Emu Visits Bushcare  

It’s not every day you get up close and personal with local wildlife but for our Bushcare team this happens often! 
The team was busy removing the invasive weed African Love Grass from Pasturegate Reserve in Werrington Downs last month when something caught the eye of a curious emu – the banana one of our Officers was enjoying while working. 
To find out more about our Bushcare initiative, sign up for the Bushcare Bulletin.

Welcome Evie

Evie, is Council’s second electric vehicle, and is zooming around the City helping Library staff provide essential services to the community. 

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said the 100% electric vehicle benefits the community while serving as a reminder of Council’s commitment to a cleaner future.   

“Council is really proud to launch Evie, our newest electric vehicle which is great for the environment with low emissions and reduced running costs compared to a standard car or van,” Cr Hitchen said.
