City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Councillors will be making themselves more available to the community, spending time each week in the Kalgoorlie Town Hall.
Mayor John Bowler said the relocation of the CBD Customer Service Centre to the Town Hall in March allowed for greater opportunities for the Councillors to meet and engage with the community.
“As we move out of the COVID-19 restrictions, we’re looking at ways we can be more in touch with the residents and broader community, and the Kalgoorlie Town Hall, as the civic heart of our City, is the perfect place for this to happen,” he said.
“On Monday, Councillors Gary Brown, Pam Townsend and I will all be available in the Town Hall, and people can get in touch with us directly, or make an appointment by calling our Customer Service Team, and meet with us in the Kalgoorlie Town Hall.
“One of the visions outlined in our Strategic Community Plan 2020-2030 is that we will be a city that listens first and then delivers on what it plans and promises, and this is the first in a number of initiatives we will be rolling out to make sure the community has the opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions with us.
“At the moment we have the schematic designs for the Kal City Centre on display, and the review of the Town Planning Scheme is also coming up, so having Councillors in the Town Hall will give people the opportunity to view and discuss these with us face to face.”
A roster of Councillor availability can be found on the City’s website at www.ckb.wa.gov.au/CouncillorRoster, and appointments can be made directly with Councillors or by calling the City’s Customer Service Team on 9021 9600.
