Second Community Forum to be held at Wellington

Dubbo Regional Council will hold an informal community forum at Wellington on Monday, 4 March to give the public a chance to meet with Councillors and Senior Staff.

At Council’s meeting held on 27 August 2018, it was resolved that a Community Forum would be held in Wellington three times per year to give the public the opportunity to meet with Councillors, CEO Michael McMahon, Directors and Managers.

The forum, to be held at the Wellington Bowling Club, is a chance to have one-on-one informal discussions with elected representatives and senior staff to raise matters for consideration.

The public can call in any time between 5.30pm and 7.30pm to take part and no booking is required.

The first of the forums was held in December and saw a number of issues brought up by community members. Concerns about long day care in Wellington, the beautification of CBD and town entrances, and building usage are being investigated by Council after being raised at the first forum.

Mayor of the Dubbo Region Ben Shields said that was the kind of result that could come from the Community Forum and encouraged people to come along and take the opportunity to discuss their concerns with Council in the informal setting. 

“Councillor Greg Mohr placed a notice of motion for a masterplan to beautify the town and its entrances at the December Council meeting after it was raised by residents,” Councillor Shields said.

“This is great opportunity for people to come and talk not just to the Mayor or Councillors but also to the CEO and Directors about issues that are affecting them.

“The last forum was the catalyst for an important Wellington masterplan and that is the kind of result that can happen if the community supports it.”
