LLS staff move next week

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

De­niliquin staff of Mur­ray Lo­cal Land Ser­vices will be con­sol­i­dated at a sin­gle site start­ing next week.

From Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 17, it will op­er­ate from 449 Char­lotte St, De­niliquin.

The move will bring to­gether staff from the ex­ist­ing of­fices in Vic­to­ria St and Hay Rd.

It is the fi­nal step in the amal­ga­ma­tion of the for­mer Mur­ray Catch­ment Man­age­ment Au­thor­ity, Rive­rina Live­stock Health and Pest Au­thor­ity and ex­ten­sion ser­vices of the NSW De­part­ment of Pri­mary In­dus­tries.

The merger was im­ple­mented on Jan­uary 1, 2014, and staff have been work­ing from sep­a­rate of­fices since then.

Mur­ray Lo­cal Land Ser­vices gen­eral man­ager Gary Rodda said the con­sol­i­da­tion of De­niliquin staff was a pos­i­tive step for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

‘‘This move will en­able us to de­liver bet­ter, more in­te­grated ser­vices to cus­tomers, and al­low for a much more co­he­sive work en­vi­ron­ment for staff,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s very much a win-win for us, and we’re look­ing for­ward to serv­ing the com­mu­nity of De­niliquin and sur­rounds from this lo­ca­tion for a long time to come.’’

The re­lo­ca­tion will oc­cur this week­end.

MLLS will be closed for busi­ness on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 16 to al­low staff to set up work ar­eas and set­tle into the new of­fice.

With the new premises will come a new tele­phone num­ber, with De­niliquin staff able to be con­tacted on (03) 5881 9900.
