Bass Coast Shire Council will hold community forums at different locations across the Shire on the second Wednesday of every second month. The first community forum will be held on Wednesday 13 March 2002 at the Kernot Hall.
Cr Miranda Sage, Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council, explained that the community forums will provide an opportunity for members of the community to meet with Council and discuss issues in an informal setting.
“The community forums will give people a chance to talk with Councillors about local or Shire wide issues,” said Cr Sage.
“While there is currently question time at formal Council meetings, it has been recognised that there needs to be another forum where people can meet and talk to Councillors at length about issues,” said Cr Sage.
“Everyone is welcome at the sessions, so please come along when they are in your local area,” said Cr Sage.
