Welcome to the Shire of MERREDIN

Community Engagement #YOURSAYMERREDIN

You can find more information on our community engagement initiatives here. We use the #YourSayMerredin on our social media to indicate when we are accepting public feedback. We have a ‘Community Engagement Framework and Toolkit’ that we use in instances of formal community engagement, or when we want to gather feedback from a large group of people. We also address aspects of our community engagement approach in our Strategic Community Plan that you can read here.

If you would like us to formally engage in community feedback on an issue, or have suggestions on how we can improve our community feedback processes, please call us on 9041 1611.
