It has been a busy week fulfilling executive roles for National Parks and the Country Mayor’s Association, and making sure our voice was heard at the Central NSW Joint Council’s Organisation.
It is vitally important for Forbes Shire Council to be a part of these larger regional and state executive bodies to keep us connected and up to date.
Our roads, particularly our unsealed roads, are really impacted at the moment with all this rain and water over roads. Our unsealed roads have suffered substantial and ongoing damage due to heavy rain.
Council staff are working with community to identify, report and repair these roads as much as we can. Please bear with us as it is a huge job.
Roads are a major and expensive asset within Council and it is a job almost 365 days of the year maintaining them.
Drivers are reminded to not drive around roads closed signs, it is for your own safety, it is in fact an offence and can cause further damage to roads and put back our works program even more.
Council’s CBD Masterplan implementation continues with a preliminary fitting conducted on Saturday for the pergolas in Templar Street, so watch for the signs – no roads will be closed. The posts will be sent for powder coating before the final installation.
The CBD Masterplan aims to improve, beautify and revitalize the Forbes CBD and integrates connectivity, tourism, art and culture.
