The Lithgow City Council has endorsed the Draft Operational Plan 2015-2016 and Draft Fees & Charges 2015-2016 and is calling for public submissions on the Plan. To ensure that the community is fully informed, the Council will be conducting public briefing sessions in Hartley, Wallerawang and the Capertee Valley over the next two weeks.
“The Council would like to invite all members of the community to come along to any of the briefing sessions”, said Mayor Maree Statham. “The Briefing sessions provide an excellent opportunity for members of the public to be informed of what is in the Draft Operational Plan as well as to ask questions of Councilors and staff.”
“Copies of the Draft Operational Plan and Draft Fees & Charges can be read at the Lithgow, Wallerawang and Portland libraries; the Council’s Administration Centre and are available for downloading on the Council’s web site www.lithgow.nsw.gov.au”, continued the Mayor.
“Council would like to receive written submissions concerning those items that members of the community wish to see supported by the Council as well as those that they do not wish supported”, the Mayor concluded.
Briefing sessions will be held at:
GLEN ALICE: Wednesday 29 April at 6pm, Glen Alice Community Hall
WALLERAWANG: Tuesday 5 May at 6.30pm, Wallerawang Bowling Club
HARTLEY: Wednesday 6 May at 6.30pm, Old Hartley Schoolhouse.
Council’s Corporate Strategy & Communications Officer will be available to discuss the Plans at the Lithgow Library Learning Centre on Wednesday 29th April from 10 – 11.30am.
For further information contact Council’s Administration Centre on 6354 9999.

All feedback from these briefing sessions and written public submissions will be tabled with Council for consideration prior to making its final decision in June.
Actively engaging the community in decision making processes that affect their future is part of Council’s Governance & Civic Leadership Strategy in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
