ONE of Port Macquarie-Hastings Council’s last meetings before the September 8 election will take place in Laurieton next week.
As part of the ongoing “Taking Council to the Community” program, the meeting is one of a series held in parts of the local government area outside Port Macquarie to provide greater community access to council meetings.
The meeting will be held next Wednesday, August 15, in the Laurieton School of Arts Hall, on the corner of Bold and Laurie Streets, beginning at 5.30pm.
The meeting will be attended by the council Administrator, Neil Porter, and senior staff including its general manager and directors.
By prior arrangement members of the public can address the council about agenda items or in its public forum.
The business paper for the meeting will be available on the council’s website - www.pmhc.nsw.gov.au - on the Friday afternoon prior to the meeting and hard copies can be viewed at council offices and libraries on the Monday before the meeting.
Anyone wishing to address the meeting during the public forum needs to complete a “Request to Speak in Public forum” form, which can be lodged electronically through its website or through council offices by 4.30pm on Tuesday, August 14.
More information on the regulations applying to public forum addresses is also available on the council website.
