Mayor Angela Evans COVID-19 Update - 26 March

Our response to COVID-19

We are proud to have over 117,000 residents who live across our council area, as well as 8,000 thriving businesses who choose to call our City home. Given the unfolding situation relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Australia and across the world, here at the City of Charles Sturt, our focus is on our community.

We understand that there is significant focus on COVID-19 in the media and across our community – both for our residents and businesses, as well as our employees. With a range of different measures being implemented at the Federal, State and Local level, it can be challenging to keep up to date on the facts of the virus and advice on our responsibilities in our community.

Although some things may change, our commitment is to maintain as many services as we can during the COVID-19 situation.

We are basing our workforce across various Council sites in our City so we can be sure we can continue to meet the needs of our community in the short and longer term.

We are keeping our Civic Centre Front Counter open and are also continuing to offer assistance and connections with our community in a variety of ways, including:

  • waiving all fines and interest until further notice for future Rate payments not made by the due date
  • phone calls to vulnerable residents
  • call and collect options at our libraries
  • streaming our children story time sessions and other events so you're still able to connect with us.

Please check our Services and Events page for further information about what financial assistance we can offer, and how our Front Counter, Libraries, Community Centres and Ageing Well teams are operating.
