Council is coming to Yarragon – come and meet team


Council’s Rural Outreach Program will visit Yarragon on Thursday 8 July, giving locals a chance to meet their Councillors and Council’s senior management team.

Residents are invited to drop into the Yarragon Public Hall between 4pm and 6pm to discuss the issues that matter to them, with no appointment necessary.

It is the third pop-up Council in this year’s Rural Outreach Program following successful events in Longwarry and Seaview.

The Rural Outreach Program aims to give residents in rural and regional areas access to their Councillors and senior Council staff by bringing Council to them. The program will continue to Labertouche in September and Noojee in November.

All events will be held in accordance with the COVID-19 restrictions of the day.


Date: Thursday 8 July 2021

Time: 4.00pm to 6.00pm


Yarragon Public Hall, 7 Campbell St, Yarragon.

Quotes attributable to Mayor Cr Danny Goss

“We’re looking forward to talking to Yarragon residents and finding out how we can best support them. Baw Baw Shire is full of unique communities, so this is great opportunity for Council to get out and gain a first-hand understanding the issues and opportunities for each district.”

Quotes attributable to Deputy Mayor and East Ward Cr Michael Leaney

“All residents from Yarragon and the surrounding areas are welcome to drop into the session. This program is a great way to remove geographical barriers and ensure all Baw Baw Shire residents are heard and represented, whether they live in the main townships or in the far corners of our Shire.”

Quotes attributable to East Ward Cr Peter Kostos

“We’re delivering some exciting projects in Yarragon, like the new Dog Park opening later this year and the upgraded playground at Howard Park, but there’s always more to be done. Come and tell us directly what you want to see Council deliver in your community.”

Quotes attributable to East Ward Cr Darren Wallace

“This pop-up gives residents the chance to speak to Councillors and senior Council staff face-to-face. Come and talk to us about any local issues, or just pop in to ask a question, tell us your ideas or find out the latest on a project. We’re here to help.”
