The Community Conversations event series is an intiative of the Town of Port Hedland, to better engage, inform and listen to the community.
Through the events, the Town can learn more about the issues affecting our residents, and what we can do to assist in ensuring their needs are being met.
The event will be held on a bi-monthly basis, with the topics and venues determined by the community based on their feedback. The first topic was 'Your rates, how they are determined and the key role they play in the annual budget'. Over 25 community member attended the event and all provided valuable comment and input on the 2013/14 proposed rates in the dollar, and on the overall provision of services and facilities expected from ratepayers.
More information on each event can be found in the below folders, including Frequently Asked Questions, copies of the presentation and any other relevant documents etc.
