COVID affecting Council too

Council, like many businesses in our region, is experiencing staff shortages due to the latest surge in COVID-19 cases.

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said the Council is no different to other businesses in the region dealing with the fall out of the current pandemic.

“Our community and customers are at the centre of everything we do and while Council staff are experiencing shortages, we are aiming to have a continuity of service,” Cr Findley said.

What people may see in the community is the grass not being mowed on time, the Recycling & Waste Depots closed temporarily, your bin not picked up on the scheduled day, or perhaps your regular gym instructor isn’t available to take the class.”

“If a service is missed, we will get to it as soon as possible, we ask that the community be patient as staff do their best with the staff that they have available,” said Cr Findley.

We encourage everyone to stay COVID safe by using Council’s online services:

The health and safety of our staff and community are our priority, and we thank customers for their understanding during these challenging times.
