Council invites you to a community engagement session in your town to hear your ideas about how we can work together to make our shire the best it can be. This process will help form the development of the Council Plan (2021 - 2024).
The 2021 - 2024 Council Plan will include:
- A community vision for the next 10 years: in 2031, what does your town look like, who lives here, what services and infrastructure are needed?
- A strategic plan to work towards for the next 4 years: What can we do by 2024 to achieve these community goals?
- A financially stable budget plan for the next 10 years: How do we best use Council funds to achieve these goals? What grants and alternative funding opportunities are required?
- An Asset Management Plan: We need to plan for maintenance as well as new projects. How do we balance this over time?
In addition to the community engagement sessions, Council has prepared a quick survey for residents to complete. The survey provides Council with demographic information that will be used to inform decisions based on community services, infrastructure and the needs of each community going forward. The survey, along with a reply paid envelope has been included with this letter. The survey is also available here.
If you can not attend these sessions, please contact Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or (03) 5398 0100 for Zoom details to attend your community session remotely or to arrange a 1:1 meeting with staff.
