Council will consider the use of CCTV in Sturt Park after another spate of vandalism occurred over the weekend.

A large yellow dumpster was ripped from its chains and overturned in a rose garden, a bin guard was ripped open, and a tree guard was overturned, breaking the tree in half.

A large industrial trolley was also found overturned in a garden bed.

The Park has been a target for vandals in recent months, with Council garden staff often reporting incidents of varying severity.

The section of Blende Street undergoing reconstruction has reopened a day early.

The works were originally planned to be completed in two halves, however Council was forced to close the road completely in order to reopen the road by the 25 February deadline.

The section of road between Oxide and Chloride Streets was reopened to the public today at around 3pm.

"We're very pleased to have this road open ahead of schedule," said Council's General Manager, James Roncon.

Library move on hold

Broken Hill Library

The relocation of the city's Library to Argent Street has been put on hold after Councillors voted on the issue at tonight's Ordinary Meeting of Council.

The recommendation was put to Councillors by Council's General Manager, James Roncon, and was unanimously supported.

Mayor Darriea Turley said the project had grown exponentially since it was first passed by Council in April 2016, and now had to be reconsidered.

"While we haven't officially cancelled the move, we're going to hit pause at this stage," she said.

An evening of fine music

Acclaimed guitarist and composer Massimo Scattolin will return to the city this week for an intimate performance with Josephine Vains.

Massimo has been praised by critics as one of the most accomplished guitarists of our times and has worked across numerous international festivals, while Josephine is an acclaimed cellist, chamber musician, and educator.

The duo will perform a variety of music by renowned instrumenalists and composers such as Niccolò Paganini, Franz Schubert, Astor Piazzolla, and many more.
