected to the site. We are also providing funding to assist with architects fees (up to $20,000), a Quantity Surveyor to cost the plans (up to $15,000) and fund Project Management of the construction process (up to $25,000). A strong letter of support for these units from Council will accompany the submission, as will a Development Application for these units, once lodged and approved.
