Cabonne Council News: Council conducts a public forum where community members can have their say on items of business that are within the responsibilities of council. Public forums are held on the second Tuesday of each month commencing at 2pm with the next one being Tuesday 12th May. Sometimes there are many people wanting to speak, so the length of time for each speaker is limited to 5 minutes and the total number of speakers is limited to 4 per session. The arrangements for community members to speak at a Council meeting have changed at the moment while they have moved meetings to a video-conferencing platform. If you wish to speak during the public forum section of the meeting please contact the Office of the General Manager on 6392 3208 for more information.
Letter to the Editor: Hello Phoenix, Thank you for publishing Ima’s letter. I agree wholeheartedly and believe it’s totally inappropriate for anyone, let alone a person of ‘standing’ in the community, to defame chili and coriander. Inexcusable and I agree that Mr Ward should make a public apology. Regards, Anne Vincent.
