CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister said we are taking the directions from the NSW and Federal Government Health authorities seriously.
“We are constantly being updated and are meeting regularly to discuss what we need to do to keep our residents and visitors safe,” Cr McAlister said.
“We want to keep our people working, and we have increased challenges, the extra cleaning of public facilities needs to be more rigorous and more often than in the past, our challenge is to meet public expectations and reassure our staff and residents that Council is doing all it can in these testing times,” Cr McAlister added.
