Council facilities close temporarily in response to COVID-19

Like many businesses, Eurobodalla Council will err on the side of caution and close some of its facilities until there is a clearer picture of the Batemans Bay COVID-19 situation.

From Monday 20 July, Surf Beach and Brou waste management facilities will be open only for bushfire clean-up contractors, tradies, and commercial contractors, not the general public. Moruya waste transfer station will stay open for domestic waste, allowing rural residents not on kerbside collection to get rid of their waste. 

Batemans Bay Visitor Information Centre is closed, along with the Council depot.

The community centre is open, but only to those with an existing booking and a COVID-safe plan in place. 

Eurobodalla’s three libraries at Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma are closed for public browsing but open for click and collect. Contact the libraries or visit the website for details - www.esc.nsw.gov.au/libraries

The Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre in Moruya is closed.

Council’s administration building in Moruya is open for now, however, in line with the Premier’s advice to limit unnecessary travel, residents are asked to do their business with Council online or over the phone. Only customer service staff will be available at the front counter for the time being. 

Sportsgrounds, playgrounds and outdoor gyms are open, and essential services such as household bin collection, water, sewer, and most administrative services are operating as usual. This includes the hard waste (junk) collection, which kicked off today in the south of the shire. 

These temporary measures will be reviewed as the week progresses. 

Facility closures, Council services available online or over the phone, and links to NSW Health information are available at www.esc.nsw.gov.au/coronavirus
