  • When: 3.00pm - 7.00pm on Tuesday 18 June
  • Where: Longwarry Hall, 14 Kennedy Street
  • No appointment needed.

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

Council pop-up is a rural outreach program which aims to increase Council’s presence in a range of areas across the municipality, particularly those further from major townships.

Later in the year the program will also travel to Neerim, Willow Grove and Rawson. Residents in these communities will be able to drop-in, ask questions, share ideas and provide their valuable feedback to Council.
