  • How do you communicate with us and in what way can we improve how we engage with the community?

    over 7 years ago

    Suggestions for improving the way Council engages with the community are always welcome and feedback is actively being sought right now about the best communication channels to use with residents of all ages and locations.

    Village associations have specifically been invited to provide information about local communication channels and responses are already coming through.

    Residents can now complete a survey online or collect printed surveys from local libraries, the RRC and the Moss Vale Civic Centre. Surveys must be returned by 18 June 2012 and all information provided will be treated in strict confidence.

    The response to these surveys will be used to guide the way Council informs and involves the community. 

    Surveys can also be downloaded for printing at home, then scanned and emailed back but if you're online we recommend going paperless!

    For further information contact Charmaine Cooper, Community Engagement Coordinator on 02 4868 0861 or email charmaine.cooper@wsc.nsw.gov.au

    Wingecarribee Shire Council is seeking comments from the community regarding a proposal to offer regular green waste services. Feedback is being sought on the acceptance of such a service, preferred method of collection, frequency and costing.

    At present, Council offers an organic garden waste collection service on a pay per use basis for current domestic waste users. Garden waste must not exceed two cubic metres and pick ups must be booked in advance. This service is in addition to our regular twice a year Clean Up service.

    Options for future management of organic garden waste include a continuation of the current service, bi-annual kerbside cleanups, fortnightly collection of green bins and use of vouchers.

    As part of its community engagement process Council will randomly issue 4,000 mail surveys to ratepayers but residents who don’t receive a survey in the mail can also participate by completing an online survey or a printed survey.

    Information kits which explain current services, report how green waste is managed and explore the pros, cons and costs associated with different options, are available online or can be collected from Council’s Civic Centre in Moss Vale or Mittagong, Bowral and Moss Vale libraries.

    Councillors will decide upon the preferred option once responses have been collated.

    The deadline for return of surveys is Friday 30 March 2012.

    To read the information kit, print a survey or complete an online survey CLICK HERE.

    For further information contact Wingecaribee Shire Council on (02) 4868 0888 or email wscmail@wsc.nsw.gov.au.
