Community Council heads to Heatley

Date published: 17 September 2018

Townsville City Council will be holding another Community Council meeting at Heatley Secondary College tomorrow.

Division 7 Councillor Kurt Rehbein said Community Council provided local residents the opportunity to ask questions of the Mayor, Councillors and senior staff about anything in their area.

“This is another great way for residents to stay up-to-date with what’s happening in the local area,” Cr Rehbein said.

“Residents can ask questions about any issues in the local area and can put forward any ideas they may have.

“All the feedback and suggestions from residents will help with Council’s decision making process.”

The Mayor, Committee Chairs and key staff will be in attendance for residents to ask questions on any topics they wish.

Mayor Jenny Hill said she was proud to deliver on another promise to the community by bringing Council into the suburbs.

“I promised to increase engagement with the local community by holding regular Council meetings in the suburbs,” Cr Hill said.

“Community Council brings together all Councillors, Committee Chairs and senior staff to answer questions from residents and take feedback.”

Cr Hill said Community Council also included activities for the kids.

“It is a family friendly event so everyone is welcome to bring the kids and they can stay occupied with a range of free activities such as a sausage sizzle and the selections from CityLibraries will also be there,” Cr Hill said.

The Community Council public forum runs between 6pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday 18 September.

The event will be held at the Cyclone Shelter at Heatley Secondary College.
