29 September 2016 Community is Funds Winner
More than $162,000 in donations and rates subsidies has been allocated by Council for 2016/2017 to a wide variety of local groups that provide support services, run facilities and clubs or put on events for the wider community.

 

“Council works hard to make sure the community has the best services we can provide, but there are many people out there quietly doing a huge amount for residents too,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

 

“It’s great that we’re also able to help those groups by giving them donations, waiving certain charges and also offering rate subsidies.”
