As with any place with a small population, there's always more that could be done and not many people to do it.

So if it's not all happening the way you'd like - get in and have a go. You could make Adaminaby a better place for everyone!

It's our district & its future is in our hands.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council

Community

Council received $20M funding from the NSW Government: $5M for merger costs and $15M for community projects. Interested groups are encouraged to apply for the community component. Call SMRC on 6455 1777 or visit their website.

The meeting discussed many ideas - small and large - to boost our town. There are some great proposals underway, eg a Men's Shed; a training hub (see the Adaminaby Facebook page).

Council

The Council election will be held in September 2017. There will be 11 Councillors; under the legislation there will be no ridings in the new structure. The big issue for Adaminaby and other small towns is how to ensure representation.

Until then, a Local Representative Advisory Committee has been appointed, consisting of:

  • 4 former councillors from both the Snowy River and Cooma Monaro Shires;
  • 2 former councillors and 2 community appointees from the former Bombala Shire.

3rd Round of Funding - Mobile Black Spots

The Commonwealth Government is targetting locations which lack mobile coverage. Round 3 ($60M) will cover some priority locations whic have already been selected, as well as new community nominations.

View a map of mobile black spot locations already in the national database, and nominate new locations:

NBN Tower

Internet coverage around Adaminaby is being improved by a fixed wireless facility.  Fixed wireless is used by the National Broadband Network (NBN) in areas beyond the reach of its fibre network.

The new tower will provide Internet for a set number of premises. The bandwidth available for each household is designed to stay consistent even in peak times of use.

Each customer will need a small antenna installed on the outside of their home or business, in direct line of sight with the tower. An NBN installer checks whether the radio signal is adequate at your house, and installs the antenna.

Eligible homes and businesses will receive more information from service providers (Telstra etc) about costs, speed and quality of service. Your old modems are likely not to work with the new system.

Mobile Phone Blackspots Programme - Improved Coverage

Funding has been approved for a number of mobile phone blackspots including Anglers Reach.

Dalgety and Avonside also benefit.

Quick facts:

Telstra will also deploy up to 200 4G small cell sites in towns around Australia where suitable infrastructure is available, with the locations to be mutually agreed between Telstra and the Government.
