Message from Mayor Lake
I had the honour to attend a number of ANZAC Services over the long weekend to commemorate and pay respects to the fallen heroes who fought so bravely for our freedom. More than a hundred thousand Australian service men and women lost their lives in military operations carried out in our country’s name. Lest We Forget
Council’s Delivery Program for the next four years and the Operational Plan for 2022-23 are now available for you to see and comment on. This Delivery Program outlines practical strategic plans to improve infrastructure and services, support local sectors such as small business for jobs growth and more. In addition, the Operational Plan is Council’s commitment to the community outlining the projects and programs to be undertaken over the next 12 months, as well as details of the annual budget, revenue policy, rates and fees and charges. I encourage you to look at these documents, discuss them with your local Councillors and give valuable feedback. To have your say visit: https://haveyoursay.cumberland.nsw.gov.au/
Over the past few months, Council has received many community requests and reports of potholes and damage to our local roads. Our teams are responding as quickly as possible to these requests and continue to patrol the streets. So far, Council has repaired over 1,880 potholes since February 25. If residents are experiencing issues resulting from damaged roads or footpaths, I encourage you to report this to Council by calling Customer Service on 8757 9000 or via Council’s Snap Send Solve App available at www.cumberland.nsw.gov.au/snap-send-solve
Lastly, as Ramadan comes to an end this week, on behalf of Council we’d like to wish those celebrating a joyous Eid. May you and your families have a wonderful day, Eid Mubarak.

Violence Against Our Staff - It’s Not On
It’s not on to abuse Council officers. Council is making a stance against violence, rolling out a new program to curb attacks and assaults towards our staff. The program will also look to build on other Council initiatives, including licence plate recognition technology, dashcam and bodycam technology, staff training and police support.
We’re asking the community to please be respectful to our staff.
