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

City's potential on world stage

AIME conference

Broken Hill's potential as a unique conference destination will be on show to international markets at the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) in Melbourne next week.

The AIME is a two day exhibition for professionals involved in organising business travel, meetings, incentives, and events.

The event allows industry decision makers from around Australia, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the globe to meet.

Big prize for prestigious art competition

Entries will soon be open for the region's most prestigious art competition, The Pro Hart Outback Art Prize.

The competition showcases art in any media which reflects the spirit and diversity of the Australian outback, and this year boasts a prize pool of $19,000.

Formerly known as the Outback Art Prize, the competition was renamed in 2016 in honour of the late Pro Hart and his family's contribution to the arts.

More than $4 Million for local heritage funding available

Dollar ssymbol

Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries is encouraging owners and managers of local heritage items to consider applying for more than $4 million in funding for local conservation projects. Kevin Humphries said these grants were designed to help communities rejuvenate and conserve their local heritage.

“I would urge all owners and managers of heritage items, i.e., council/shires, businesses, not-for-profit organisations and industry associations, to consider applying for funding.

‘Rumour Has It’ show cancelled

Naomi Price as Adele

Council wishes to advise that it has been forced to cancel the show 'Rumour Has It – Naomi Price as Adele’.

The show was originally scheduled to be held at the Civic Centre, however the Centre's closure due to asbestos prompted Council to search for a new venue.

The show was then slated to be staged at the Musicians Club on February 25, but Council has unfortunately been unable to overcome space limitations at the venue.

Delay impacts road works schedule

Road construction underway on Blende St

Council has been forced to alter its approach to the road reconstruction currently underway in Blende Street.

Council initially planned to complete the work in two halves, fixing the northern and southern sides of the road separately to maximise parking throughout the process.

However a fault with a contractor's equipment has caused a delay in the schedule, meaning Council must now close the road completely to ensure the roadworks are completed by the February 25 deadline.

Free desexing program on again

Broken Hill City Council in partnership with the RSPCA is offering an opportunity for some pet owners to have their dogs and cats desexed, microchipped and vaccinated for free.

The offer has been made possible through $10,000 in funding from the Office of Local Government’s Responsible Pet Ownership Grants Program, which has been matched by Council and supported under the RSPCA’s Community Animal Welfare Scheme (CAWS).

Council seeking feedback on flight routes

flight routes

Council is currently seeking feedback on the possible deregulation of the flight route between Broken Hill and Sydney.

Deregulation of the route would allow other airlines to offer flights between Broken Hill and our State's capital city.

The NSW Government deregulated four Sydney-linked routes in 2015, which resulted in new airlines commencing operation on three of those routes, and sparked competitive interest in the fourth.
