Mayor at­tends com­mu­nity meet­ing

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

MANS­FIELD Shire Coun­cil mayor Paul Volk­er­ing, along with coun­cil­lor for Jamieson Ward Harry Wes­ten­dorp, joined in the Jamieson Com­mu­nity Group’s Septem­ber meet­ing last week.

The Jamieson Com­mu­nity Group, which meets once per month, had another solid turnout to dis­cuss up­com­ing events, the com­mu­nity’s wish list and res­i­dents’ con­cerns.

Cr Volk­er­ing said he was thrilled he made the trip out to Jamieson to see the com­mu­nity in ac­tion.

“It’s been re­ally worth­while,” Cr Volk­er­ing said.

“We’ve ob­vi­ously gone through a pretty tough bud­get, but we can’t do cer­tain things if we don’t know what’s go­ing on out there.”

Cr Volk­er­ing said that he is try­ing to get out to as many com­mu­nity meet­ings as pos­si­ble, to bet­ter work with them.

“We would like to be more re­spon­sive to the com­mu­nity,” Cr Volk­er­ing said.

“And if some­thing doesn’t get done, keep knock­ing on the door.

“That’s what we’re re­spon­si­ble for, to work for the rate pay­ers and to try and im­prove things as much as we can.”
