Changes to the Mansfield roundabout planting, that will ensure a year-round colourful welcome to Mansfield, are just one of the ways in which Mansfield Shire Council continues to operate as usual.

Mayor, Cr Marg Attley OAM said while the office has been closed for face-to-face service and several services have been closed (details on Council’s website), staff are continuing to keep as many Council services running as possible.

“Some, like the Parks and Gardens team can continue to work outside in line with social distancing requirements. Plantings at the roundabout will take place in a couple of weeks’ time,” Cr Attley said.

“We’ll all be looking forward to the colour in spring; nemesias, tulips and alyssum,” she said.

Parks and Gardens staff are also continuing maintenance, leaf collection and mowing at sporting facilities and other public spaces.

“Some of what Council does is being adjusted. However, the Town Teams continue to service ongoing needs such as enlivening street furniture and the Road Teams continue delivering on their maintenance schedules.

Cr Attley said roadworks are continuing.

Road grading is, or will soon be, taking place on the Howqua track and Wild Dog Rd, in Maindample - McKees Rd, Royaltown Rd and Eighty Acre Rd, Goughs Bay town roads and Walshes Road.

“All office-based staff are continuing in their roles or have been seconded internally to areas where they are needed. Many of them are working from home.”
