Council has joined the Smart Water Advice website service making additional resources available on our website to help remind residents that even in the middle of winter, cutting back on your water use not only saves water but also saves energy, money and the environment. Residents and business operators can download information how to be water wise all year round via parkes.nsw.gov.au
In an effort to embrace new technology and improve customer service, Parkes Shire Council will be introducing a new corporate information system from 1st July. The new financial system means the way rates and water charges are levied will change. Residents can expect changes to water and rates notices, water BPay biller code and direct debit arrangements. For more information, visit parkes.nsw.gov.au or contact Council on 6861 2333.
Amenities at Kelly Reserve have improved following recent upgrades. The $50,000 project saw a concrete floor put in under the barbeque shelter, new all abilities ac- cess furniture installed, an all abilities path-way from the liberty swing to the shelter and carpark, a fresh lick of paint and new gutters on the shelter.
Residents are invited to attend the official dedication ceremony of the new Parkes Peace Precinct located within the Rotary Arboretum on Wednesday, 28th June at 11am. Have a fantastic weekend.
