From the Mayor's Desk - August Council News

Quite a number of Warren Shire road and infrastructure projects have progressed over the last month.

Repairs to the flood damaged Oxley Highway just to the north of Warren have been completed by external contractors on behalf of Transport NSW. Our own staff have been busy repairing flood damage to the Udora Rd and the Marthaguy Rd amongst others.

More than 60,000 tonnes of gravel at the Toucan Pit is currently being pushed up to enable us to continue road reconstruction in the midst of a widespread materials shortage.

Council will also soon enter into negotiations with its preferred contractor for the construction of the new Warren Airport Terminal Building, albeit with a reduced scope for the project.

I have written to the CEO of the National Australia Bank (NAB) stating that I believe that their decision to close the Warren branch of the NAB on 22nd August is short sighted given our vibrant agriculturally based community. The reply I have received is however, not encouraging.

As a result, we are now making a final decision as to if Council will transfer its banking facilities to another bank that continues to support our residents by having a branch presence in Warren. We will provide further details once a decision has been reached.
