Baw Baw Shire Council’s next Council Pop-up session is heading to Longwarry on Thursday 18 March. All residents are invited to come along and speak to their Councillors and senior Council team members about the issues that matter to them.
Council Pop-up is a rural outreach program that aims to increase Council’s presence in a range of areas across the municipality, particularly those further from major townships.
Following the success of Council Pop-up sessions in 2019 and late 2020 and the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, Longwarry has been selected as the next location.
Longwarry Council Pop-up
- When: 4.00pm – 6.00pm on Thursday 18 March
- Where: Longwarry Hall, 14 Kennedy Street
Opening times have been extended into the evening to be more flexible around resident’s school and work commitments.
Later in the year the program will also travel to Seaview, Yarragon, Labertouche and Noojee. Residents in these communities and surrounding areas will be able to drop-in and talk with Councillors and members of the Executive team about all matters affecting them and their community.
