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.

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.
