A PUBLIC meeting will be held in Dingwall tonight (Tuesday) aimed at letting people know about the services available from a new Highland Council department.
It is one of a series of nine local events organised to inform folk about the restructured Community Services which deals with things such as refuse collection, grass cutting, winter maintenance, housing, homelessness and roads maintenance.
The meeting will take place in Dingwall Council Chambers between 6.30-8.30pm.
Service director William Gilfillan and committee chairman Councillor Graham MacKenzie will describe the variety of services that are provided, explain what the council does with the money available, and listen to what communities have to say about local services.
The next in the series of meetings will be held tomorrow, Wednesday October 29, at Tain Church Hall, (entrance via Queen Street), Tain, 6.30-8.30pm.
Cllr Graham Mackenzie, who is encouraging people to attend the local events, said: "The council delivers a huge range of services such as refuse collection, grass cutting, waste management, homelessness, roads maintenance and much more. This puts our staff in regular contact with most of you.
"The director of Community Services and I are keen to speak to you about how we deliver these services, how we might improve service delivery and what you could do more of yourselves to benefit your community. It would be great to see as many of you as possible during our round of open evenings."
