Deniliquin businesses and tourism stakeholders are being encouraged to attend a council forum being held at the Deniliquin RSL Club today.
Part of the forum will include a discussion on Deniliquin Council’s proposed business levy, as well as council’s latest tourism initiatives.
Council manager economic and business development John Harvie said he would reveal more details on the business levy, which could see businesses pay an extra $295 as of the 2015/16 financial year.
Mr Harvie said council would also discuss Destination NSW’s Get Connected program.
‘‘It’s a register of New South Wales businesses, which businesses should sign up to,’’ he said.
‘‘We also want to talk to them about council’s tourism initiatives such as the Riverina Regional Tourism and Murray Regional Tourism Board and the benefits these partnerships bring.’’
Deniliquin Business Chamber president Paula Rutter said it was imperative businesses attend.
‘‘We want businesses to listen to the proposal, ask questions and voice their opinions,’’ she said.
