Residents, ratepayers and visitors are invited to find out more about their Council at two open days to be held on 27 July in Wonthaggi and 3 August in Cowes.

Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council, Cr. Miranda Sage, said that the two open days were an opportunity for people to have their questions answered about how Council operates and the service it provides.

"The open days will be relaxed affairs where people can come and talk to Councillors and staff and find out about Council," said Cr. Sage. "People will also have the opportunity to provide feedback."

The two open days are the first in a series of open days and expos that Council plans to hold around the Shire over the next year. Information sessions will be held at some of the smaller towns in the municpality in the future. There are plans for expos in the summer that will showcase the services and facilities that Bass Coast Shire Council provides.

"The focus of these first two open days is really to take the mystery away from what Council does and how it operates," said Cr. Sage. "Councillors and Council staff are just members of the Bass Coast community like everyone else."

Cr. Sage explained Councillors, officers and senior staff members will be on hand to talk to people throughout the open days. The open days will also feature static displays and presentations about Council services and facilities.

The open days will be held at the Bass Coast Civic Centre on Friday 27 July from 10am to 8pm and Friday 3 August at the Cowes Cultural Centre from 10am to 8pm.

People who would like more information about the open days should contact Stacey Skilton at Council on 5671 2211 or 5951 3311.
