“The council is aware there have been discussions and concerns raised by the Jeparit community regarding the proposed refurbishment of the existing Council Customer Service Centre and Senior Citizens Room to establish a public library,” Cr Gersch said.

“The session will be a great opportunity to assure people the room will continue to be available. All of the initiatives to be discussed are aimed at improving community and public spaces and therefore increasing the aesthetics and amenities for residents and visitors.”
