Communities in Broken Hill and the Far West will be among the first to benefit from a series of workshops across the State, to encourage regional communities to take advantage of the $1.3 billion Regional Growth Fund announced in the 2017-18 NSW Budget.

On Thursday 31 August 2017, representatives from key NSW Government agencies will be at a workshop in Broken Hill to outline the Fund’s benefit to regional communities and explain the application process.

Council's Living Desert Ranger Darrell Ford spends most of his time tending to the well-known tourist attraction, but he says there's another piece of our local outback that is quickly gaining attention.

He recently completed work on the Regen Walking Trail in South Broken Hill, a 1km track that loops through the regeneration area.

The trail features seating, a sheltered rest area, abundant bird life, and a variety of native flora.

“We are dedicated to boosting regional industries through targeted investments into key road upgrades, and so we are very pleased to see works completed on this significant project,” Kevin Humphries said.

New push for Patton Park upgrade

Council will again push for upgrades for Patton Park, this time through the State Government's Stronger Country Communities fund.

Broken Hill is requesting $815,000 in funding under the program, which is designed to assist with projects valued over $100,000.

Council was previously unsuccessful in a bid to have the whole Patton Park upgrade funded through the State's Sport & Recreation Infrastructure grants program.

Tree giveaway on again

Locals will be able to beautify their garden and acknowledge our city's tireless volunteers when Council holds its annual Tree Giveaway this weekend.

Council will stage the tree giveaway at the Community Markets, Centre for Community (Beryl Street), on August 12 from 8am to 11am.

Along with the free plant stall, members of the Volunteer Working Group will host a stall so market- goers can nominate locals for the Volunteer of the Year awards to be held later this year.

Amenities at the Charles Rasp Memorial Library will receive an upgrade thanks to a $200,000 grant from State Libraries NSW.

Council received $200,000 through the Public Library Infrastructure Grant scheme, and will use the funds to purchase new technology for the library.

Library users will enjoy the use of 14 new computers, wireless printing, a 3D printer, and a self-service loan and return system.

Exciting opportunity for Aboriginal students

Council is excited to announce six vacancies under the Elsa Dixon Aboriginal Employment Program – School Based Element.

The School Based Traineeship Element provides funding for the salary of school based traineeships in NSW public service agencies or local government authorities.

Council’s Senior HR Advisor, Casey Deery, said the program presented a great opportunity for students to gain real world experience in areas of interest to them, whilst still completing their high school education.
