Congratulations to all our committees and volunteers in their organising of the successful Anzac Day commemorations throughout the Shire. It was uplifting to see our wonderful residents paying their respect to our past and present servicemen and women.
The Draft Operational Budget for 2016 – 17 has now been prepared. This document outlines the programs and projects Parkes Shire Council will undertake over the next twelve months and how these will be funded. All documents are available for review at Council’s Administration Office at 2 Cecile Street Parkes.
The Parkes CBD Vibrancy Strategy has been on public display at the Council PMO office in the old CBA building over the last two weeks. Council would like to thank the great number of residents that have shared their feedback on the plans and encourage all interested residents to attend the public workshop next Monday from 6pm in the Council Chambers.
Parkes Painting Group will tonight host their opening night for their art exhibition in the Coventry Room at Parkes Library. I encourage our local residents to support this event as all money raised will be donated to the Parkes Hospital.
And it’s not long now till we dust off our sequins and enjoy a great weekend of fun at our iconic ABBA Festival. This year has already seen over 2000 tickets sold. Don’t miss out, get in and buy your ticket today. Enjoy the Autumn weather.
