Council services update – return to stage 3 restrictions

Wodonga Council’s Hovell St offices and Wodonga Library will be closed to the public in line with the stage three restrictions being introduced by the Victorian Government from 11.59pm on Wednesday, August 6.

Under stage 3 stay at home restrictions, there are only four reasons that you can leave home.

  • To shop for food and essential goods or services
  • To provide care, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment
  • To exercise or for outdoor recreation with your household, or one other person
  • For work or study, if you can’t do it from home

Under stage 3, residents may no longer have visitors to their home or visit other people in their homes.

Other council venues including The Cube Wodonga and our community centres at Baranduda, Felltimber and Belgrade Ave remain closed and the Bonegilla Migrant Experience has also closed in line with the restrictions.

The city’s playgrounds and the Belvoir Park dog park will also be closed in line with the government restrictions. The larger playgrounds will be signposted accordingly.

However, The Cube Wodonga is hosting a Services NSW pop-up until Friday, August 7 between 9.30 and 4pm each day to assist residents with border permits.

Events and venue programming remain suspended but many library offerings are available online and books can still be returned via the after hours chute. The community is encouraged to explore its digital collection of ebooks, films, magazines and eAudio for all ages. Details are available on the library website.

Council-run preschools and maternal and child health service continue to operate in line with government guidelines.

Bin collection services will continue as normal and the Waste Transfer Station will remain open but residents are advised they will need to wear a face covering unless an exception applies.

Planning, building, waste and recycling, animal management, and parking and traffic services will also continue to operate and our outdoor teams will continue to maintain our city’s parks, gardens and road network.
