It looks like we will be in the current Cov-id-19 restrictions for a while longer with the numbers still quite high in the State. Thanks again to all of you who are trying really hard to abide by these rules.
I met with the NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard this week regarding our request for a new operating theatre for the Forbes hospital. We saved the NSW Government $20-$30 million dollars when we built our hospital, we chose to have the old hospital converted to house the Ambulatory services. Here we are looking for a couple of million dollars to build a new operating facility. This is such an important asset for our community, we will not accept a renovation to the existing one! I have made this very clear to the minister and I wait to hear the Health Department’s response.
Can I remind everyone to put your pets on a leash whilst in a public space. Also please pick up after your dogs. We are giving pet owners free bags. Just pop into reception at Town Hall and ask for one.
