Council closing in on free wi-fi

The rollout of Council's Smart Communities project is underway, with Telstra technicians recently installing hardware to provide free community wi-fi.

The free internet service will be available along Argent and Patton Streets, at the airport, and in Patton Park.

The $100,000 project is being funded from Council's Innovation Reserve in partnership with Telstra.

Council to consult residents on library's future


Council will seek community input on the future of the library, with a plan to move the service to the former Pellew and Moore building now officially scrapped.

Councillors voted in February 2017 to put a hold on the proposed move, and tonight rescinded the original motion that would have seen the library relocated.

Mayor Darriea Turley said Council would now assess options for the library's future, and further engage with the community on how to move forward.

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.
