what about seniors? I've applied for jobs but just get knocked back - I can't find any jobs that I can do and I would love to have a job but also for reasonable award rates!

School based apprenticeship’s and traineeships is the way to get around this, not all young people want to work at fast food outlets and gives them a taste of a industry, while still with security of finishing school and living at home. A lot easier to finish school, coming out a second year apprentice or a qualified trainee.

Guess they need to train an apprentice for the hair Dressing place then. So many won’t take on apprentice workers and complain they can’t get a qualified employee

With so many job agencies in Cooma they must have people who can fill these vacancies. Oh that’s right job agencies don’t want people to find work

I don't understand this. People are saying they are applying for 22 jobs a month and not getting anything. So businesses say they have no workers, but yet people genuinely looking for work and wanting a job can't get one? Something doesn't seem right to me.

Not just hairdressing, it's all trades. The trouble is they don't want to work.

How do you expect salons to take on apprentices when there aren’t qualified seniors working who can train them?

When it comes to pay rates a lot of employers think it is still 1980....

Sadly no get up and go they would rather sit in front of a tv or play the Xbox 😥

I hope you find someone soon...we all enjoy some help looking fabulous!!xx

Accommodation issues is part of the problem, the other is cooma...

Great photo 👏👏❤️

Community concerns over Cooma eyesore

Snowy Monaro Regional Councillor Rogan Corbett is leading community calls for a disused service station in Cooma’s main street to be cleaned-up, declaring the site is painting the town in a negative light.
Councillor Corbett believes the eyesore, located on the corner of Sharp Street and Baron Street, is in need of urgent attention with visitors to Cooma greeted by the sight of the run-down, former Caltex service station.

They cant do anything for 7 years as it takes that long for ground based fuel leakages to be deemed safe for cleanup, the EPA has to test and sign off the site before cleanup can occur...I believe the Servo in Cooma North had the same issues

So true. The main street is supposed to invite tourists to stop. Not give them the impression that we don't care about our town. Let's hope they don't venture down Commission Street and see what use to be Dodds Hotel. That place really needs attention as well.

Have a look at the view from the ex servos window towards back car park as well. Embarrassing 😣 not only to us who live here but visitors as well.

😂😂😂 oh dear god Cooma. You only have take away, servos and pubs. How about something for kids to do all year around or better yet somewhere to be able to buy cheap clothes f like a kmart hub or big W. We DONT need anymore food or fuel. Cooma isnt appealing at all to stop at. But dont expect the old farts on the council to understand anything when it comes to young kids and families.

Caltex closed down the service station. So what responsibility do they have to clean up the site?

Reminds me of Grafton..it has the same problem.. bloody ugly.. but Grafton council won't do anything about it...(makes Grafton look like its in decline ?)..

You’re kidding yourself if you think that’s the only site that needs to be cleaned up, or is the only eyesore greeting visitors to Cooma. Council have got no one to blame but themselves for the rundown state of the main street of Cooma, from the eye sore of the self service BP to the rundown looking birdsnest centre. It is such an embarrassment, especially when Cooma is supposed to be the gateway to the snowy mountains. Shame on the current and previous councillors that let this town with so much potential to become so run down

Really ? What do you except them to do ? It’s all been fenced off , the signs have been taken down . There is no rubbish laying around .

I think the fencing and weeds make the site look worse. The site seems to be well boarded up. Why the fencing ? Safety, security or Council regulation.

Great spot to move the bowling club!!!

Sadly councils everywhere are falling short of their responsibilities pay themselves too much and do little. 😥😏

Love coming home to my old town. I was very disappointed with what I saw driving in hope this is resolved very soon

Really not the main issue in this town, the whole place is becoming a eyesore starting with the rate payer sign just out of town that never works. How much of our money was wasted on that and the stupid flag that rip in the high winds we get

Somebody must know the reasons why it’s boarded and fenced and what’s to happen next with the place? And does anyone know what’s going into the old target store?

Maybe John Barilaro or the emergency services minister could suggest building Cooma a new Police Station or Ambulance Station on that site.

How about turning it into something fun for kids to do? Don’t think this town needs another servo or take away 🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️

Maybe the council should look after more important things so long as the site is safe

Why doesnt the community get together and turn it into a co-op service station.Same as what the people inYackandanderra did

I can’t believe they haven’t turned it into another ski hire or overcrowded accommodation for winter.

True every town has issues. I visit Cooma weekly and I like it. To be honest, I don't notice the 'eyesores'. I notice the beautiful green grass and autumn colours. I notice the helpful and friendly people. I notice the fabulous volunteers who work so hard for the community and the wonderful charitable institutions that reach out to help those in need. Indeed what's not to love.

Couldn’t agree more. I was in Cooma the other day and that was one of the first things that I noticed. Gives the impression of a town on the decline, which of course it isn’t.

That site is a perfect site for the visitor centre,instead off half way up the main and visitors either drive past or can’t find a park most visitors to the area have trailers or vans,this site is drive in drive out

It really doesn’t paint a pretty picture of our town....

Sounds like what is happening in the Bega Valley too. Its all under the same seat and mostly councils.

So your saying it’s an eyesore something needs to be done how about the one up across the snowy hydro ? Like all streets in cooma outa sight outa mind. Wake up council your ripping the rate payers off in cooma

My father who was a Surveyor worked on the Snowy Mountains Scheme - another Surveyor found the Southern Cloud not far from where my father was working-people lost their lives and the plane laid in the timber country for many years- It's sad to see the Memorial treated in this way😪💛

Snowy Oval has been hit a couple of times, too. No cops around late at night makes it easy. Might have to start my own “clean up crew”.

This makes me sad. I don’t live in Cooma, but visit often to see my sister and I love Cooma town. I also live in a small town that is having a plague of thieves and vandals at the moment. We also don’t have a police presence... it makes you wonder if the government cutbacks are really paying off 🤔

Sickening, and right next door to the highway.Some folk have no respect whatsoever.

Totally disgusting hope they are caught and given what for

What absolute little turds!!! That 'King' signature was also on a car parked in the main street....... Clearly they need a good attitude adjustment.....

They also sprayed over the defibrillator sign outside ochre health in sharp st

And council voted against.cctv cameras a couple of years ago. That worked didn't it.

Just another place that needs CCTV 🤬😡

lock them up no respect

So dissapointing.. Golly I wish you could find the devils who did the damage... Put a ball & chain around them, and make them clean it up. PLUS any other unwanted graffiti on anything around the town.

Such disrespect what is with kids these days 😥😡

No disgusting if caught get them to clean

Put out a reward, someone will squeal.

Bloody Grubbs, it's bad enough for all the junky scum ruining the town now this grub.

Cooma connection win at Kalaru

Getting to the Sapphire Coast race-meeting last Friday was not an easy exercise for horse trainers as the recent heavy rain and flooding brought about road closures.
Remarkably, despite Kalaru having received more than 100mm of rain in the days preceding the meeting, the track was rated a heavy 9 and was upgraded to a heavy 8 during the eight race program... Raced by former Cooma locals Brandon Williams and Rob Hayward, along with Sally Martin and “Dan” Kelly, Black Bacardi has proven difficult to get to perform to her potential.
