Rolling out dog poo bag dispensers
We've begun installing waste bag dispensers in dog off-leash areas across the City.
We're wanting local residents to ‘adopt’ a dispenser in each off-leash area. 
They'll help us ensure dispensers are stocked with bags and will report any issues. The dispensers include information relating to cleaning up dog waste – in order to raise awareness about responsible pet ownership in shared public places.

Supporting NAIDOC activities
A variety of events will be held across the Blue Mountains this month to mark the National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Celebration (NAIDOC).
The 2018 event focuses on the significant role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play – in our community. 
These women – who are pillars of our society – are leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates.
