Mount Larcom to host upcoming ‘Conversations with Council’
After the successful launch of Conversations with Council in Gladstone, Councillors and Council staff will be at the Mount Larcom RTC Wed 14 Aug to connect, discuss and engage with community members.
Taking place from 9am – 11am, Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said Conversations with Council was about bringing together community members and Gladstone Region Councillors and staff from Gladstone Regional Council.
“If you have a questions or queries on your mind about the Gladstone Region and the role Council plays, this is the perfect opportunity to come along and ask them,” Councillor Burnett said.
“We held the first Conversations with Council at Stockland Gladstone Shopping Centre, and it was a great way to get out into the community and have a chat.
“Our role as Councillors is to be the voice of the community, so by starting these conversations, we can ensure your voice is being heard.”
Cr Burnett said community members are a wealth of information when it comes to their community, and Conversations with Council is a great avenue for Council to access that.
Conversations with Council will take place at various locations across the region, to ensure each individual community is having their say on what is unique to where they live.
“Not only is it a time to ask questions, it is also a time to gain answers, especially around topics such as the waste levy, rates, upcoming events and updates on current Council projects,” he said.
Conversations with Council will take place from 9am – 11am, Wednesday 14 August at the Mount Larcom Rural Transaction Centre.
