NEARING COMPLETION: Lions Club of Leeton president Karen Bradley delivers a community telephone book put together by the organisation. Community phone books are valuedTHE Lions Club of Leeton’s community telephone book project is coming to a close for the 2016-17 year.

Final deliveries are being made in the Leeton and Yanco area.

The telephone book has been a bi-annual project of the Lions Club and has been a working project for the past 12 months.

This has culminated with the distribution of books to the business houses and residents in Leeton shire.

Residents looked forward to receiving the book as the print size made it easy to read.

The book was also a good reference for businesses in Leeton shire.

Books will be available at the Yanco Newsagency, Broso’s Farm Supplies, Leeton Steel Retail and the Market Plaza Newsagency.

Anyone that has missed out on having a book being delivered can pick one up from these outlets.

Leeton Lions would like to thank the businesses that supported the club by advertising in the phone book.

Without their support this project would not be the success that it is.

Hard work appreciatedI AM a client of Leeton shire community transport.

I am blind, deaf and have other disabilities.

I believe Lesley Steedman who co-ordinates community transport for so many, with sometimes a very limited number of volunteer drivers, should be recognised for the caring and respect that she shows at all times to everyone that uses this service.

Lesley deserves a massive pat on the back for the work that she does.

It she was paid a million dollars for the service she provides through community transport –it still wouldn’t be enough.

Meeting proves fruitfulTHIS week I hosted a meeting with council general managers and departmental representatives to discuss strategic road corridors, skills training demands and broad planning issues in the MIA.

Following on from the successful western Riverina development forumin May, I am now hosting a number of further meetings to more closely refine the actions needed to deal with some of the issues raised at the forum.

The meeting lastweek with council general managers, Roads and Maritime Services, Training Services NSW and Planning NSW included discussions on the creation of co-ordinated strategies that will support the ongoing growth and development of business across the area.

During consultations at the meeting the link between the development of efficient road corridors and jobs growth was emphasised.

Discussions centred around identifying road priorities such as the northern and southern by-pass of Griffith, keeping trucks out of the CBD and residential areas, and by-pass options for Leeton.

With one of the most important and encouraging outcomes from the forum being the estimated 1100 new jobs earmarked for the next three to fiveyears in this area, the identification of training demands for industry and how this training can be provided to cater for the skills required was also discussed at length.

This increase in jobs will present a greater demand on other factors such as residential land availability in both Griffith and Leeton, so work towards ensuring that adequate land and services are in place is also a key area to work on.I look forward to organising a forumin the coming weeks to specifically target skills and employment as part of this ongoing process.
