From the Mayor's Desk - 4 August 2015

Gary Rush Mayor

The completion of the $5 million manganese removal project at Bathurst’s Water Filtration Plant was a fitting project to officially open in Local Government Week.

This significant infrastructure investment by Bathurst Regional Council was commissioned to improve water quality for the city’s residents. The project was designed and built using local expert knowledge to provide a solution to the discolouration caused by the naturally occurring manganese in our water catchment. The state of the art facility is a local solution to a problem that impacts not just Bathurst’s water supply but as a first will be a pilot for water quality improvement for Councils across Australia.

Bathurst is fortunate to have the expertise of a company like Eodo Ptd Ltd and technical support from the NSW Public Works here in our city to undertake this project. It is a reflection that Bathurst has a depth and breadth of skills in a vast array of fields which would not necessarily be available in many regional cities.

The unveiling of the project highlighted skills and professionalism of the staff at Bathurst Regional Council who worked alongside the company to bring the project to fruition.

It is further proof that local government, and Bathurst Regional Council, has the skills to work towards developing local solutions to local issues, and deliver projects for the betterment of the communities they serve.

Council’s staff is a tremendous resource for the organisation and this community and we thank them this week for that commitment to service delivery and professionalism in all that they do.

Throughout this week Council is inviting residents to learn more about Council and its role in the community. Yesterday, a number of school groups toured Council facilities including the waste water treatment and water filtration plants, the waste management facility, the National Motor Racing Museum and the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum. Tomorrow there are two public tours of the Water Filtration Plant and between 11am and 2pm staff and Councillors will be at Stockland Shopping Centre to answer your questions. I invite you to take advantage of these opportunities to learn more about your Council.
