We are interested in exploring a diverse range of energy solutions, including the generation of nuclear power within our council area.

We are inviting the community to complete an online survey so we can understand the community's appetite for a nuclear power generation facility to be located in our council area.

The concept would depend on dismantling existing renewable energy infrastructure, including solar and wind farms, at the end of their operational life. The land would then be reclaimed for agricultural purposes, aligning with sustainability and resource optimisation goals.

The results of this survey will determine whether we proceed with research and undertake a more formal poll in the future or not. The survey is open until 5 pm on Wednesday 22 May 2024.

Take the survey:

15 May from 1 pm to 4 pm
29 May from 1 pm to 4 pm

Murray Local Land Services has asked us to share the news they will be laying 1080 fox baits on the Jerilderie Racecourse Travelling Stock Reserve from 18 March to 31 May 2024 as part of the autumn fox baiting program. This is undertaken to reduce fox numbers to ensure the survival of livestock, ground-nesting birds and wildlife.

Warning - Domestic animals may be affected, so people entering this reserve should exercise caution and muzzle all dogs. The LLS also advises people who live close to the reserve to keep their dogs restrained or muzzled at all times during the baiting period.

The Travelling Stock Reserve will be signposted.

Thursday 20 July 2023 - Information for Jerilderie residents - Temporary reduction of services at Jerilderie MPS

There are significant challenges securing healthcare staff in rural and regional areas, not just for the Murrumbidgee region, but across Australia.

Jerilderie MPS is experiencing these challenges, where despite extensive recruitment efforts the service has several nursing vacancies it has been unable to fill.

To ensure ongoing safe patient care, Murrumbidgee Local Health District has made the difficult decision to temporarily reduce some services at Jerilderie MPS from Monday, 24 July 2023.

We acknowledge this is disappointing for the local community and apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

Under these temporary arrangements, as recruitment efforts continue, patients requiring emergency care will be referred to Finley Hospital. Patients from Jerilderie requiring urgent emergency care should call 000 for an ambulance.

We are working closely with NSW Ambulance to maintain 24/7 access to emergency care and facilitate rapid transfers to the closest specialist care centre when required. We understand the importance of remaining as close to your community as possible while you are receiving care.

If an illness or injury is not life-threatening, we encourage you to visit your GP or call Healthdirect Australia on 1800 022 222. This is a 24-hour telephone health advice line staffed by registered nurses to provide fast, expert advice on any health issue and what to do next.

The temporary changes will support our dedicated staff and ensure the continuation of safe, high-quality healthcare services for all patients while nursing recruitment continues. MLHD recognises and is deeply thankful for the outstanding commitment and tireless efforts of our nurses and midwives.

While we continue to actively recruit to nursing vacancies, we’re also working hard to redeploy nursing staff from other areas and engage nursing agencies to cover any gaps in the rosters, with the ultimate goal of increasing these services back to their usual state.

We are also working with our public and private health partners in surrounding areas, and NSW Ambulance, to ensure the community continues to access the health services it needs.

The arrangements will be reviewed every month and your community will be updated. We thank you for your understanding and our staff for their dedication during this challenging time.
