With final touches being added this week, our community are invited to join Councillors and staff on Wednesday 14 December following the last Ordinary Meeting of Council for 2016 for the long-awaited reopening of Council’s Chinchilla Customer Service Centre.

  • We’ll be open for business at 80-86 Heeney Street from 8am on Tuesday 13 December, with staff set to move into the refurbished facility this week;
  • To celebrate the official reopening the community are invited to join Mayor Paul McVeigh, Councillors and staff for a tour of the refurbished facility and afternoon tea at 1pm;
  • Following extensive damage sustained during the October 2015 hail storm, Council took the opportunity to coordinate repair works with upgrades to the building improving efficiency and customer service to our residents.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Facilities Councillor Ray Brown thanked the community and staff for being so accommodating and understanding throughout the refurbishment process.

“While our staff worked out of the temporary office it was great to see our community in Chinchilla show their support and understanding over the last 12 months as we completed repairs,” he said.

“Even though our Customer Service Centre sustained some pretty extensive damage during last year’s severe hail storm, we saw this as a great opportunity to focus on improving how we can better service our communities.

“The chance to coordinate repair works with upgrades to the building has meant we’ve delivered a Customer Service Centre with improved efficiency and energy consumption, which in turn means we can continue to deliver value for money services to our community.

“It’s great to see this facility back up and running within the project timeframe, and we’re inviting our community to come join us on Wednesday 14 December to celebrate the Chinchilla Customer Service Centre official reopening.”

The Chinchilla Customer Service Centre at 80-86 Heeney Street will be reopened for business on Tuesday 13 December at 8am. For Council enquiries please call 1300 COUNCIL.
