Huskisson Woollamia Community Voice – Update and call for your topics
Below is a quick update, plus a call for topics / issues to be raised at our next meeting which will have Mayor Amanda Findley, and SCC senior staff.
Amanda Findley and appropriate senior staff will attend the next Voice meeting, Monday 1st August, commencing at 7.00pm.
In order to have the most appropriate staff attending we’re asking you to send us the topics OR questions OR items that you would like discussed at the meeting.
We will then collate this list and forward to Council. We’d like this to be a collaborative meeting where the outcome is a sense that we’re all working towards the same vision, and our respective roles in that.
You might like to think about and/or write how you’d like Huskisson and Woollamia to be in 20 years time, and what might need to be done, or changed to achieve that.
You might also raise concerns about day-to-day council matters.
Can you please email us with your thoughts by midnight 10th July.
