29 Sep 2014

Hurstville City Council has launched a new after-hours initiative at Hurstville City Library that enables residents and ratepayers to access a number of Council services outside traditional business hours.

The service is available Monday to Friday 5.00pm to 9.00pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 9.30am to 4.00pm.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Con Hindi has welcomed the initiative that allows customers to pay their rates, request a service, apply for consent to remove or prune a tree, obtain information about Council’s waste services, register their pets and much much more.

“Council is committed to providing the community with innovative ways to conduct their business more efficiently and effectively,” he said.

“Customers can now access Council services at their leisure, seven days a week.”

Mayor Hindi said the new service provides the community with an additional 33 hours a week in which they can undertake business with Council.

“In an era when many people are time poor, initiatives such as these allow for greater flexibility and convenience,” he said.

Services available from Hurstville City Library after-hours include:
• Rates payments
• Tree applications
• Bin and waste enquiries
• Requests for service
• Booking a building inspection
• Pet registrations
• Assistance with Section 149 planning certificate application
• Purchase worm farm or compost bin

This initiative is in addition to the after-hours telephone service and online forms where customers can contact Council 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
