Mayor calls for residents to voice their opinion

2 June, 2011Posted in: Community

With less than a fortnight until the exhibition period closes on Council’s draft Delivery Program and Operational Plan, Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Councillor Ken Halstead is reminding residents to have their say.

“These documents represent Council’s blueprint for the Shire for the next 20 years and beyond,” he said.

“It’s vitally important that our residents contribute to the Shire that they want to be a part of. Mums and dads, our seniors and our youth should all have a say in the future of our Shire,” the Mayor added.

The draft 2011-13 Delivery Program and 2011-12 Operational Plan represent Council’s response to public input gathered from Wingecarribee 2031+, the community’s long-term plan for the Southern Highlands.

The draft documents detail Council’s immediate responses and short-term funding priorities together with a strategy to allocate Council resources to meet these future projects.

These documents, including the Revenue Policy, will be on exhibition until Friday 10 June 2011 and can be viewed online or at Council’s Moss Vale Civic Centre and at Council’s libraries.

Feedback and submissions must be made by close of business at 4.30pm on 10 June 2011 via email at: or in writing addressed to the General Manager at: PO Box 141, Moss Vale, 2577

“Planning for our future is a massive task, but with the community’s input, we’re confident we can help deliver an even better and brighter Southern Highlands.”
