Like all major organisations around the world, Wingecarribee Shire Council has experienced operational interruptions.
Whilst the health and wellbeing of our community comes first, we remain focused on priorisiting the ongoing delivery of our essential services. This includes ensuring essential services such as water and wastewater delivery and rubbish collection services continue.
Our Continuity Management Team has been meeting regularly to implement procedures to ensure these services continue through this period. They are also developing actions to help slow the spread of
COVID-19 within our workforce and our community.
