There will be changes to some of Wagga Wagga City Council’s business operations next week as the country observes a National Day of Mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The special public holiday will be held on Thursday 22 September 2022, with a National Memorial Service to take place at 11am in the Great Hall of Australian Parliament House in Canberra. It will begin with one minute’s silence.

Acting General Manager Janice Summerhayes said several Council services and facilities will be closed for the Day of Mourning but will reopen for business as usual on Friday 23 September.

“This will include the Customer Service counter at the Civic Centre and the Visitor Information Centre as well as the Library, Art Gallery, Civic Theatre, and Museum of the Riverina,” Ms Summerhayes said.

“While the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre will also be closed, there are no changes to our kerbside waste collection services, so remember to put your bins out on Wednesday night if Thursday is your usual collection day.

“You will still be able to head down for a dip at the Oasis Aquatic Centre, although its programs will be limited to Learn to Swim classes, and our Botanic Gardens Zoo & Aviary will also be open to the public.”

Operations at the Livestock Marketing Centre in Bomen will also observe the National Day of Mourning, with no sheep and lamb sale to be held on Thursday 22 September.
