On Saturday, I attended the official unveiling of the Major-General Kenneth Mackay Sculpture. My congratulations to the Committee for their determination to see this project come to fruition after many years of planning. The sculpture, created by artist Louis Laumen, highlights the rich military history of the Harden Murrumburrah area and will no doubt be an attraction for our many visitors.
I am looking forward to attending the Boorowa Community Landcare dinner on Saturday night. At this dinner, I will be signing a new Memorandum of Understanding with North Sydney Council which will see us continue the twenty year Bridges to Boorowa program into the future. This partnership has been hugely successful, with many volunteers travelling to Boorowa each year to team together with locals to participate in regeneration activities, including the planting of over 50 000 trees. The Building Bridges to Boorowa program is very unique and the long term success of this urban-rural partnership is a direct result of the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of all involved.
We are holding an Extraordinary Meeting of Council regarding the Young Aquatic Centre on Wednesday 11 September at 5.30pm in the Young Chambers. The purpose of the meeting is for Council to explore their options for progressing the project. We are committed to reaching the best outcome for the community.
It is nice to see some warmer weather. I join the community in hoping spring brings some rain.
– Mayor Brian Ingram
