Eurobodalla Shire Council has announced it will close some of its facilities until a clearer picture emerges from the current Batemans Bay COVID-19 cluster. The council says the measures are temporary and will be reviewed as this week progresses.
From Monday, 20 July, the waste management facilities at Surf Beach and Brou will only be open for bushfire clean-up contractors, tradies and commercial contractors, not the general public. Moruya Transfer Station will stay open for domestic waste, allowing rural residents who are not on kerbside collection to get rid of their waste.
Batemans Bay Visitor Information Centre is currently closed, along with the town’s council depot.
The Batemans Bay Community Centre is open, but only to people with an existing booking and a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place.
Eurobodalla’s three libraries at Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma are closed for public browsing, but open for click and collect. For details, contact the libraries directly or visit Eurobodalla Shire Council’s website.
The Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre in Moruya is closed.
Council’s administration building in Moruya is open, however in line with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s advice to limit unnecessary travel within the state, residents are asked to do their business with council online or over the phone. Only customer service staff are currently available at the front counter.
Sportsgrounds, playgrounds and outdoor gyms are open, and essential services such as household bin collection, water, sewerage and most administrative services are operating as usual. This includes Eurobodalla Shire Council’s hard waste collection, which commenced this week in the south of the shire.
