Week beginning 6 December 2021.

Last week saw the official opening of the Great Cobar Museum, Sam Farraway the Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Premier officiated the opening and the event was well supported by the community. The Museum is now open and well worth a visit.

The Christmas Street Parade was a huge success with one of the biggest parades I have seen in a while, the Cobar Business Association have done a wonderful job.

This coming Thursday, due to there being no need for an election, is the initial meeting of the new council. There are eight members from the old council and three new people. This meeting is mostly ceremonial with swearing in of all councillors plus the election of a new mayor and deputy mayor.

The agenda otherwise is light, with little discussion.
