Complaints of damage to vehicles because of low clearance at the rail underpass bridge on Goulburn's Sloane street has the council wondering on how to fix the issue.


This week's meeting of councillors decided to direct $50,000 from the roads construction budget to install height clearance bars.


Goulburn Mulwaree council Director of Operations, Matt O'Rourke says he is not convinced the height warning measure will rectify the matter.

Questions are being asked of the state government as to why more money from its Stronger Country Communities fund is being directed to amalgamated councils.


A hint of criticism came from this week's Goulburn Mulwaree Council meeting.


General Manager, Warrick Bennett said it was disappointing that more funds were going to amalgamated councils to the detriment of others which were not merged.


Mr Bennett's comments also follow representations to the Deputy premier by the mayor, who suggested that the importance of residents in the region was being devalued.


As an example, General manager Bennett compared the Hilltops council which receives $127 per head of population with Goulburn Mulwaree's $27.50 per head.


Under the Stronger Country Communities programme, Goulburn Mulwaree council is allocated $887,000.

The Goulburn Mulwaree Council is awaiting a formal report on hazardous materials discovered in the historic St Clair Cottage in Sloane street.


The report pertains to a HAZMAT assessment performed in recent weeks.


This week's meeting of council was told that asbestos containing materials have been found throughout the Villa and Coach House at St Clair.


In conjunction with the HAZMAT report, a separate environmental assessment has been made on hygiene conditions due to high level of mould growth in some parts.


A priority of proposed works at St Clair shows new roof and guttering, and sub-floor ventilation at the top of the list followed by asbestos and mould removal.
