Moree Council’s Road Network Consultative Group looking for new members
MOREE Plains Shire Council asset manager Kylie Kerr is inviting locals to come forward to represent the views, needs and expectations of the residents of Moree Plains Shire on local road issues.
Council is looking for locals willing to provide feedback and suggestions as a member of the Road Network Consultative Group about our local road network including road conditions vs budget allocations, user pays and self-help ideas.
“So many people already put forward their opinions on social media, in conversations at the pub or around the barbeque but if you really want to make change, you have put on the gloves and step up to the plate,” Mrs Kerr said.
Council is giving locals the opportunity to be part of the Road Network Consultative Group which meets quarterly on the fourth Thursday of the month at 10am.
“There are a few vacancies – firstly because one of the members stepped into the Councillor role and secondly as the other moved out of the area,” Mrs Kerr said.
“To make the consultative group work, you will need to read the documentation in advance, gather community feedback, and after the meetings discuss the outcomes with your contacts in the community.
“We know so many people have an opinion on council roads, so now’s the chance to actually make a difference,” she said.
Do you have a strong opinion on the road situation in Moree Plains?

Alternatively, email to [email protected] or fax to (02) 6752 3934.
Council must receive it by 4pm on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
