Plenty of exciting projects underway for you to get involved with

The knowledge, ideas and opinions of our community are very important to Council and right now we’ve got some exciting projects underway which we’d love for you to get involved with.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been asking for feedback on our proposed 2018/19 Budget and draft Domestic Animal Management (DAM) Plan, as well as calling for people to nominate for the DAM Plan Consultative Committee.

There’s just a couple of days left to have your say on both these projects, with feedback accepted until 5pm on Wednesday 23 May.

Meanwhile, the MyMitchell Photo Competition is in full swing, with entries rolling in from people showing off why they love where they live. The competition is open until 5pm on Friday June 8, with some great prizes up for grabs.

Applications are now open for the next term of the Mitchell Youth Council.

The advisory committee is open to those aged 12-24 years old who are passionate about young people and the issues they are facing and who want to make a real positive impact on our community.

We’re also asking for our community to assist us in the development of our new website and to let us know what council communication methods they think work best.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said community input was a key stage of any council project.

“Listening and acting upon feedback from our community is such an important part of what we do at council,” Cr Sanderson said.

“At the end of the day, we are here to serve our community and our residents are the ones who know best what their needs are, and that’s why we value their input so highly.

“We’ve got a number of important feedback opportunities available the moment, including the proposed council budget which effects our entire community, as well as some fun projects to get involved with such as the MyMitchell Photo Competition.

“We really love it when our community gets involved in what council is doing and I would strongly encourage our residents to head to our Engaging Mitchell website and make their voices heard.”
