A Message from the General Manager: 17 November 2021

This month’s council meeting, held on Wednesday 17 November, marked the final meeting for this term of council.

In Dungog Shire, this term commenced in September 2017 and will conclude on 4 December 2021, when local government elections are held across NSW. The first meeting of the new council will be held on Wednesday 22 December 2021.

At this month’s meeting, we thanked all current councillors for their service to the Dungog Shire community and wished them every success in all future endeavours.

You can watch a live stream of the end of term meeting on council’s Facebook page.

At this meeting, council endorsed its Annual Report 2020-21 which includes the End of Term Report (EOTR), State of the Environment (SOE) Report and Audited Annual Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2021.

The Annual Report responds to the actions listed in council’s Operational Plan to outline council’s progress against these actions. In each year a local government election is held, council must also include its EOTR in its Annual Report.

The EOTR outlines council’s achievements in implementing the Community Strategic Plan over the previous four years and responds to the strategic goals of the organisation. 

Where required, the layout and formatting of these documents will be updated to enable presentation to the community. Once finalised, the full report will be placed on council’s website for public viewing.

A lot has been happening in the shire over this period, so I encourage everyone to check it out! 

For any other happenings in the shire, please contact council via phone on 4995 7777 or by email on shirecouncil@dungog.nsw.gov.au
