In line with the strengthened restrictions in response to COVID-19 announced by the Australian Government for non-essential venues last night, the Goulburn Mulwaree Council has closed a number of its facilities until further notice.
The following facilities are closed to the public, effective immediately:
- Goulburn Mulwaree Library (including the Mobile Library)
- Goulburn Aquatic and Leisure Centre
- Goulburn Regional Art Gallery
- Rocky Hill War Memorial Museum
- Goulburn Community Centre
- Goulburn Historic Waterworks Museum
- Visitor Information Centre
Customer Service remains open for the time being, but the council has asked community members to please pay rates and undertake council business online, or over the phone wherever possible. They have also encouraged the use of credit card for payments, and will no longer host meetings in the foyer.
The Goulburn Mulwaree Animal Shelter will not be undertaking normal opening hours, but will respond to requests as usual. Pick up of animals can be done by appointment only.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council's main priority is the continuation of essential services. A list of these have been identified, and this will include: water, wastewater, waste collection, cemeteries and environmental health along with on-call services.
Workspace Goulburn, at 56 Clinton Street, remains open only for businesses and services who have leases in place. It is not open to the general public.
Communication with the community is one of the council's main priorities, and they aim to put out one official statement per day, along with rolling updates via social media as needed.
For all council requests (including the Animal Shelter) please call 4823 4444.
