Have a yarn with Council

Council has many key community engagement opportunities happening across Glenorchy during March, April, May, and June. It’s important that everyone has a chance to have their say on what’s happening in our city. Community engagement helps Council’s decision makers understand how residents, ratepayers and the wider community feel about important topics.
