General Manager Ashley Lindsay reassured the community that essential services would continue however, there would be changes to non-essential services.
“This is an unprecedented global crisis. The safety of the community and council staff is paramount. As a result there will be changes to our service levels. Essential services such as water, road maintenance and weekly waste collections will continue as normal. However, many of our non-critical functions will be suspended”.
“It really is up to everyone in the community to reduce avoidable personal contact with other people and that includes staff at all our facilities. Our Customer Service Centres will remain open but you should call or email us or use the LiveChat facility on our website this will not only save you time, but more importantly it will reduce the risk to you and your family.”
There will be ongoing updates as the situation changes and a review of all facilities currently closed on Monday 30 April.
