It has come time to bid our wonderful Farm to Trade team goodbye. When Council received the $1 million drought funding from the Federal Government, we chose to employ farmers. This has helped them both financially and mentally through the last six months and they must be proud of the wonderful work they have achieved. We wish to thank them for the picket fence around Grinstead Oval, the Solar lights around Lake Forbes and fencing jobs out at the Central West Livestock Exchange expansion.
Have you seen the news lately about a few of the buildings in Sydney that have been authorised by private certifiers and now they are finding numerous building faults? Fortunately for us we have great building inspectors who work for Forbes Council. I know sometimes people get annoyed with rules and regulations, but it’s for this very reason we have these laws, to protect you, the consumers.
How exciting the old Aussie Pub site has a new business opening soon. The other new business coming to town will be the 24 hour service station, next to the Homemakers Centre. Work is currently being completed on the service easement and then the site work for the service station can begin.
I can report design work for Templar St is well underway. It is so important we get the drainage levels right for this area, and work is projected to begin in September. I will keep you updated.
