Wingecarribee Shire Council officers will be back on the road this month, visiting the residents of the Wombeyan Caves Road area on Wednesday 21 November 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 and in 2011 met with residents in Bundanoon, Burrawang, Balmoral, Canyonleigh and Mittagong. This year we’ve already been out to Wingello, Colo Vale, Avoca, Exeter, Berrima, Yerrinbool, Kangaloon and Robertson,” Mr Gordon said.
The Wombeyan Caves Road area Information Kiosk will be held at McVitty Grove Café, 434 Wombeyan Caves Road, on Wednesday 21 November between 4.00pm and 6.00pm.
Councillors have been invited to attend from 5pm. Residents are welcome to drop in during the kiosk hours but are encouraged to RSVP prior by calling (02) 4868 0888 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure appropriate Council staff are on hand to answer their queries.
Dates will soon be announced for next year’s kiosk locations.
