The Lithgow City Council has endorsed the Draft Operational Plan 2014-15 and Draft Fees & Charges 2014-2015 and is calling for public submissions on the Plan. To ensure that the community is fully informed, the Council will be conducting public briefing sessions in Rydal, Hartley and Capertee over the next two weeks.
“The Council would like to invite all members of the community to come along to any of the briefing sessions”, said Mayor Maree Statham. “The sessions provide an excellent opportunity for members of the public to be informed of what is in the Draft Operational Plan as well as to ask questions of councillors and staff.”
“Copies of the Draft Operational Plan and Draft Fees & Charges can be read at the Lithgow, Wallerawang and Portland libraries; the Council’s Administration Centre and are available for downloading on the Council’s web site www.lithgow.nsw.gov.au”, continued Mayor Statham.
“Council would like to receive written submissions concerning those items that members of the community wish to see supported by the Council as well as those that they do not wish supported”, concluded Mayor Statham.
For further information contact Council’s Administration Centre on 6354 9999.
Written public submissions close on Friday 23 May at 4.30pm. Submissions may be sent to the General Manager, Lithgow City Council, PO Box 19, Lithgow 2790, or to firstname.lastname@example.org. gov.au.
