Wingecarribee Shire Council officers will be visiting the residents of Glenquarry on Wednesday 19 June 2013 as part of a mobile roadshow.

Council’s General Manager Jason Gordon said the information kiosks are an opportunity for residents to ask questions of Council without having to visit the Moss Vale Civic Centre.

“Staff from numerous departments will be on hand to answer questions and promote a whole range of Council services in an informal environment. Engineers, planners, rangers and customer and community service officers will be in attendance to answer any specific Council-related queries residents may have.”

The idea of the one-stop-shop was developed from community feedback received during preparation of the long-term community plan for the Southern Highlands Wingecarribee 2031+.

“This initiative is a direct response from residents who told us they wanted Council to be more actively involved in the community. We introduced the information kiosk concept to become more accessible and visible to the public.

“We have been visiting a town or village in the Shire each month since July 2011. Glenquarry is the last area to be visited for the first time. In July we will return to Bundanoon,” Mr Gordon said.

The Glenquarry Information Kiosk will be held at Glenquarry Hall, on Wednesday 19 June between 4pm and 6pm.

Councillors have been invited to attend from 5pm and appointments can be made directly with them.

Residents are welcome to drop in during the kiosk hours but are encouraged to RSVP prior by calling (02) 4868 0888 to ensure appropriate Council staff are on hand to answer their queries.

The next Council Information Kiosk will be held in Bundanoon on 17 July 2013.
