The Annual Duck Creek Races certainly blew the cobwebs out of the Showground / Racecourse Complex with record crowds and a great race meeting.   Its popularity continues to attract people from all over the state, and certainly puts Nyngan on the agenda for those looking for a well organised and enjoyable event.   The Cleaver cousins lead a top committee that roll up their sleeves every year to ensure the large crowd, mainly of young people, are kept safe and well entertained.   Council’s contribution to this event, and many others at the Showground, sporting fields and community events is to prepare the venue at no cost to the local organisers or clubs at an estimated cost of some $50,000 annually, something that many other Councils charge the organisers for.  

The owners of the Solar Farm (AGL only manage the site) have assured Council that access to the recently opened viewing platform will soon be available during week days.   Currently a “CLOSED” sign is on the major Solar Farm Sign on the highway, as final arrangements are made to allow tourism access to the largest Solar Farm in Australia.   One of the Board Members has told us that a community committee, with a budget, will be established to help manage the viewing platform and Aboriginal Garden to ensure it meets the potential it has as one of our mayor local tourist attractions.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro and local State Member Kevin Humphries were in town yesterday, Tuesday 11 July 2017, as they travel around towns in the large Barwon Electorate.   Councils like ours look forward to benefiting from the recent State Budget’s $1.3 billion Regional Growth Fund sending new money into infrastructure, Cultural and Sports funding, the Stronger Communities’ Fund and Resources for Regions etc.

As we head into a new Financial Year a number of Council projects have recently been completed.   The Airport Terminal has had a facelift with a new tiled floor installed and its interior and exterior painted.   A new SES shed has been constructed and awaits an internal fit out to hopefully generate more interest in our local unit.   Flood damage repairs on the Mulla Road will see the completion of flood damage repairs to our Shire roads from last year’s wet.   Some new seats have been installed at the cemetery and new garbage bins in the main street.

A recent anonymous survey of staff at Bogan Shire attracted a 75% participation rate and showed 86% of staff were proud to work at Bogan Shire and 85% were satisfied with their jobs at Council.
