Coun­cils united with new uni­forms, signs

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil has proudly un­veiled its new uni­forms and branch of­fice signs.

The uni­forms, com­plete with coun­cil’s bright new logo, will make it eas­ier for staff to be iden­ti­fied while de­liv­er­ing vi­tal ser­vices to the com­mu­nity.

Gen­eral man­ager Craig Mof­fitt said the new uni­forms and signs were all part of build­ing a strong and united or­gan­i­sa­tion. It fol­lows the merger of Jer­ilderie and Mur­rumbidgee shire coun­cils last year.

‘‘As a new coun­cil our uni­forms and sig­nage help cre­ate a co­he­sive sense of iden­tity,’’ he said.

‘‘Staff are proud to be able to wear uni­forms bear­ing the logo that was cre­ated us­ing feed­back from the com­mu­nity mem­bers we serve.’’

Res­i­dents will also no­tice new signs are now in place at each branch of­fice and have been rolled out across the coun­cil de­pots in Coleam­bally, Dar­ling­ton Point and Jer­ilderie.

‘‘Our new sig­nage is another way for coun­cil and the com­mu­nity to make a mark across the re­gion,’’ Mr Mof­fitt said.

Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil, which cel­e­brated its first birth­day on Fri­day, May 12, was born out of the NSW Gov­ern­ment Fit for the Fu­ture lo­cal gov­ern­ment re­form process.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers are urged to keep an eye out in case coun­cil has missed any old signs around the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area. Old signs can be re­ported to 1300 676 243.

Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil staff mem­bers Julie Conn, Lisa Bryce and Eden Her­cus stand be­side the new branch of­fice sign in Jer­ilderie.
