Cr Rebecca Patersonhas been elected Mayor for City of Monash Council and Cr Stuart James, Oakleigh Ward Councillor as Deputy Mayor. Hope you will work together with community to achieve many things during your term.
The Local Government Community SatisfactionSurvey 2014 revealed that Monash Council needed to improve in community Consultation & Engagement and Communication. Due to this, the council has decided to hold ‘listening posts’ in different areas for the community to have an opportunity to raise issues or provide feedback. For those of you who do not know what ‘listening posts’ are, it means Council staff members will attend different areas where the community will be able to approach them and raise any concerns they have.
There will be a ‘listening post’ on Sunday 20 July 8am – 1pm at Mulgrave Farmers Market. This is your chance to inform the Councillors or council staff members of any concerns you have. Don’t forget to bring your ‘sticky notes’!
Other Listening Posts will be held:
Thursday 31 July, 3.30 – 6.30 pm
The Glen level 2
Saturday 2 August, 10.30 – 12.30 am
Holmesglen Reserve Ashwood
Saturday 23 August, 10.30am – 12.30pm
Warrawee Park, Oakleigh
