3 June 2020
Well, the cold snap has come as a bit of a shock after the
beautiful weekend weather we had last week. Winter really made itself known on
the 1st June!
It has been great to see the opening up of two new
businesses in Forbes this last week and things getting back to some normality
especially in time for the long weekend. If you are travelling this weekend please
drive carefully and be safe. We are welcoming back tourists into our community
this weekend as well which will be great for local businesses but we do still
want everyone to take care and remain safe by social distancing.
There has been lots of activity in the farming industry
recently with tractors, ploughing and sowing. Let’s hope this coming year is
profitable for everyone.
With the dining out restrictions opening up last weekend, I
booked and went out for dinner with friends. We were like kids in a lolly shop!
I can honestly say that I think we took everything for granted prior to
COVID-19. I am so grateful now for everything in my life.
Council had a great Finance and Infrastructure meeting on
Monday. We were able to view the Templar Street plans and also the carpark for
Lions Park. I think I can speak for all Councillor’s, we were very impressed by
the great work of our staff. Asset Management Plans are being done as we speak,
thank you to Jason and Wafi ably led by Stefan. These are extremely important
plans for planning our infrastructure well into the future. We have so many wonderful projects in the pipeline for our
amazing town, I will keep you updated on their progress.
Take care. God Bless.
