Get involved in Local Government Week 2016

Published Friday, 29th July 2016

Fairfield City Council will celebrate NSW Local Government Week 2016 next week by inviting residents to visit mobile offices at various locations throughout Fairfield City.

Held from 1-7 August, Local Government Week is an opportunity to highlight the important services councils provide by involving the community in fun and informative events.

Council staff will “hit the road” next week, bringing the Council to residents at mobile offices in three locations:

  • Wednesday: Neeta City, Fairfield, from 10am-1pm
  • Thursday: Bonnyrigg Plaza, Bonnyrigg, from 10am-1pm, and
  • Friday: Stockland Wetherill Park, from 10am-1pm

Staff will be on hand to answer residents’ questions about all Council services. It is an opportunity to explore what Council is doing to deliver successful services and benefits to the community.

Council provides a range of day-to-day services to the community and is responsible for issues that affect our daily lives.
