What’s happening in our community
Friday 4 February 2022
Welcome to the first AlburyCity News for 2022.

As we enter the first week of February, the Christmas and New Year break feels like a distant memory, and our plans for the year ahead are well and truly underway. 

The beginning of 2022 continues to be extremely busy for our teams, as we deliver the broad range of services that our community relies on. We also welcome our new Mayor and Councillors who are looking forward to leading our city, as we strive to ensure Albury is a great place to live, work, and invest.

Welcome Mayor Kylie King

It’s with great excitement that we welcome our new Mayor, Kylie King.

What a month it has been, with La Niña seeing us experience our wettest January in 40 years.

With fallen trees, blocked drains, and flooded roads, our teams have done a great job in the mammoth task of keeping our community safe.

Stay safe around water

Creeks and rivers are the leading location for drowning in Australian waterways each year.

When cooling off in the Murray River, Lake Hume, and other local waterways, it’s important for your own safety to be mindful of the hazards and risks posed by changing conditions, cold water, slippery banks, strong currents, and uneven surfaces.
