COVID-19 Vaccination Response
The way that our residents have rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated in such large numbers makes me incredibly proud to be representing The Hills Shire. Our local government area is leading the way in getting through this pandemic with the highest vaccination rates in the country. Due to our collective efforts we'll be at the forefront of being able to enjoy pre-pandemic freedoms while keeping our families safe. Well done!
Waves Aquatic Centre Redevelopment
After 50 years of service to the Hills community, the decision was made to redevelop the Waves Aquatic Centre site with modern facilities that meet the expectations of our residents. As a result of the fiscal responsibility of our Council over many years, we are in a position to provide a premium centre that will cater to the broad needs of our community, from parents taking their children to learn to swim classes, to hydrotherapy facilities for our more mature residents. Although Waves has been required to close while construction is underway, we will ensure that the community is kept informed and engaged during this process.
Council often receives grant funding from various levels of government to facilitate local infrastructure. Older areas of our Shire require the renewal or development of footpaths and cycleways. If your local street or community requires a new footpath, I encourage you to engage with your neighbours, then let me know of your request.
It is as a result of the prudent management of our resident’s rates that we have been able to deliver the infrastructure required to meet the needs of our growing community. We are proud as a Council to be able to continue to deliver the roads, parks, new aquatic centre and community facilities expected by our residents, while managing balanced budgets over an extended period of time.
