Last Friday we welcomed Deputy Prime Minister, The Hon. Michael McCormack MP and NSW Deputy Premier, The Hon. John Barilaro MP to sign a landmark bilateral agreement for the commencement of works on the Inland Rail in NSW. Former Deputy Prime Minister and newly appointed Chair of the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) Warren Truss was also present.

Council is reviewing our library services and we are encouraging residents to provide feedback via a short survey. Complete the survey online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/parkeslibrary, or in person at any of our libraries.
Council is re-establishing the Parkes Access Committee and is inviting residents interested in representing the community to become a member. The committee plays a key role in ensuring the Disability Inclusion Action Plan is being implemented and provides a forum for the discussion of disability issues.
