Council, in partnership with Service NSW and the newly created government agency Resilience NSW, will shortly be contacting our shire's residents who had their property or business damaged or destroyed in the recent bushfires to ask some questions about your recovery.
We're doing this to help us better understand what you and the community needs and to let you know about available assistance. For those people who don't have an email address, or would prefer to speak to someone in person, we'll also be undertaking telephone surveys. This will also allow us to advise you of any assistance that may be available or referrals that could help.

We'd ask that if you are contacted you take some time to complete the survey because the information that you provide will help us make the best decisions for our communities.
If your property was damaged or destroyed and believe we don't have up-to-date contact details for you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Council's dedicated Bush Fire Recovery Hotline on 1800 316 500.
This week is National Volunteer Week and it's the perfect opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the generous contribution of volunteers across the country.
Normally we would have held several local functions to recognise our shire's own volunteers but due to current social distancing restrictions these have been either cancelled or postponed.
This year's theme is called 'Changing Communities. Changing Lives' and we think that during this uncertain time that it's more important than ever to recognise the amazing work of all our volunteers.
