Lower Eyre Peninsula Council commits to Meet and Greets

The Lower Eyre Peninsula District Council has committed to future Meet and Greet sessions across the district after holding seven sessions on September 19 and 30.

The council held sessions at Mount Hope, Mount Dutton Bay and Wangary on September 19 and at Edillilie, Kapinnie, Yeelanna and Cummins on September 30.

The sessions allowed the chance for communities to meet with mayor Jo-Anne Quigley, chief executive officer Rod Pearson and councillors and discuss local issues.

Mrs Quigley said there was a "generally positive vibe" at these meetings and valuable feedback was received in areas including roads, cemeteries, boat ramps and community parks.

The council has eight more Meet and Greet sessions planned in the next two months.

Sessions will take place at Greenpatch, Big Swamp Church, Wanilla and Coffin Bay Yacht Club on October 16 followed by sessions at White Flat, Lions Park at Boston, Tulka and Brinkworth Reserve on November 13.

Mr Pearson said the council had also visited communities the Louth Bay, North Shields and Poonindie this year.

He said the council planned to continue the sessions on an annual cycle and communities would be revisited so the council encouraged people to come along for an informal chat.

Mrs Quigley said the council was beginning its Strategic Plan Review and thanked everyone who replied to the strategic plan survey.

She said Strategic Plan community meetings have been planned as a starting point to the plan review, and Council looked forward to hearing from rate payers.

Strategic Plan meetings will be held at the Port Lincoln Golf Club on October 15, the Cummins Council Chambers on October 16 and Coffin Bay Yacht Club on October 17.

More information is available on the council's website.
