IPSWICH City Council’s Division 10 office in Rosewood will be temporarily shifted this month (September).
Division 10 Councillor David Pahlke said his John St office was being moved to 8-10 John St next to Elly-Rae Fashions, four doors up from its current location. The current office will be closed for one day only on September 11 with the move to the new temporary office taking place on September 12 and 13.
“My office staff and I will be operating fully from this new location from September 16 for a period of up to six weeks,” Cr Pahlke said. “This shift is necessary to allow essential maintenance works to be carried out to my current office space in the Rosewood Plaza. “The works to be carried out include ceiling repairs, repainting, recarpeting, the installation of a new data cabinet and the installation of new power points and TV cabling. “I have been based in this complex for approximately 15 years and it has been more than 10 years since this office, the second I have occupied in this complex, has been refurbished.”
Cr Pahlke said once completed the refurbishment would benefit the community groups who used the meeting room available on-site. “However, in the short-term there will be some disruptions as the meeting room will not be available while the temporary office is operational. “I apologise for any disruption to the community as a result of these essential works. “We will still be able to meet most of the needs of the community in the ways we normally do, just from a different location for a short time.
“We thank the community for their patience during this time and look forward to welcoming them down the track to our new office space.”
