Call for Wim­mera-mallee wa­ter-panel representa­tives

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

The or­gan­i­sa­tion in charge of the Wim­mera-mallee’s do­mes­tic wa­ter sup­ply wants peo­ple to put their hands up to join an in­de­pen­dent panel to pro­vide ad­vice on wa­ter pric­ing.

Gwmwa­ter is mak­ing the call as part of an in­tense pe­riod of cus­tomer and stake­holder en­gage­ment de­signed to in­flu­ence and shape the fu­ture of the cor­po­ra­tion.

It has called for ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from wa­ter cus­tomers to join a de­lib­er­a­tive panel to pro­vide opin­ion, ad­vice and rec­om­men­da­tions on the cor­po­ra­tion’s pric­ing pro­pos­als and other mat­ters of sig­nif­i­cance.

A panel re­port will be part of a 20182023 Wa­ter Price Re­view Sub­mis­sion to the Es­sen­tial Ser­vices Com­mis­sion.

Gwmwa­ter man­ag­ing direc­tor Mark Wil­liams said the panel would rep­re­sent the cor­po­ra­tion’s broad cus­tomer base and re­port to the Gwmwa­ter board.

“The panel’s pur­pose is to help in­form us of com­mu­nity pref­er­ences re­gard­ing ser­vice pro­vi­sion and fu­ture pric­ing,” he said. “We’re invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from com­mu­nity mem­bers, land­hold­ers, busi­ness own­ers and other in­ter­ested peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate in our de­lib­er­a­tive panel.

“If suc­cess­ful, you’ll have the op­por­tu­nity to meet with 14 other mo­ti­vated in­di­vid­u­als from all walks of life, who live and work in the Wim­mera-mallee.

“The panel will be a sig­nif­i­cant voice and ful­fil an im­por­tant role in driv­ing our Wa­ter Price Re­view con­sul­ta­tion and en­gage­ment pro­gram. It’s com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion at its best.”
