Still time left to leave feedback on Draft Rating Strategy

Time is running out to leave feedback on our Draft Rating Strategy!

Our Draft Rating Strategy is now available and residents are invited to have their say.

The Draft Rating Strategy proposes more equity between ratepayers by reducing the municipal charge to 10 percent of total property rating income and remove the differential discount for residential, commercial and industrial properties outside of Maryborough.

Community members can leave their feedback via an online survey at www.centralgoldfields.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay or by writing a submission addressed to Submissions, Central Goldfields Shire Council, PO Box 194, Maryborough, 3465 or by emailing submissions@cgoldshire.vic.gov.au

The closing date for feedback is Monday 1 April, 2019.

Community Voice Panel membership extended

A large number of registrations were received for the Central Goldfields Shire Community Voice Panel from residents who have an interest in Council activities, projects and issues.

Community Voice Panel members will have the opportunity to have ongoing input into Council-decision making and provide Council with insights into community sentiments and support for existing or proposed policies, programs and services.

Due to limited registrations from young people and residents from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background, Council is extending registrations to encourage more interest from these groups.

If you are a young person aged 16-24 or are from an Indigenous background, visit
www.centralgoldfields.vic.gov.au/communityengagement to download a registration form.
