The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder has launched a collation of information on its website for community members and local businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said that the updates to the City’s web pages were necessary to ensure that the community could access a range of relevant information to support them during this difficult time.
“We know that our community as a whole are going through unprecedented times at the moment and there is an overwhelming amount of information to comprehend. The City’s website provides clear, current information for residents, community groups and small businesses.”
“Initiatives listed include the City’s $1m Fighting Fund alongside an array of positive community additions including ‘Follow The Rainbow Goldfields’, ‘Love For the Elderly’ and the ‘ANZAC Day Garden Poppy Tribute’. With businesses and sole traders finding the list of federal and state provisions relating to the JobKeeper payment, cash flow support and much more,” he said.
“The support small business page will host up to date information on who is delivering, online ordering and phone ahead and collect options. If your business has made changes to allow it to keep operating, we want to hear about it. Whether you are a food or beverage provider, retailer or have a virtual event you would like to share, if it’s happening in Kalgoorlie-Boulder then we want to help promote it.”
“We are asking our community at this time to continue to support small business where they can, whilst respecting and adhering to the regulations introduced to help stop the spread.”
Residents and Local Businesses are encouraged to visit the City’s website at ckb.wa.gov.au/coronavirus and ckb.wa.gov.au/supportsmallbusiness to keep up to date with Government economic stimulus packages and additional business and community information and support.
