WELCOME back to tonight's episode of democracy live from the coalface of Tamworth Regional Council chambers.
An ambitious $128 million arts and culture precinct is on the agenda tonight as councillors decide whether to search for the lead role to design the hub.
The project has been on the council's bills for years, and as the COVID-19 clouds begin to clear there's hope expressions of interest for a lead designer could have the project one step closer to shovel-ready when state and federal funds are on offer.
Money woes will be presented to the councillors again, as they climb into the millions with no sign of a return to normal interest earnings in the near future.
And, rickety old bridges will be a thing of the past as the council votes on its strategy to maintain or replace them in the years ahead.
There's plenty more on the agenda, so please give the live blog a moment below.
