With the community meeting roadshow all wound
up, Administrator Paul Sullivan has thanked the
Snowy Valleys communities for their hospitality
and open conversations.
“Whilst we weren’t overwhelmed with numbers
in some areas, there was a consistent turn out at
each venue, and we were able to engage in some
sensible discussion around community concerns
and issues,” he said.
“I’d also like to thank everyone who participated
in the sessions. I’ve come away from the
roadshow with a better understanding of the
region and its communities. Although physically
exhausting, it’s been a thoroughly enjoyable
experience,” Mr Sullivan said.
The Administrator roadshow commenced on 8th
August in Tumut and finished last Wednesday
24th August in Khancoban. The Administrator
and General Manager Bob Stewart visited ten
communities across the three week period, and
were accompanied by strong representation
by the Local Representative Committee (LRC)
“We also had a small but dedicated contingent
of participants from the Save Tumbarumba Shire
group who attended all of the meetings and who
were genuinely constructive. I think this shows
an incredible commitment to their community. It
would be great to see that dedication amplified
across the entire council area,” Mr Sullivan said.
Council staff are currently compiling the notes
from the community meetings and the issues
raised as well as building a database of email
recipients for future newsletters.
“I want to reiterate that the community doesn’t
have to wait for a public meeting to raise
issues. The new council wants to have a strong
relationship with its community, so it’s important
that residents feel free to pick up the phone and
call with their concerns.
If we don’t know what the issues are, we can’t
begin to address them,” he said.

10 YEAR PLAN TO
The deterioration of the Jingellic Road was a hot topic
at the recent community forum hosted in Jingellic by
the Administrator last week.
Mr Wayne Bennett, Manager of Murray Works for
Snowy Valleys Council, said that the recent spate of
wet weather has made maintenance works on the road
“The road has a series of winter springs that run right
through both the road corridor and road reserve which
are causing havoc with the road surface.
The problems are exacerbated by the heavy use of the
road by logging traffic, in particular B-doubles,” he
“Our priority is to maintain the road as best we can
to ensure road user safety while we wait out the wet
Heavy patching and resealing works are planned for
spring, when the weather conditions are favourable.
The Jingellic Road is a 32 kilometer state road, and
Mr Bennett has confirmed that the NSW Roads and
Maritime Services are aware of its condition.
“The RMS has confirmed that there are plans for a full
reconstruction of Jingellic Road over a ten year period,”
The project is currently in the design phase, with plans
to commence these major works in the next financial
year depending on funding.
Council meetings are held on the 4th Thursday at the month commencing at 2pm alternating
between Tumut and Tumbarumba.
The schedule of meetings for the rest of the year as follows:
Thursday 22 September at 2pm at the Tumbarumba Council Chambers.

GARAGE SALE TRAIL
Snowy Valleys Council households, schools and community groups are set to join thousands of people
across the country on Saturday 22 October as part of national reuse, community and sustainable living
movement, Garage Sale Trail.
Born in 2010, Garage Sale Trail has grown from a grassroots event to a program powered by over 150
councils nationally. Garage Sale Trail aims to encourage reuse, unite communities, create awareness around
the issues of illegal dumping, provide a platform for fundraising and inspire creativity.
Councils Administrator Paul Sullivan said that the Snowy Valleys Council is proud to be making Garage Sale
Trail happen locally to provide residents with a fun way to declutter, meet people from the local area and
uncover some unique bargains.
“Garage Sale Trail is a simple idea that encourages people to consider how things can be reused whilst also
providing an opportunity to raise money. The idea of passing on what you don’t want to a new home is truly
a great form of sustainability.”
Last year saw 350,000 participants get involved with almost 3 million items listed for sale at over 13,000
garage sales across the country. Registration is free and open to all households, local businesses, schools
and community groups at garagesaletrail.com.au. The first 2,500 sellers in participating council areas to
register by September 25 will receive a free promotional pack with posters and flyers to help maximise your
