This week's Goulburn Mulwaree Council meeting will consider a report on CBD enhancements and will propose a strategy on paying for the various components.

 

Council officers are suggesting that priorities be made.

 

A recommendation to tomorrow night's meeting proposes $20,000 to allow for painting heritage building facades and then $300,000 for replacement of median strip and the provision of landscaping.

 

Councillors will also be asked for $10,000 to be placed in priority for line marking changes connected with reducing taxi stands and the removal of one bus-stop.

 

As well, the council meeting will consider that there be no parallel parking in Clinton street between Sloane and Auburn streets.

Former Federal Liberal Party leader, Dr John Hewson has taken on the role of Board chairman of the Goulburn Community Energy Co-op, the group building a solar farm on the outskirts of the city.

 

Community Energy for Goulburn president, Ed Suttle says Dr Hewson is well known locally, having launched the Solar Farm feasibility study in 2016.

 

He was also the keynote speaker at the Goulburn Connects business breakfast in 2013 when the solar farm was first discussed.

 

Mr Suttle says Dr Hewson has taken a keen interest in the project and will provide a guiding hand during the construction period.

 

In 2016, Dr Hewson recognised that Community Energy for Goulburn was at the forefront of building community owned solar farms and could well lead a revolution to powering households across the state.

 

Group president, Ed Suttle says the organisation's aim is to produce renewable energy and to offer local people the opportunity to invest in the project.

The Goulburn Mulwaree Council has put a little icing on the Composting cake.

 

It has announced that compostable bags have arrived and are available for free-up at the Civic Centre in Bourke street.

 

The bags are certified compostable to Australian standard and residents can use them to line their new kitchen caddy before putting the contents into the green waste bin.

 

Mayor, Bob Kirk says kitchen caddies are designed to be used with or without a composting bag: newspaper could be used for lining or food waste could go straight into the caddy.

 

The composting bags can be picked up at the Civic Centre between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
