CLICK HERE to Open this week's Council Noticeboard
There are many in the Eurobodalla Shire (and beyond) who do not have access to the Notice Board of jobs, tenders, Public notices, and development applications that Council provided to the local newspaper for publication each Wednesday. The noticeboard was ONLY available via the purchase of a local paper. Council did not place the same Noticeboard on their website. The Beagle thought that this was unfair and that such exclusive provision, at cost, of a Public Noticeboard should be free and widely available for all. Over recent weeks the Beagle has brought you the unofficial Noticeboard which has been gleaned from the newspaper and reassembled into an accessible FREE online format for our readers. Council have now agreed to reinstate the Notice Board on their website that you can now find HERE For the ease of our readers The Beagle will continue to bring the Council Noticeboard to you in the format below as we feel it is easier for readers and it also offers readers a timely reminder to have a look at the Noticeboard from time to time to keep abreast of things happening in Council.
