Kundabung Community Catch-up

Kundabung Hall

Council’s next Community Catch-up will be held in Kundabung on Thursday 27 June from 5pm to 7pm at Kundabung Hall.

Less formal than a Council meeting, the Catch-ups involve Councillors and senior Council staff out in the community inspecting sites of interest, answering questions and building relationships. They are designed to give residents the opportunity to find out more about projects and priorities specific to their area of the Macleay.

Residents attending the Catch-up are encouraged to submit their Kundabung-related questions for discussion via Council’s community engagement website, Your Say Macleay.
