Message from the Mayor

Our place…Our future

​I am pleased to present to you the Combined Delivery Program 2017/18 – 2020/21 and Operational Plan 2020/21

As we transition from 2019/20 to 2020/21, we are facing uncertain times.  We have rolled from one catastrophe to another in recent months; drought, mega fire and now, Covid-19.

We understand that many are facing hardship and we are trying to do everything we can to ensure that our community is safe, healthy and once this is over, we have a strong base on which to build a sustainable future.  

The 2020/21 program of works includes a wide range of projects across the local government area. Including:

  • Commencing construction of the Cullen Bullen Sewerage Scheme
  • Over $5.8m in road and footpath upgrades.
  • Watermains renewal and reservoir upgrades.

As we move forward, we will be working with the State and Federal Governments to develop and implement programs to deliver economic stimulus to the Lithgow LGA through grant funded opportunities. 

We will continue to provide quality community programs which are accessible to the community in our Libraries and Eskbank House Museum promoting the arts and creative sectors.

I wish everyone in the Lithgow local government area, health and happiness, by working together, we can get through this.

Ray Thompson
