Douglas Shire Council is now communicating with the community via Facebook.
The Facebook site, www.facebook.com/douglasshirecouncil, is another way for Council to communicate with the Douglas Shire and share information on all the latest community events, local news and council updates.
Mayor Julia Leu said the new Facebook site would compliment Council’s website and encourage more dialogue with the community.
“There are so many great things going on in the community and our Facebook site will allow us to share this information with a wider audience,” Mayor Leu said.
“We have adopted the hashtag #godouglasshire because that’s really what our Facebook site is all about, sharing information about council and the wider community and celebrating achievements with the people of Douglas.
“Council welcomes any feedback on the Facebook site as we want it to become a useful community resource.”
