All welcome to two extra Council pop-ups this December


Community members are invited to meet and chat with the Mayor, Councillors, CEO and Council Officers at two additional Council pop-up sessions to take place before Christmas.

Council pop-up is an outreach program which aims to bring Council closer to communities in both rural and major townships.

The sessions provide a transparent and open-communication platform for community members to discuss ideas and concerns, ask questions and provide feedback to Council.

Mayor Cr Danny Goss, Councillors, CEO Alison Leighton, Executive and Council Officers will be in attendance and available for discussions.

Two additional sessions have been scheduled:

Palmerston Street Kiosk

When: 2.00pm – 4.00pm on Thursday 19 December

Where: Palmerston Street Kiosk, 23 Palmerston Street, Warragul

Warragul Farmers Market

When: 8.30am – 1.00pm on Saturday 21 December

Where: Warragul Civic Park, Civic Place, Warragul

Previous sessions have been held in Thorpdale, Longwarry, Neerim South and Willow Grove. A Council pop-up in Rawson is scheduled to take place from 3.00pm to 6.00pm this afternoon (Thursday 12 December).

All community members are welcome to attend, no bookings required.

As noted by Mayor Cr Danny Goss

“Our community want to see the Mayor and Councillors out in the community so they can relay their issues to us first hand. We are responding to that call. These Council pop-ups are about providing a transparent and open-door environment to communicate with residents in a casual and relaxed setting. We welcome everyone to come along and chat with us at any of the upcoming sessions. We want to hear your thoughts first hand.”

As noted by CEO Alison Leighton

“Each Council pop-up session over the past year has attracted a great turnout and engaged a range of constructive conversations across a diverse variety of interests and concerns. We will continue to take these pop-ups to our regional townships, but we’re also keen to chat with those in our bigger townships to ensure we’re accessible to all areas of our community.”
