Victoria promises closer rural engagement
The Victorian Government has pledged to form deeper relationships with the state’s rural and regional councils, following a series of meetings between regional councils and the State Minister for Local Government Adem Somyurek.
Mr Somyurek said that the ongoing round of meetings will provide for a deeper understanding of the specific needs of regional Victoria.
“Meeting with councils across rural Victoria provides valuable insight into how each municipality functions and how the Know Your Council tool is helping communities better understand their council,” Mr Somyurek said.
Minister Somyurek will continue engaging with rural councils over the next few weeks to discuss reform priorities and understand in more depth the issues faced by the smaller rural shires.
