UPDATE FROM MAYOR KATHY SAJOWITZ 25 NOVEMBER 2021

Tuesday 23 November 2021

Pre polling for the upcoming December 4 Local Government elections is now well underway at the Oberon Showground and will continue until Friday 3 December. I urge all residents to think carefully about who they vote for to represent the community for the next two years nine months.

LATEST NEWS FROM MAYOR KATHY SAJOWITZ 18 NOVEMBER 2021

Tuesday 16 November 2021

After the Oberon Dam level being as low as 33% this time last year, it overflowed spectacularly over the weekend. The last time the dam spilled was in 2016. WaterNSW has estimated that around 1000ml per day will flow across the dam every day for the next week or so, this will of course impact the Macquarie River catchment which is mostly in the Bathurst Local Government Area and may cause some localised flooding issues downstream.
