Wingecarribee Shire Council officers will be visiting the residents of Robertson on Thursday 26 June 2014 as part of a mobile roadshow.

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

A number of Council officers will be available to discuss key issues with locals including sewer connection and plans for the Caalong Street bridge upgrade.

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

“We’re also delighted to have the Robertson Rural Fire Brigade and WorkCover NSW join us to share information as well.”

“The roving kiosk concept grew from community feedback received during preparation of Wingecarribee 2031+, the long-term community strategic plan for the Southern Highlands, when Council was told that it needed to be more actively involved, accessible and visible to the public.

“We have been visiting a town or village in the Shire each month since May 2011 and this will be our second visit to Robertson,” Ms Prendergast said.

The Information Kiosk will be held at Robertson CTC, Hoddle Street, Robertson on Thursday 26 June 2014 between 4pm and 6pm.

Councillors often attend the kiosks from 5pm however residents are encouraged to make appointments directly with them to ensure availability. Phone and email details for councillors can be found at www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/councillors or call (02) 4868 0888.

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.

Further Council Information Kiosks have been scheduled for 2014 and can be found at www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/council-information-kiosks.
