Your councillors are coming to you, in your community regularly throughout the year as part of Ipswich City Council’s Community Matters program.
The program provides an opportunity for residents to engage with councillors and discuss important issues in their area, provide feedback on projects and have a say about community engagement initiatives council is undertaking.
Division 1 Councillor Sheila Ireland said it is an opportunity for the community to have a say and tell councillors face-to-face what matters are important to them.
“These catch ups are a great opportunity for us to hear what you have to say about the changes you’d like to see in our community,” Cr Ireland said.
“It’s also a chance to get to know us and ask us any questions you may have.”
Division 1 Councillor Jacob Madsen said he can’t wait to see some familiar faces and encourages locals to come say hello.
“I encourage our community members to attend one of the Community Matters programs and catch up with us about important local issues,” Cr Madsen said.
“I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and to also meet some new Ipswich locals.”
