Katherine Mayor Lis Clark

Great Northern Clean-up

  • On Saturday October 8, from 7.30am until 11.00am. Registrations will be at Ryan Park. Please wear a hat and solid shoes and bring a water bottle. There will be an esky of water to fill up. Gloves, sunscreen and rubbish bags will be supplied. There will be a cooked breakfast in return for at least one bag of rubbish. There will be other giveaways and prizes on the day. This is a great opportunity to clean up the river corridor before the wet season starts. We hope to see as many people as possible.

Elected Members info stall

  • Our Elected Members will have an information and community engagement stall at the final markets, this Saturday September 24 from 8am – 12.00pm, where they can also provide information about the upcoming launch of the Katherine Town Council Strategic Plan. After many years we will finally have a plan that Council can work towards. It was a community plan of all the things that our locals as well as business and other agencies suggested that the town needs in the future. It is also a great time to support your local markets and come along and talk to our Elected Members on any Council issues that you may have. We look forward to seeing you.

School Holiday Program

  • The School Holiday Program is on again.  It starts September 27 and goes until October 8.  There is fishing, arts, games, movies, a treasure hunt and skating. Call into the Civic Centre, Library or Visitor Information Centre to pick up a brochure or look on our website. There are plenty of different programs for all our young children and teenagers.

Cemetery ornament guidelines

  • Council has updated the flower and ornament guidelines for our cemetery. Contact our staff at the Civic Centre for more information on 8972 5500. Council tried to make this policy as fair as possible, while being compliant with relevant acts and regulations. On October 28, Council staff will do a Cemetery Clean Up Day to be compliant to this updated policy. No items are allowed where it would stop the lawn from growing or obstruct maintenance of the area or infringe on other gravesites. We encourage family members to remove precious items from lawned areas prior to this day. The aim is to have a clean-up of all the old flowers empty pots etc. Any articles or tributes removed from sites will be stored for a period of 28 days allowing for family members to collect them.
