Welcome to your All About Albury Newsletter

This month our CEO, Frank Zaknich, talks about the ongoing flood response across our community, the Mayor chats with Councillor Daryl Betteridge, we officially launch our Reconciliation Action Plan and highlight opportunities to have your say... plus lots more.



Mayor Kylie King caught up with Councillor Daryl Betteridge, who has returned to Council after recently retiring.

Cr Betteridge is passionate about being part of decision making for our community, and inspiring others who hold the same values to give Council a try!

It's been a challenging time for many in our community who have been impacted by high-intensity storm and rainfall events, coupled with significant Murray River water levels. We’re working closely with the SES, VRA, MDBA, and other agencies to ensure a coordinated response to keep our community safe.
