Residents urged to give council feedback at Community Engagement Sessions

REGION - Following on from last year's Postcard Survey and Community Listening Posts, Ararat Rural City Council will be holding Community Engagement Sessions during April and May.

Residents will be asked for their input into the services that Council delivers.

Mayor Cr Paul Hooper urged everyone to get involved in the Community Engagement Sessions, which will be held in various locations throughout the municipality.

"Council wants to hear what residents have to say about the services that they feel are important to them," Cr Hooper said.

"The Council is looking forward to hearing what residents and ratepayers think about Council services and Community Action Plans (CAPS).

"Residents can drop into their nearest Community Engagement Session and chat to Councillors about their views. A Community Engagement Survey has been developed to assist in collecting feedback."

Along with Council services, Councillors are keen to hear feedback on the soon to be released Draft Budget 2014/2015, revised Council Plan 2013 - 2017 and the Community Action Plans.
