BEGA Councillors in the Community coming to a town near you

For the third year running, Bega Valley Shire Council’s Councillors in the Community sessions will be held across the Shire throughout November as part of an ongoing commitment to meeting people near or where they live.

Mayor Russell Fitzpatrick said the aim of the Councillors in the Community program was to enable members of the public to engage with councillors and senior staff in a relaxed and informal setting, about matters important to them.

“The sessions always bring out creative thinking on the challenges we face as a Shire and, this year in particular, we’re keen to have conversations about ideas for supporting and advancing the region in the wake of the summer bushfires and COVID-19,” Cr Fitzpatrick said.

“We want to hear from as many people as possible, hence the roaming nature of the sessions and evening scheduling.

“Councillors really look forward to these sessions. They’re a chance for us to engage on the topics that are important to residents and our focus is very much on working towards finding solutions for any concerns raised.”

All sessions start at 5:00pm and finish at 6:30pm.
