Dear Ratepayers, Residents and Visitors to the Town,

 

On behalf of everyone at the Town we hope you, your family and loved ones are safe during this unprecedented coronavirus situation that we are facing not only here, but also around the world.

 

Your health and wellbeing is paramount and an absolute priority during this unprecedented time and we are continuing to monitor and act on the guidance and advice issued by the State Health Department and the Australian Government Department of Health.

 

Please be advised that while the Town is still operating, some delays and loss of service level in non-essential services may occur as the Town implements changes to minimise the impact of COVID-19.

 

We acknowledge that there are many unknowns during this time, but we want to assure you that we’re monitoring the situation closely, following government updates, and doing all we can to keep serving you in the safest possible way.

 

Your patience and understanding is very much appreciated.

 

JOHN GIORGI, JP
