Council moves to a common ICT Environment.

On Monday 22 May Council started transitioning to a common ICT platform that will significantly improve the way we work and communicate both internally and with the community.  It provides the ability for staff from across all Council sites to securely and cost effectively access a shared computing environment. 

This is a significant IT change process that has come after months of careful planning.  However as with the introduction of any major IT system, there will be teething issues as we bed down the environment.  We are striving  to minimise any impact on our customers  in this change period. 



The GMCU Allianz Campaspe Murray Business Excellence Awards are happening again in 2017 and are NOW OPEN to receive nominations and applications.

Now in their 20th year, the Awards honour local business achievement and showcase our finest local businesses and the people that make them great.
