Latrobe Cityís Moe, Morwell and Traralgon Citizen Service Centres, libraries and Council depots and offices will be closed until 12.30pm this Tuesday as a mark of respect to Councillor Graeme Bondís family, and to allow staff the opportunity to attend Councillor Bondís funeral. The funeral takes place at Saint Michaelís Church in Traralgon at 10.30am.

Latrobeís Chief Executive Officer, Richard Hancock, said Councillor Bondís death on Friday had come as a great shock to Council and the community.

"The Mayor, Councillor Jenkins, fellow Councillors and staff have expressed deep regret at the passing of Lorikeet Ward Councillor, Graeme Bond, on Friday. Our sincerest sympathies are extended to Cr Bondís family and friends," Mr Hancock said.

"Arrangements have been put into place to minimise any inconvenience to the public. While Citizen Service Centres, depots and offices will be closed until 12.30pm, community services such as Aged and Disability Services, Child Care, Family Support and Meals on Wheels services will operate as normal, together with recreational facilities," Mr Hancock said.

Mr Hancock said Councilís after-hours emergency contacts and procedures would remain in place during the closure. The after hours emergency telephone number is 0408 512 953.

Public enquiries relating to any Lorikeet Ward Council matters, should be addressed to Latrobe Cityís Citizen Service staff, telephone 1300 367 700.
