APPLICATIONS TO JOIN COMMUNITY COMMITTEES NOW OPEN
Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) has resolved to form a number of community committees and working parties to allow a public forum for Councillors and Council staff to consult with representatives of the local community on important local issues.
Mayor of Dubbo Regional Council, Mathew Dickerson said there are a variety of benefits in forming these community committees. “Community participation is essential for the development, monitoring, and delivery of council services. There is a need for credible platforms through which the community can participate in decision making and strategic direction for our region. These platforms aim to transform community participation and increase community engagement by giving them a formal avenue to raise priorities and concerns. The committees can also facilitate the implementation of actions to support positive community outcomes,” said Mayor Dickerson.
“There are Councillor representatives on each committee to ensure we are a part of the open dialogue between Council, industry representatives and community members,” he said.

- Aquatics Working Party
