Changes to Lithgow Council Services

By Lithgow City Council
Archived 17 Oct 2021 - Posted: 18 Aug 2021
Lithgow Council has been required to modify the way that it delivers some local services during the current Lockdown.

Support for the community

  •  A 24 hour phone service is available for the community so as to deal with any requests for emergency or after hours assistance

•   Local co-ordination of responses is occurring via the Local Emergency Management Committee – headed up by Local Area Commander Chris Sammut. Principal emergency management organisations, including Council, participate.

•   The Mayor and General Manager meet with health officials from the Local Health District twice weekly to discuss aspects of the health orders, vaccination and testing issues etc.,

•   Local charities have been contacted with the offer of assistance if required to meet particular community demand,

•   Council has made the necessary arrangements for the Tony Luchetti Showground site to be used as a testing and/or vaccination hub, if required,

•   Council’s outdoor workforce has been split into teams to ensure continuity of essential services if any positive cases emerge in one team and that requires isolation of fellow workers

 

 Changed services to comply with the Health Orders:

•    The Council Meeting on 23 August is closed for public attendance but available for viewing via Council’s website.

•     The Customer Service Centre is closed face to face but continuing to meet   needs via telephone and email,

•    Visitor information centre closed

•    Libraries closed,

•    Eskbank House closed

•    Aquatic centre closed

•    Kerbside waste collections continue as normal

•    Disposal of household non-putrescible waste at the landfills is deemed essential under the Health Order. The landfills are closed to the general public (other than transfer stations which serve residents without a weekly kerbside collection).

•    Community halls closed,

•    Animal centre open to the public by appointment only

•    Outdoor sporting facilities open for health order compliant individual exercise only

•    Rent relief is available for tenants of Council-owned commercial properties

•    Lake Wallace will continue to be available for people who do not have a fixed address and need somewhere to lay-over
