While the Central Goldfields Shire administrators have wrapped up the latest round of listening posts, community involvement is far from over, with feedback invited for two new strategies.
The administrator ’s quarterly listening posts were scheduled throughout each of the shire’s townships during the past month, providing community members with the opportunity to meet and speak with administrators regarding any issues they have within their communities, or around the shire.
Central Goldfields Shire administrator Karen Douglas said the listening posts were a success, with community members raising a number of issues.
“Community members speak with us about a whole range of things, we learn a lot from the sessions. We always have roads and footpaths mentioned to us, we’re trying to get some strategies around those, and if a community member’s last dealings with council were unsatisfactory we talk about that too,” she said.
Two drop-in sessions for the recreation and open spaces strategy will be held on Wednesday October 30, at the Central Goldfields Visitor Information Centre from 2 to 3 pm and at Talbot’s ANA Hall, 15 Ballarat Street, from 4 to 7 pm.
For more information on the two strategies, where to find the online surveys and for upcoming drop-in sessions, visit www.centralgoldfields. vic.gov.au/haveyoursay.
