Greater Bendigo City Councillors will roll out their latest community engagement opportunity this year, giving residents a chance to meet Councillors at local pubs to share a meal.
Meet those behind the decisions of your city to discuss important issues, in an informal environment.
Councillors will kick off the engagement series this month with dinner at the Marong Family Hotel on Thursday April 26 from 6pm-8pm.
Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke said the dinners would be treated similarly to listening posts.
“All councillors will be invited to attend and it will be a good way for residents to meet councillors other than those representing their ward.”
- Cr O’Rourke
“Councillors want to be accessible to residents and make it easy for them to meet up in their communities and at times that suit them, so we look forward to residents joining us for dinner as we make our way around to Greater Bendigo’s various small towns.”
- Cr O'Rourke
Councillors and residents are to pay for their own meals and drinks.
Residents wanting to come along to the Marong Family Hotel, please phone Councillor Support Officer Nicole Dunstone on 5434 6102 to reserve your spot.
The dinners are expected to take place every few months... so stay tuned.
