On Tuesday we commemorated Anzac Day, which is our day to pay respects to those who made it possible for us to live the way we do today. Considering the in- clement weather on the day, I congratulate those who came out in the rain to attend the services and participate in the march.
At last week’s Council meeting we approved a loan of $100,000 to the Forbes Men’s Shed. This loan will be repaid over a period of 20 years and will help build the new shed on Union Street.
Also at the Council meeting it was de- cided that expressions of interest would soon be called for community members to participate in our Section 355 Committees under the five Community Strategic Plan themes of Society and Places, Economic Development, Infrastructure, Environment and Leadership and Governance. We will let you know when expressions of interest are being called.
Council’s draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan is now on public exhibition until 5pm on Friday, 26th May. Councillors are very pleased with the plan and I encourage you all to read it and make any comments. It is available to view on our website www. forbes.nsw.gov.auor or at Council’s administration offices.
Bedgerabong Races are on tomorrow and it will be a great day out. Council will have a marquee and I encourage you to come and say hello to Councillors and staff in attendance.
Mayor Graeme Miller
