Council calls for PSSA support

Councillor Tom Kennedy tabled a motion that Council send correspondence to the State Government and local primary school principals asking that they reintroduce funding for PSSA sport. An amendment was instead supported which called for Council to send correspondence to the Department of Education asking how Council could support the reintroduction of PSSA sport in schools.

Council is developing a new website to better serve and inform the local community, and is inviting locals to browse the site and provide feedback.

The new site will feature an improved, simplified interface, and also increase accessibility.

"We recognise our current site does some things well, and others not so well," said Council's Digital Officer, Luke Dart.

"Our new site will be easier to navigate, feature new easier to use forms, and importantly, will be far more disability-friendly.

A pageant to be proud of

participants in the annual Christmas pageant

Council wishes to congratulate everyone who made this year's Christmas Pageant one of the biggest in years.

A total of 55 floats were entered in this year's procession, and the after party in Sturt Park was complemented by a busy community market and the captivating Perfect Light Film Festival.

"It was amazing, I've been involved with the Pageant for eight years and it was by far the biggest one I've seen," said Council's Events Coordinator, Rachel Merton.

Active Transport Plan Workshop

Did you know that Broken Hill is an ideal size for walking and cycling? Even if you live right on the edge of town, the CBD is just a 10 minute bicycle ride, or a 40 minute walk away.

We are developing our Active Transport Plan to make walking and cycling more attractive for residents and visitors and are holding a community workshop.

At the workshop we will discuss what types of barriers there are to walking and cycling, and what solutions we can offer to make walking and cycling more attractive.
