Murray Bridge mayor and CEO hit the road for their community
Wayne Thorley and Heather Barclay will kick off a roadshow-style tour of the district at Wellington this Friday.
Murray Bridge mayor Wayne Thorley and CEO Heather Barclay are launching drop-in sessions in which residents in the region can interact directly with them.
The council leaders have been engaging with residents through the popular Let’s Thrive community workshops, part of the council’s strategic plan 2024–28 consultation.
Based on the high level of community interaction at the workshops, Mr Thorley and Ms Barclay wanted to take community engagement to the next level.
They will make themselves available to the public at a series of regular events around the district, starting this Friday morning – between 9.30am and 12pm – at the Wellington Hall.
Ms Barclay said the drop-in sessions would create value for both the council and the community it served.
“We aim to create an ongoing conversation that brings us closer to the heart of our community,” she said.
“This innovative approach to community engagement exemplifies the Rural City of Murray Bridge’s commitment to transparent and inclusive governance.”
As the sessions will extend to outer townships, each part of the community will be able to participate and contribute to shaping the future of the region.
Mayor Thorley said he was thrilled to open an avenue for direct dialogue, where every voice would count.
