Council Happenings July 10

Mayor’s Message

Like me, many of you would be watching the evolving situation south of the border in Melbourne with concern.

As we work toward a full reopening of council facilities and community activities, there is no more timely reminder for us to remain vigilant about our health and hygiene.

As residents of Dungog, we all have the privilege of living, and often working, in this very special place. On behalf of council and our health authorities, I am calling on each of you to play your part to help us protect the health of our community and in particular, to help safeguard the elderly and vulnerable within.

This of course means practising safe social distancing at all times, remaining vigilant with our personal hygiene, including regularly washing and sanitising hands, and not taking part in community activities or mixing with others outside the home if we are at all feeling unwell.

By adhering to these simple guidelines, each one of us will be doing our best to safeguard the community that is so dear to us all.

In continuing to adhere to COVID-19 requirements, council will once again be livestreaming our monthly meeting via our Facebook page this coming Wednesday 15 July from 6pm.

Limited physical access will be available to the Chamber for speakers, in accordance with the four square metre (4m²) Public Health Order (one person is allowed every four square metres). I invite everyone to be a part of these proceedings by watching online. You can see all the action at:

As always, I am contactable and willing to listen to any ideas or concerns residents might have.  To get in touch, phone 4995 7777 or email and I will be happy to speak with you.

We’re all in this together.
