Having your say
Orange City Council seeks community input and feedback on a range of issues. Stakeholder engagement is an important element of the Council decision-making process.
Comments and submissions must be made in writing so they can be seriously considered and the information collated into a report to be considered by a council meeting. Comments can only be considered as formal submissions if the author’s details are included.
People who wish to have their say should keep the mind that written submissions from the community may be made public as part of a report to a Council meeting.
Because a number of matters are always up for public comment, submissions must make it clear which topic is being addressed.
