Cancellation of Council Meeting

Hawkesbury City Council wishes to advise that the Council Meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, 11 February 2020 has been cancelled.

The wet weather conditions over the weekend have resulted in moderate flooding of the Hawkesbury River.  The Windsor, North Richmond and Yarramundi Bridges are currently covered by floodwater and are likely to require inspections and maintenance works before they can be re-opened.

Further thunderstorms are also forecast for the next 24 hours and, as a consequence, the bridges are unlikely to be open to traffic in time for tomorrow evening’s Council meeting.

The closure of the bridges would make it difficult for some community members and Councillors to attend the Council Meeting. There are a number of items on tomorrow’s Council Agenda that relate to properties west of the river which may be items m of interest to residents who reside in that area. Considering these factors, the Council Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 11 February 2020 has been cancelled.

At this point in time, it is anticipated that the Agenda Items listed for 11 February 2020 will be considered at an Extraordinary Meeting to be held on Tuesday, 18 February 2020.

If you have any queries regarding this matter please contact Ms Tracey Easterbrook on 4560 4500.
