Residents reminded to submit rates survey

Clarence Valley residents have been reminded to submit their views on measures to improve the Council’s long-term financial sustainability before the closing date, this Friday, September 25. Council general manager, Scott Greensill, said he had been impressed by the number of people who had already responded, but wanted to make sure everyone had the opportunity to have their voice heard. “As of this morning we have had more than 3300 printed survey forms returned and another 400 who have filled in the online survey at,” he said. “We’ve also conducted a random phone survey of 500 Clarence residents to get their views. “That’s a pretty decent response, but we don’t want to miss anyone who wants to express a view.” Survey forms are available at council offices in Grafton and Maclean or can be done online at “Where possible, we would prefer people to take the online survey as it makes it easier to collate the results,” Mr Greensill said.
