Mount Isa City Council will host procurement and purchasing workshops this month, reflecting its commitment to supporting local businesses and contractors.
The workshops will be held at the Civic Centre on Tuesday, August 27, 7.30am-8.30am, and on Wednesday, August 28, 6pm-7pm.
They will outline upcoming opportunities to work with council, how businesses can get involved, and how businesses can register their services on council’s supplier lists.
“These workshops will give local contractors and businesses an opportunity to chat face-to-face with council officers and managers, learn what infrastructure projects are in the pipeline for the year ahead, and gain a real and practical insight into Council processes and what they need to do to get involved,” Mayor Joyce McCulloch said.
“We are always striving to provide great service to all of our customers and local stakeholders – this new initiative is a great demonstration of our aim to better serve and engage our local business community.
“With $32 million in capital works and $56 million in operational schedules, Council’s 2019/20 Budget includes a range of significant and important projects.”
