Council Offices Open to the Public Again: Forbes Shire residents can pay their accounts at Council’s Customer Service counter again after closing in March due to COVID-19. The Council advises a maximum of three people are allowed in the customer service area at any one time.
Entry to the foyer is available through the electric sliding doors in Harold Street. Everyone is asked to wait outside until space is available. Those leaving the foyer will let the next customer know it is their turn.
Council asks that people with cold and/or flu-like symptoms do not enter the building but rather call the administration office on 6850 2300.
The community are reminded to use the Local Assistance Line should they have queries regarding services and assistance due to COVID-19. The number to call is 6850 2393.
