What a challenging few months it’s been! Drought, fire, floods and now a virus which is having a worldwide impact.
Our ability to reduce the spread of COVID-19 will determine how quickly we can get back to normality. We need your help and I’m sure we’ll continue to support each other for as long as it takes.
The first priority of Hunter’s Hill Council is the health and well-being of our staff and residents and together we will get through this difficult time.
I’ve been very impressed by our staff’s dedication and urgent actions over the past few weeks to address the essential day-to-day issues, as well as the complexities surrounding COVID-19.
We’re receiving regular medical updates and we’ll keep you informed through our website: huntershill.nsw.gov.au/covid19
We are doing everything we can to ensure business continuity for our community.
Our staff are committed to supporting the community. Over the coming weeks, you might receive a call from one of our team, checking on your well-being and ensuring we have the best contact details to share any updates with you as efficiently as possible.
If you’d like to get in touch with us, please call 9879 9400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Council meetings are an important part of our organisation’s commitment to open and transparent governance.
Ordinary meetings of the Council are usually held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month in the Council Chamber at Hunters Hill Town Hall.
However, given State and Federal mandated restrictions, closures and social distancing requirements, we will be holding virtual meetings to allow Council to continue to function and make decisions on behalf of our community, while helping to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Hunter’s Hill Council already live streams meetings on our Facebook page, with videos available afterward on both Facebook and YouTube.
We will be taking additional measures in the coming months to hold Council meetings remotely, using audio visual links.
We will keep you informed closer to the next scheduled meeting date of April 27 as to how to watch the deliberations and decisions.
Please remember to limit your travel and keep physical contact with others to an absolute minimum.
Our mandated social landscape has changed dramatically with the aim of keeping infection rates to an absolute minimum. Please do everything that you can to support all of these initiatives.
Mark A. Bennett
Mayor of Hunters Hill
