Councils united with new uniforms, signs
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.
