Greater Shepparton City Council places the highest priority on the health and wellbeing of the community at all times.
Whilst there are currently no cases of COVID-19 in Greater Shepparton, Council is reviewing services on a daily basis. Business as usual is not an option and Council will need to make some adjustments as per the advice from the State and Federal governments.
“Council needs to continue to provide support to our vulnerable members of the community so services will continue with some changes,” said Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor, Cr Seema Abdullah. “Council is confident that the organisation can respond to this rapidly evolving event, and we will ensure that our community will be kept up-to-date with any changes to our services.”
“We are also mindful of looking after our staff. Our operations are dependent on staff being available to deliver services to the community so it is important that we minimise meetings and other unnecessary contact.”
“I would also ask that if anyone has elderly or vulnerable neighbours that they check in on them to make sure they are ok and have access to food, medication and other supplies,” said Cr Abdullah.
Council is currently working closely with the relevant authorities to ensure that essential operations and services continue. However, this does mean that some modifications will need to be made to some services and facilities. The following information is up to date as of today but may change daily.
Customer Service remains open; however Council encourages the community to consider alternative contact methods, including:
- Calling 5832 9700 Monday to Friday from 8:15am to 5:00pm
