Opening times have been extended into the evening to be more flexible around residents’ school and work commitments.

As noted by Mayor Cr Danny Goss

“These sessions are a great opportunity for us to get around to different areas, have a cuppa and chat with residents. No one knows their own community better than locals, so we invite everyone in the Rawson/Erica area to come down and get involved in the conversation.”

As noted by Deputy Mayor and East Ward Cr Peter Kostos

“This session will be the fifth Council pop-up in regional areas of our Shire. The previous four sessions have been well received and attended by local communities and we look forward to a great turnout in Rawson.”

As noted by East Ward Cr Michael Leaney

“I’m passionate about improving services in the far east of our Shire. If you’re local to Rawson, Erica and surrounds with any questions or concerns for Council, I’d love to meet you and see how we can help.”

As noted by East Ward Cr Darren Wallace

“Council pop-up is all about bringing Council and regional communities closer together. If you have any enquiries about customer service, roads, rates and revenue, recreation, planning or anything else, we’ll be on hand to help you out. We hope to see you there!”
