Residents are reminded to stop by the Council stand at the Parkes Show next week, with staff on hand to chat about our works, services, events and initiatives. In light of Council’s recent pledge to the Cities Power Partnership, the annual show pavilion display will feature a topical theme. The impressive CAT RM500B Road Reclaimer will be on site too. The state-of-the-art piece of roadworks equipment will provide a cost effective and environmentally friendly means of resurfacing and maintaining road pavement.
For all the details about the Show, head to www.visitparkes.com.au.
Enjoy your weekend.
