    This past week has been a busy very one for the Councillors with many meetings to bring our new team members up-to-speed with the amazing progress of Forbes and the $50 million capital works program we have begun.

    Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating Australia Day last week, whether it was in person or watching online through Facebook. This is our first event in the Council’s 2022 calendar and it was a great one.

    Happy New Year to you all. I know we are almost into the second month but as this is my first column for the year I wanted to wish you all the very best for what I hope will be a great year. I look forward to working with my fellow Councillors to bring out the best in this great Shire we live in.
