Council's Online Services Are The Way To Go

Gympie Regional Council is asking the community to use online services.

While Council contact centres remain open at the Gympie Town Hall and Kilkivan office, residents and customers are being urged to use phone, email and online services.

If customers need to attend these centres in person, Council is respectfully asking people to use bank cards instead of cash if possible. Social distancing measures have also been put in place for those who wish to attend the Town Hall or Kilkivan office.

“If anyone in the community is unsure about how to access our online services, you can still call our 1300 307 800 number and one of the team will talk you through the process,” said Gympie Regional Council CEO, Bernard Smith.
“We want to make sure the community and Council are able to remain flexible in the services we provide during this time,” he said.

In response to the Federal Government’s social distancing laws, the following Council buildings are now closed:
• 242 Mary Street office
• The Pavilion
• Gympie Regional Libraries
• Gympie Regional Gallery
• Visitor Information Centre
• Planning and Development reception.

Planning and Development staff can be contacted during working hours via Council’s online services including email or telephone via:
• Planning: Phone 5481 0454. Email planning@gympie.qld.gov.au
• Building: Phone 5481 0490. Email building@gympie.qld.gov.au

A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 27 May 2020 A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 27 May 2020

From today, people across our region and the country will celebrate National Reconciliation Week. Although COVID - 19 may change the way we get together, it doesn’t change how we can reflect and acknowledge our history, our culture, our achievements and how each of us can individually contribute towards reconciliation in Australians.

In these COVID-19 times, Council will acknowledge the week a little differently. Today at our Council Ordinary Meeting, which will be live streamed, we will have a special acknowledgement of Country, we will commemorate Sorry Day and mark the commencement of Reconciliation Week.


Aunty Lillian Burke Butchulla Elder and President of Cooloola Aboriginal Services Inc. will share her story of the Stolen Generations and what reconciliation means for her. I’m very much looking forward to hearing Aunty Lillian speak and to Council continuing to work with traditional owners and indigenous groups across the region.

We will also be streaming a Reconciliation Week musical event from 7pm this Friday, live from the Civic Centre, plus other activities such as digital storytelling for our local schools. If you’d like to know more, head to the Council website.

The last few weeks have been very busy for Councillors. We are continuing to work on the budget as our priority. There have been some great conversations and I’m really proud of the work Councillors and staff are doing as we work on one of the toughest budgets we’ve seen.  We are focused on the core services and getting these right for you, our residents. It’s not going to be an easy job and some very hard decisions made as we look at how we can best serve the community.

Mayor Glen Hartwig
