Biniguy Potable Water Project - Building the Reservoirs

The construction was no mean feat and makes for some impressive viewing! The project will not only deliver a water supply for domestic use, but will also shore up the village’s fire-fighting abilities with hydrants installed throughout the village and a clean and reliable water supply provided to the Biniguy Rural Fire Station. This project will make a significant difference to the community of Biniguy, making residents’ lives a little easier and taking the stress out of property owners having to provide and maintain water infrastructure in drought times where water availability is at risk.

Shire residents urged to be water conscious

General Manager Lester Rodgers noted that the Moree Plains Shire is in a very fortunate position compared to some other council areas in the New England North West to have a secure town water supply for large parts of the Shire. “Council encourages all residents to be mindful of these extreme circumstances and be considerate of water consumption especially as the warmer months are quickly approaching.” Council has recently received formal advice that there will be no further water releases until 2020 affecting the water supplied to Mungindi and Weemelah, prompting Council to remind residents in these areas in particular to be mindful with their consumption. Over the last two years, rainfall across the northern half of New South Wales has been well below average with some areas within the Moree Plains Shire Council area receiving some of the lowest ever falls recorded.

Country Mayors demand Essential Energy accountability

Country Mayors demand accountability from Essential Energy CEO over proposed rural job cuts At today’s NSW Country Mayors’ Association meeting in Sydney, Chair of the Association and Moree Plains Shire Council Mayor Katrina Humphries led discussions in relation to recent public statements made by Essential Energy CEO, John Cleland regarding proposed job cuts by the company in the bush. In these times, I frankly cannot believe that companies and their senior management can remain so out of touch,” said Mayor Humphries.  But the Mayor of Moree Plains Shire Council did have praise for her local State Member of Parliament.   “I was however encouraged to see the swift and direct reply from Minister Adam Marshall.  I don’t think that it’s an accident that the Minster for Agriculture and Minister for Western New South Wales got it right.  Let’s face it, we’re looking at two people; one who drives hundreds of kilometres per year, engaging with local communities, listening and understanding their needs, and the other seems to believe that taking 182 jobs from regional families is a sound strategy to ‘right size’ this state-owned corporation. “Perhaps Mr Cleland might wish to ride along with Minister Marshall on a few trips.  Some good clean country air, a series of discussions with the people and businesses that rely on a consistent level of service from Essential Energy, and a chance to say ‘thanks’ to those Essential Energy employees, may be a better use of his time. “Since Mr Cleland’s announcement I’ve had scores of discussions and they always come back to the same three themes; people just can’t see the logic, they can’t understand how this fits with undertakings made by Premier Gladys Berejiklian relating to regional employment, and they always describe it as heartless in a time of drought.      While Mayor Humphries is aware of the demands of Mr Cleland’s role, she queried whether Essential Energy had undertaken adequate consultation to understand the broader implications of their approach. We are all battling at the moment and if the local businesses in my town are trying their best to keep their staff on for when it rains (and it will!), I cannot for the life of me understand the sense of a big state-owned corporation not doing the same.
