Mayor's Column - Wednesday 17 August Mayor's Column - Wednesday 17 August

Council’s role is to plan for the future of our region and the Council meeting is an important forum at which decisions that are key to that future are made, as well as the decisions that they are legally required to do, such as awarding large tenders. 

Residents are welcome to attend today’s Ordinary Council meeting commencing at 9am at the Town Hall, 2 Caledonian Hill. Matters to be considered include an Archery Park at Wilsons Pocket, tenders for quarry products, and approval of a bulk landscape supplies facility at Traveston. An important item will be the consideration of a revised Kandanga concept plan and community land use strategy.

In other news, the sell-out Seniors Concert and Morning Tea is taking place on Friday at the Civic Centre. This is the final event in the 2016 Seniors Week calendar, at which the Senior Citizens of the Year Awards will be presented. I look forward to congratulating the recipients on the valuable contribution that they have made to our community, and thank all those who have been involved in supporting these events over the last week.
