Whittington to host council meeting and BBQ

Wednesday, 7 August 2019

Brownbill Ward residents will get the chance to connect with their local councillors, when the Community Focus council meeting is held in Whittington on Tuesday 13 August at 7:00pm.

The City is also holding a free meet-and-greet BBQ beforehand at 6:00pm, to give residents the opportunity to speak with councillors informally.

The BBQ and council meeting will be held at the Bellarine Living and Learning Centre on 20 Worden Court in Whittington.

The meeting will begin with a snapshot of local projects from Brownbill Ward Councillor and Deputy Mayor Peter Murrihy, Councillor Eddy Kontelj and Councillor Sarah Mansfield.

The Whittington meeting supports our commitment to being accessible by offering residents around the region an opportunity to attend meetings in convenient locations.

It follows previous Community Focus council meetings this year in Drysdale, Anakie, Hamlyn Heights, Belmont, Corio and Indented Head.

Deputy Mayor Peter Murrihy - Brownbill Ward

Councillors have really enjoyed visiting different locations in the region, as council continues its focus on making council meetings accessible to all and transparent.

The Community Focus council meetings are also a fantastic chance for residents to get an update from ward councillors on what’s happening in their own backyard, with a presentation at the beginning of the meeting.

Councillor Eddy Kontelj - Brownbill Ward

I encourage residents from Whittington and surrounding suburbs to come along next Tuesday for an informal chat at the free BBQ before the council meeting.

This meet-and-greet is a great opportunity for locals to raise any issues, but also get to know the councillors representing the area.

Councillor Sarah Mansfield - Brownbill Ward

I’m looking forward to meeting with residents in my ward and hearing about what’s important to them. Please feel free to say hello and bring up any matters you might have on your mind.

These Community Focus council meetings give residents the chance to raise issues and watch how council comes to its decisions, in a convenient location.
