Council Meetings

On 12 May 2016, the Premier of NSW, The Hon Mike Baird MP, made the Local Government (Council Amalgamations) Proclamation 2016 under the Local Government Act 1993, whereby Murray Shire Council and Wakool Shire Council were amalgamated to constitute the new area to be known as Murray River Council, effective immediately.

MURRAY RIVER COUNCIL meets on the third Tuesday of every month, commencing at 1:00pm, unless otherwise advertised, alternating between Barham (Riverside Reception Centre, 15 Murray Street); Mathoura (Multi-Function Room, Mathoura Visitor & Business Centre, Cobb Highway); Moulamein (Moulamein Bowling Club, Endeavour Drive); and Moama (Moama Seniors Community Centre, Martin Street).

The advantages of this meeting cycle are twofold. Firstly, it enables Councillors to remain well informed about a variety of local issues, enabling them to make the decisions that will shape the future of the Murray Shire. Secondly, these meetings provide members of the public with a regular opportunity to observe their Council at work.

Council meetings are open to the public and a gallery copy of the Agenda is available on the day of the meeting.
